This is a classroom action research that aims to improve the quality of the learning process by motivating students, creating a more enjoyable learning environment, and increasing mastery of English vocabulary using a Game-Based Learning approach. This research design is based on the model developed by Kemis and McTaggart (1998), and it was implemented in two cycles, each of which had four stages: planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting. Data were gathered through observation, interviews, and documentation on a performance evaluation sheet (study result test) and an observation sheet. Furthermore, data were descriptively analyzed using Miles and Huberman's interactive analysis model, and the steps were data reduction, data displaying, and conclusion drawing/verification. The findings of this study show that before using this method, students' vocabulary mastery was very low. In cycle 1, after using the Game method to learn vocabulary, the results for each indicator improved significantly. The percentage of students passing the first test rose to 56% and continue increasing to 88% in cycle 2. Therefore, it is concluded that the Game-Based Learning method can improve the quality of the vocabulary learning process and students' vocabulary mastery.
