HELP TO FIND OR CREATE A TABOO GAME
 

I need to find and/or to create (if you know how I can get hold of software or a nice template) TABOO CARDS on the topic of HOUSES AND FURNITURE. It would be for INTERMEDIATE/UPPER-INTERM STUDENTS. I was thinking of cards with a matching picture (just in case they don´t recognise the word). I want to hold a competition with my students.

If anyone could help me find something (programme to create PRINTABLE cards; nice template; already-made cards on the topic,.......) I WOULD BE REALLY GRATEFUL TO YOU

Dear CHORIMA, if you keep asking here on the forum, the author of such game will answer you. I remember downloading a taboo game ( even 2) but do not remember the name of the  author. So, call loudly ! By the way, the game is really good. The sts are delighted.

TO CHEEZELS:

THANKS, YOU ARE A REALLY QUICK AND HELPFUL MIND....I ´ve checked the site you suggested. It ´s really good for many games BUT unfortunately there is no taboo template
 
(BTW, this is a basic introduction to the Taboo game: It is a good activity for students to describe things. The object of the game is for the clue-giver to describe the "guess" word on the very top of the card without saying any of the "taboo" words or phrases printed below. The rest of the team try to guess what is being described. It encourages fluency and compensatory strategies when they don´t know/remember a word)
 
TO CLASS CENTRE:
yes, I think students will be delighted (in fact, they asked me for it)
