Idiom Card Game Idiom Card Game

A dice is also needed. For two to six players although eight could be done at a push with only 5 cards to each player. Two players could extend their cards to eight each Print out the cards double sided and laminate. The packs that have the scenarios have a number printed on the back. There should be 6 mini packs like this and they should be placed face down on the table. The idioms cards have questions marks on the back and they should be handed out to the players, 6 each. The first player throws a dice and picks up a context card from the corresponding number on the pack. The player reads out the context and places it in front of the pack face up. If anybody has an idiom card that corresponds exactly with the context given, they then throw their card into the middle of the table. The next person throws the dice and the process is repeated. The game finishes when one of the packs is depleted of cards or one of the players has thrown down all of their cards. The winner is the person with the least cards. *Sometimes, certain contexts can work for more than one idiom. For example, “Any Tom Dick or Harry can do it” also works for English is easy (although it was supposed to be “it’s not rocket science”). Similarly, “two heads are better than one” may also work for the “many hands make light work” context. However, they must agree grammatically in terms of conjugation and pronouns.*
