1 Speaking Cards ESL Card Game For 3 8 players Age: 8 + Level of English: High Beginners or False Beginners (at least 1 year of learning English) 62 QUESTION cards, 62 ANSWER cards, 8 LUCKY CARDS (together: 132 cards 10cm x 6cm they should be laminated or printed on stiff paper) The aim of the game is to collect the biggest number of cards (QUESTION cards and ANSWER cards). What counts in the game is the correctness of answers, but also perceptiveness and quick reactions. Shuffle QUESTION cards and put them in one pile in the middle of the table. Shuffle the ANSWER cards with LUCKY CARDS (3 if there are 3 players, 4 if there are 4 players, and so on). Deal 9 ANSWER cards to each person if there are 3 to 5 players taking part in the game and 6 cards to each person if there are 6 to 8 players taking part in the game. Put the rest of ANSWER cards in the pile next to QUESTION cards. Players can put their cards on the table or hold them in their hands (it doesn t matter if other players can see your cards). The oldest player starts the game by drawing one QUESTION card and reading the question. ATTENTION: the player who draws the QUESTION card cannot answer, because s/he has the answer printed under the question! The rest of the players listen to the question and look at their cards trying to find the correct answer. If someone has got the answer to the question s/he puts the card on the table and reads the answer aloud. The player who has read the QUESTION checks if the answer is correct. If yes, both cards are taken by the player who has found the answer. Next this player draws an ANSWER card (players draw ANSWER cards until there are no left). The next player, in the clockwise direction, draws the QUESTION card and reads the question. If two players have got the right answer, the cards are taken by the player who puts the cards on the table first and reads the answer aloud. If no one has the right answer the QUESTION card comes back at the bottom of the pile and the next player draws another QUESTION card. If any player has got a LUCKY CARD, s/he can use it if s/he can give the right answer. You can use the LUCKY CARD only once. If the player uses the LUCKY CARD but gives the wrong answer, s/he must draw another ANSWER card and puts the LUCKY CARD aside. At the beginning of the game the players have to decide whether they agree on only these answers which are consistent with objective truth (e.g. bananas are yellow, not red) or on any answers which are grammatically correct. For example: there is a question Are you a boy? and there is a boy who hasn t got the answer Yes, I am in his hand, but he has the answer: No, I m not. This answer is grammatically correct, but not consistent with the truth about the answering boy. The version of game with all answers grammatically correct, but not consistent with objective truth introduces the elements of surprise and fun to the game! Even 2 players can play Speaking Cards, however, the element of quick reactions is lost in such a situation. If you need you can also choose a number of cards with a structure you want to practise you don t have to use them all in one game. I hope you ll have a good time.
