Product Description
Here are 225 cards for a game called 30 seconds.
Each card contains 5 subjects. The players have to describe as many of these subjects as possible within 30 seconds.
Subjects include: people, countries, movies, cities, brands etc.
You can play this game with teams or in pairs.

*How to play this game*
One player draws a card and starts reading the five subjects to themselves. The timer starts counting down from 30 seconds.
The player must now describe as many of the subjects as possible to his teammates. The order doesn't matter (ie. you don't have to start with the first word on the card). The player is not allowed to say any of the words on the card. The teammates now have to guess the subject words.
When the 30 seconds are over the team gets a point for every guessed subject. Then it's the next team's turn.

General game rules are the same.
One alternative when playing in pairs is saying that each pair has to try to get as many points as possible. Here the players take turns guessing and describing. Each pair gets the same number of cards, the pair with the most points wins.

You can also just play it for fun.

This game will help improve fluency and vocabulary. You can use it in many different settings and for different periods of time.
During a long class you can have a change of pace and have one student do one card for the rest of the class to guess.

The subjects on the cards may be a little bit Europe-oriented, so I left it as a Word-document so you can alter the cards if you want.
Due to the level of trivia-knowledge in this game, I would recommend it for ages 14+.

I printed these cards as labels and put them on bigger cardboard cards.

Have fun!

P.s. if there is enough demand for this product, I will make expansion packs.
