Conductor: An Old Maid Card Game for Instruments of the Orchestra

Conductor: An Old Maid Card Game for Instruments of the Orchestra
Product Description
This is a great game for centers or small group time. It is played exactly like Old Maid, but instead, don't get stuck holding the Conductor card!

A pair includes one card picturing the instrument, and one card with the instrument name (no picture).

How to play: Deal out all the cards. Each player examines their hand and discards any pairs they have. Once the initial pairs are discarded the dealer begins by offering their cards spread face down to the player to their left. That player selects a card from the dealers hand without seeing it, and adds it to their own hand. If it makes a pair in their hand they discard the pair. The player who just took a card then offers their hand to the next player to the left, and so on.

If you paired up and discarded all of your cards you are safe and are no longer in the game. Eventually all cards will be discarded with the exception of the Conductor. The holder of this card loses.

You can also use this as a flashcard set.
