How to Play
1. Blitz cards should be placed face down in a single stack.
2. Decide which team will start the activity.
3. Set a timer for 1 minute (optional). The team that is starting will choose 1 member from the team to draw a card. This person will be the “clue giver.” The other team members will be the “guessers.”
4. The “clue giver” will be the only person on the team to view the terms on the cards.
5. The “clue giver” will describe the term at the top of the card WITHOUT saying any of the 3 words listed below the key term. A member of the other team is allowed to look at the card to be sure the “clue giver” does not say any of the forbidden words listed. The “clue giver” cannot use sound effects, gestures, or parts of the term on the card as well.
6. Each time the team correctly identifies a term 1 point is earned and the “clue giver” should draw another card. If the “clue giver” says one of the forbidden words, the point for the card goes to the other team. Continue this process until time runs out.
7. At the end of the turn, count up the number of cards that were correctly identified. This is the number of points the team receives for the round. (ex. 4 terms identified = 4 points)
8. Switch turns and follow directions 4-8 for the other team.
The team with the most points after all cards have been used is the winner.
