This game offers a unique and fun opportunity to introduce and reinforce what can sometimes be a problematic subject – Italian terms used in music.
There are 3 variations, getting progressively more difficult.
English equivalents to the Italian are listed on the call cards with the Italian term.
Playing this game is excellent preparation for the Elementary Theory Exams.
I have used this game for years with students preparing for exams. It is a unique alternative to flashcards and worksheets and offers a valuable opportunity to practice.

The leader places blank cards in the middle and gives each player a board. If the players are just learning the musical concept of the game, the leader places the printed cards where all the players can see them. He then calls each card, one by one, as in a bingo game. The players put blank cover cards over the matching terms on their boards.
As the game becomes easier for the players, the leader may decide to hold the printed cards in his hand, thus increasing the degree of difficulty.
Easy version: Showing the card, the leader calls out the term in Italian, giving its meaning in English. Players repeat the Italian and find the term on their boards.
Harder version: NOT showing the card, the leader reads out the Italian. The players give the English equivalent and then find the term on their boards.
Hardest version: NOT showing the card, the leader says the Italian term in English. The players, in turn, give the Italian equivalent and find the term on their boards.
