Print 1 or 2 copies of the 60 Jack-O-Lantern dominoes (Pumkinoes) cards. Place all of the Pumpkinoes in a pile face down. Players take turns picking one Pumpkino from this draw pile. The first player to draw a double face Pumpkino lays it face up in the middle of the table. Double faced Pumpkinoes are the only cards that can be played on all four sides. All other Pumpkinoes can only be played end-to-end. Play continues to the right. If a player doesn’t have any Pumpkinoes, one must be picked from the draw pile, and played if possible. If it cannot be played, it is the next player’s turn. Match the Jack-O-Lantern faces end-to-end. Double faces can be used to form a ‘T’ intersection by centering these on a matching Jack-O-Lantern face. Play can continue on either end and the middle of the double face. The game continues until all Pumpkinoes have been drawn. After that time, the first player to get rid of all their Pumpkinoes wins. But watch out for the sneaky pumpkin pyramid cards!
For added language practice, have a student describe their Jack-O-Lantern faces before playing that Pumpkino.
