Product Description
This is a very funny way how to revise vocabulary of any kind. Students of any age simply love it. Either two students compete one against the other or one pair against the other one. There is a pile of cards in front of the players, who take turns in picking cards from it (one card per round). The players cannot see what is written on the card before they pick it. There are various categories written on the cards, easy (colours, pets…) or difficult ones (diseases, types of trees…). The problem is that a player must say how many words related to the category he will be able to name in 30-second limit even before he picks a card. Sometimes he might be too careful and say a low number and then he picks an easy category, or, vice versa he says a high number and then he is not able to name so many words within the time limit. The rival of the player is supposed to check the time limit and count the words. If the player accomplishes the task successfully, he is given the points according to the number he said before picking and seeing the card (e.g. he said 6, he picked the card with PETS written on it, he named 6 pets within 30 seconds, so he is given 6 points). If the player failed in doing so, he gains nothing. The other player continues under the same conditions (it does not make any difference whether his rival gained some points or not). At the end of the game, players count their points and the one with higher score is the winner. Have fun :)
