This game keeps students on their toes as they race to find the matching image between cards. The game provides a competitive environment to reinforce vocabulary. This Dobble is St. Patrick's Day themed and includes 31 vocabulary terms. It could make a great station or activity during a St. Patrick's Day party.
Dobble can be played in multiple ways. My favorite method is dealing the cards out to each player so that every player has the same number of cards. One card needs to remain in the middle face down. On the count of three, the middle card is revealed and each player quickly flips the top card from their own pile. Each player is examining their card and the middle card for the matching image (there is ALWAYS a matching image between cards). The first player to correctly identify the matching image discards their card onto the top of the middle card, making this the new card to match. The players who failed to identify the match first, must now put that card at the bottom of their pile. Players count to three again and reveal the next card in their pile. Play continues until one player wins by getting rid of all of their cards.
The only prep required with this download is that the cards be cut apart. If you plan to reuse the cards, I suggest laminated them in order to make them last longer.
