This is played the same way as you would play subtraction bump game. On the blank cards, write the words that have 1, 2, and 3 syllables. Two partners will use one board and player 1 picks up a card from the pile. If the card is 1 syllable, put a pawn on the number 1. The next player picks up the card and if the word also has 1 syllable, the she or he 'bumps' the pawn and puts his/her pawn. You can lock yourself in the number by stacking up on top. The unifix cubes will work best for this game. Enjoy!
