Colours & Shapes

EQ2IQ is organized using colours, shapes and emotional vocabulary. Children should understand the colours and shapes first. Colour and shape cards have been provided to teach this. Feel free to keep the shape cards face up on the table during game play.


10 Levels of Cards

There are 10 levels of cards in the deck based on how many shapes are on the card. For example, level 1 cards have 1 shape and level 10 cards have 10 shapes.


During all EQ2IQ games, the parent or educator can select the level of difficulty, based on child's age or progress, by only using the appropriate level of cards. For example, at the most basic entry level, only the cards with 1 shape on them would be used (see below):
