Game 2 - Intermediate

Back to Overview >

1. Place All Cards Image Up

After picking the card levels to use, shuffle and lay out all cards image side up. The number of cards depends on the number of players. We recommend:

  • 2 players = 10 cards

  • 3 players = 12 cards

  • 4 players = 16 cards

2. Pick a Card & Discuss the Image

The first player, just like game 1, picks a card and answers the following questions:

  1. What do you see?

  2. What do you think?

3. Flip the Card

The first player then flips the card, revealing the emotion and shape, then answers the following questions:

  1. When do you feel (emotion on card)?

  2. What colour shapes and how many do you see?


4. All Players Repeat

Each player takes turns, picking any card they want and then answering the same questions for discussion.


5. Continue Until All Cards Are Flipped


6. Parent / Educator Asks Learning Questions

Now all the cards are flipped over, the parent or educator takes turns asking each child any combination of the following questions (choose based upon difficulty):

  • "How many (shape) do you see?"

  • "How many (shape) of (colour) do you see?"

  • If we added all the (shape/color) how many would we have?


  • "How many squares do you see?"

  • "How many yellow shapes do you see?"

  • "How many yellow stars do you see?"

  • "If we added all the squares and circles how many would we have?"

  • "If we added all the green and yellow shapes together how many would we have?"

As seen in this example, only level 2 cards have been used. Try game 3 as a variant to increase the level of difficulty.
