The aim of the game is to collect as many sets (foursomes)
as possible.

For example, in “talking about clothes” there are 4 cards of shirts, four cards of pants, etc.

Shuffle the cards and deal 4 cards to each player.

The rest of the cards are left, face down, as a “deck”.

The first player asks for a specific name of series:

“Do you have shirts?”

If yes, the player asks for the card needed.

“Do you have a blue shirt?”

If yes, the player receives the card and has another turn.

If no, the player takes a card from the deck.

When a player collects a set of four cards (foursome), he/she puts
it aside.

The winner is the player with the most foursomes.

The grammar games contain matching pairs of questions and answers:

For example: Present Simple

Does he often walk his cat?
No, he doesn’t walk his cat at all.
This format allows you to use the games in different ways. Here are some suggestions for setting instructional goals, the basic game instructions  and creative ideas for tailoring the way you play the games.

First, set your targets
In order to focus on the similarities and differences between the tenses, you can either:

  • use a single, specific tense card sets: Present Simple, or Present  Continuous / Progressive, etc.

or,

  • mix cards from different tenses: Present Simple vs Past Simple, Present Continuous / Progressive vs Past Continuous / Progressive.

In addition, you can divide the cards between questions and answers, and

  • use just the question cards to generate conversations.
  • read the question cards to make students formulate the answers.
  • read the answer cards to make students formulate the questions.

Then, set your goal
Are the students formulating answers or questions?

  1. Separate the question and answer cards into two decks.
  2. Divide the students into two groups, one receiving the answer cards and one receiving the question cards.
  3. If formulating answers, the student group with the question cards read the question, and the students with the answer cards try to find the correct answer.
  4. If formulating questions, the student group with the answer cards read the answer, and the students with the question cards try to find the correct question.
  5. If the students are correct, they take the matching card.
  6. Game continues until all cards are matched.

*Alternative instructions: Student groups can create an original answer or question of their own, based on the same pattern.

Basic Game Instructions

Memory / Concentration game:

  1. Shuffle the cards and lay them all out on the table in rows, face down.
  2. The first player selects two cards, turns them over, and reads them aloud.
  3. If the two cards match (question and answer / same picture), then that player wins the pair and sets them aside.
  4. The first player then gets another turn, and may continue to play until no matching cards are turned over.
  5. If the cards do not match, they are turned back over, face down, and the next player takes a turn.
  6. Game continues until all the cards have been taken.
  7. The winner is the player with the most pairs.

The aim of the game is to collect as many sets (foursomes) as possible.
