A card game for nouns, verbs and adjectives.
Each player is dealt 7 cards and the remaining cards are placed face down in the middle of the group. This forms the draw pile. Players turn over the top card of that pile and place it face up to form the discard pile.
When it’s your turn place a card on the discard pile. Your card must have either the same color or same part of speech ie. verb, noun or adjective, or you may place a wild card down and change the color.
Players must follow the directions of cards such as draw 2, reverse or skip.
There are spare cards included in the download for you to add your own words.
If you need more cards to vary the game, please download set 2 and set 3.
