European Day of Languages 2018 Board Game

A fantastic board game (think along the lines of Cranium) to celebrate European Day of Languages. Designed to try to appeal to every pupil in the classroom, there are both skill tasks and question cards with pupils being given the opportunity to write and form letters using unknown alphabets, say words in both new and familiar languages and answer general knowledge questions.

- Pupils play in small groups of 2-6 players.
- Place all the question and skill cards face down in the correct place on the board.
- Pupils choose a star to start on.
- Roll the dice, the pupil with the highest number starts.
- Pupils take it in turns to roll the dice and move clockwise around the board.
- If a pupil lands on “Q”, another player picks up the “Q” card and asks them the question. If the pupil answers the question correctly they get to keep the card.
- If a pupil lands on “S” they pick up the “S” card and complete the skill. If the pupil completes the skill they get to keep the card.
- If a pupil lands on the dice they get to roll again.
- There is no finish position. The game continues until all the cards have been won or time is up and the person with the most cards wins.
