Includes 4 of my French vocabulary games - Jeu des sept Familles.
The object of the game is to collect a full family - 6 cards. The player with the most families at the end is the winner.
Player 1 asks a player of his/her choice for a card belonging to a specific family. In order to make the request, the player must already have at least 1 card belonging to that family. “Dans la famille (les fruits), je cherche (specific card).” If that player has the card, he/she hands it over. Player 1 continues asking for cards until he/she does not get what is requested, at which time he/she draws a card from the pile. Player 2 then takes his/her turn. Once a family is collected, it is laid on the table in front of that player. When the draw pile is exhausted, play continues without drawing, until all families are formed.
