Taboo Game vol. 2

Taboo Game vol. 2

UPDATED: New for September 2017 - Vol. 2 of my popular Taboo game. 125 brand new cards and brand new clues. I have used it as a starter, a plenary and as a reward to help pupils to work on their use of spoken language, The students love this game and really get into it! I have also used this in both debate club and public speaking training. This can be adapted to a particular subject (or topic) or you can add some more words to make it longer (I have added a blank template at the end). If you like the game then leave me a nice review!
