Verbs - Present, Past and Past Participle

(0)
Game (2-6 players) The aim of the game is to get the most sets of verbs. (A set consists of the present, past and past participle of one verb.) Mix the cards. Each player is dealt 9 cards and the remaining cards are placed face down in a pile in the middle of the table. The top card is turned face up and placed beside the pile on the table. Players look at their cards. If they have a set, they place that on the table. (This counts as 1 point) The player(s) then draw cards to make up 9 cards in their hands. The person on the left of the dealer starts, he/she can either pick the card that is turned over or take the top card. He/She then has to discard, so that he he/she always has 9 cards. If the player can make a set of 3 cards, he places the set on the table.(As soon as a player thinks he/she has a set, it is suggested that players show their sets to other players to ensure that the set has the correct verbs.) He/she must then draw cards from the pile to maintain 9 in his/her hand. Continue play until the pack on the table has been used. Then turn the pack over and start using the cards again. When all cards have been used from the table, players then take turns to select an unseen card from the player on their left. This continues until all sets of verbs has been made. The winner is the player with the most points or sets.
