Worksheet 2- Rules of the Game 
 
Summary of the game 
Players go round and round the board (anticlockwise), scoring one point for each 
complete circle. You move by the number of true sentences you make. 
 
Detailed rules 
You need one board for each group of two to four people, and one counter (for example a 
coin or an eraser) each.   
 
When it is your turn, try to make as many true sentences as you can about the topic in 
the box your counter is on. After each sentence your partner(s) will tell you if the 
sentence is true or not. If your partners say one of your sentence(s) is false, stop 
speaking and move on one square for each correct sentence you said, for example: 
Student A “To get to your office go out of this door” 
Student B “That’s right, one square” 
A “Then turn left” 
B “That’s correct, two squares” 
A “Then go up to the 7

th

 floor” 

B “Sorry, that’s not right. My office is on the 8

th

 floor. You can move 2 squares. Now it’s 

my turn” 
 
Play now passes to the next person. 
 
When you reach the “Special Challenge” square, stop there until you next turn (you can 
never go straight past). When your turn comes again, you partners can ask you any 
question about a classmate, for example “How old is she?” If your answer is correct, you 
can move back to the “Start” square, score one point for a complete circle, and continue 
the game. If your answer is wrong you have to stay on the “Special Challenge” square 
until your next turn. 
 
Continue playing until your teacher tells you to stop. The person who has the most 
points (has been around the board most times) is the winner.
