Object of the game:
To get more pairs of rhyming cards than anyone else!
1 deck of cards with rhyming words
How to Play:
This game is played just like Fish, except you try to get words that rhyme!
1st: Every players gets 5 cards, and the rest of the cards go in a pile in the center, face down.
2nd: The youngest person playing
gets to go first. Everyone look at the cards they have, and then the first
player asks one of the other players if they have a word that rhymes with one
of the words they have in their hand.
(Player 1:" I wish for a word that rhymes with Fish (or cap or tell)!")
3rd: Two things can happen now:
If the player you asked doesn't have a matching rhyme card, you pick a card from the pile and it becomes the next person's turn. (Even if you pick a matching card, you have to wait until the next turn to put the pair down.)
If the player you asked does have a matching rhyme card, they give you their card. You put their card and your card down, face up, in front of you. You made a pair, and now you get to ask if someone has another card that rhymes with one of the cards you have left in your hand.
4th: If you run out of cards, you pick 5 more from the pile. The game ends when all of the matches are made. Whoever has the most pairs of rhyming cards wins!
To make your own set of cards:
Index cards work really well for
this game, and you can get them in all different colors.
Write one word on each card - make sure that every word has a match. There has to be an even number of cards. Don't use a marker that shows through on the other side!
