How to use the game

The game may be played with any number of students, but six is the minimum to ensure sufficient interaction.

Copy one task card and a set of corresponding picture card for each student in the class. Give each student a task card. Shuffle the picture cards and distribute them randomly, five to each student, so that no student gets the picture cards which correspond to his/her task card.

The object of the game is to collect the items necessary for the task allotted.

To do this, students should move around the class, offering items in exchange for others. Students may only exchange items – they may not give them away. They may have to make intermediate transaction in order to get the item they really want.
