how to play

This is a board game for 2-4 players (or teams). Students take turns flipping a coin and moving along a path.

  • Decide who starts and who comes next.
  • Take a turn by flipping a coin (heads = move 1 space; tails = move 2 spaces).
  • You have 10 seconds to say a word related to food and eating that begins with that letter of the square you land on - or you must go back two spaces. For example, D for dinner. Let's eat dinner! Each word can be used once. If you say a word that has been used by someone else, you miss a turn.
  • If your answer is correct, don't move. If your answer is wrong, move back one space.
  • The winner is the first player to reach the finish.
