how to play

Kids play in pairs or in teams. In this game, there is one person asking questions (Player Q) and the other person answering questions (Player A).

  • Decide who will be Player Q and Player A.
  • Player Q says a grid number, and asks, for example, 4A. What's this? What colour is it?
  • Player A has to find the right box, then answer, for example, 4A. This is a tie. It is green.
  • Each correct answer gains one point. In the next round players change roles for further practice.
  • The player with the most points at the end is the winner.
