Santa, Cookie, Elf, Candy, Snowman Game

This is a Christmas card game similar to the game "Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza". It's like Karuta but a bit of a level up.

Inspired: Christmas Bouzu Mekuri Card Game

Estimated time: 15-20 mins.

Divide the class into different groups with 3-4 members. One member of the group will act as the game master then the rest of the members will be the players. Each group will have one deck of card (with 36 cards)
The game master will say the words in the pattern - Santa, cookie, elf, candy, snowman - and at the same time flip a card from the deck. If the word and the picture doesn't match, the game master will say the next word (following the order: Santa, cookie, elf, candy, snowman) and flip a card. If the word matches the card, the players will race to grab the card. The first one to grab the card, gets every card that has been laid down.

But there's a bonus card: Grinch. If that card appears, the first one to grab it, gets all the cards that each player has already grabbed.

The player who has the most number of cards, wins.

After one round, the group can decide who wil be the next game master and so on...

      I LOVE Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza, so I actually found pictures of the Christmas version online and made my own with meishi card paper (I might be the only person to use it lol). My special needs class loved it. I put the Japanese meaning under the words too and included the three bonus cards from the real game - reindeer, drums, and silent night. I introduced those in the second round of the game, and they caught on fast. It was fun even for me to play along! Maybe I should upload my file too?

      Cool idea! I was thinking of just doing Karuta but this seems like a fresh spin. Thanks for sharing.
