This is a fun, competitive, educational vocabulary game based on sound cues and definitions. The degree of difficulty of each word is designated by a color code (green/orange/red). The player reads the definition and guesses the word answer. The last definition has the “Beginning sounds” at the END of the word and a player has the OPTION to play this word or not (for this word only, a point is deducted for an incorrect answer)
✔ 500 cards with 2000 definitions
✔ 3 levels of difficulty allow for inclusion of younger players as well as
accommodating for differences in adult language proficiency
✔ Based on “beginning sounds”, not spelling (letters)
✔ Choice of single player or 2 or more players/groups
WHAT MAKES OPTIONARY UNIQUE?
In the English language we often tend to focus on the spelling of words. BUT, meaning and pronunciation are the critical skills. For language lovers at all levels there is always pleasure and satisfaction involved in learning new vocabulary (hence the great appeal of crossword puzzles). This game is different in that it focuses on sounds and definition rather than spelling. This new game format allows us to learn while having fun.
