Spooky Spooky Halloween Card Game by Maple Leaf Publishing. Hey guys, it’s me. Marty Moose! In this tutorial video I will show you how to use these cards in your class. The main game is based on a traditional Japanese card game called Daifugo However, as you will see in this video, you can use these cards to play many other games. As well as any traditional card game. Are you ready to get started? Let’s go! Daifugo The object of this game is to be the first player to use up all your cards. I could explain the rules to you but it might just be easier to watch us play. Anyways, let’s start by dealing out all the cards to the players. Next, you have to decide who will go first. You can either choose the player to your left or allow the children to decide by playing rock, pape, scissors. It’s up to you. Once, the player has been picked He or she can begin by laying down a card. It’s always best to start with a small card. The next player will lay down a card with a larger number. Good! A bat is scarier than a spider. A bat is scarier than a spider, good. Pass. You continue playing until nobody can lay down a card. The last player that lays down a card can begin the next round. A skeleton is scarier than a vampire. Pass! Pass. Pass. The Marty Moose card is wild and it can be any card in the game. Therefore, it is always the strongest. Wild! Black cat. A scarecrow is scarier than a black cat. A mummy is scarier than a scarecrow. Pass! Players can pass anytime. Even if the player has cards that could be played. …scarier than a mummy. Pass. Pass. A monster is scarier than a skeleton. If the leader starts with a pair, only pairs may be played on top of it. If three of a kind is lead, only three of a kind can be played. Scarecrows! Pirates are scarier. Pass. Pass. There’s two, so ghosts. Ghosts are scarier. Pass. As for language, for very young children they can simply say the name of the character when playing their cards. For children that are able, they should say a something is scarier. or A something is scarier than a something. If multiple cards are played, they can say somethings are scarier than somethings. Teachers should feel free to make the game as easy or as difficult as they like depending on the abilities of the kids. Concentration Simply remove two colors and the wild cards and have yourself a game of concentration. It’s a mummy. It’s a mummy. OK, one more time. One more time. What is it?

Simply deal out all the cards and have all the children that have sevens put them in the middle. …we can put the six or eight, right? and you can use the wild. Children take turns putting down their cards that follow the order. If they don’t have a card that follows the order, they can pass. They can also use the wild card in place of any cards they don’t have. Providing that they have the next card that follows the sequence. Okay, wild. And you have to have the…what about the five?
