I developed this game to practise irregular verbs and help students learn which verbs go with which.
What to do
Download the printable PDF at the end of the page. Print it off and laminate it. There is a card reverse included in the PDF to print the cards double-sided.
How to play
Students are dealt 7 cards each to start, the rest are left in the centre of the table.
Just as with uno, a student must follow the top card with either a card from the same verb, or a card of the same colour. You could make it more challenging by getting students to define the verb, or use it in a sentence…
If a student can’t put a card down, they must pick one up.
If a student puts down a card from the wrong verb group, they must take it back and pick up two extra cards.
The +2, +4, change direction, change colour and miss-a-turn cards are all the same as the original version.
When the student has 1 card left, they have to shout ‘verbo!’ if they don’t before the next person takes a turn, they must pick up 4 cards.
Pick-up cards can accumulate, just as with Uno.
