The Matching Game

Instructions:

  Spread all of the cards face up on a table.  One person read the list one sentence
at a time.  Two to five players may play at once.  The person reading the list
reads the first sentence "put the bee on the tree".  The first player has the chance
to follow directions,  if they are correct, they keep the bee and tree cards.  If they
are incorrect, the reader may read the sentence again for the next player.  If that
player is correct, they may keep the cards.  When the player is correct for the
second time, the turn automatically goes to the next player.  The game keeps going
until all of the cards are gone.  Whoever has the most cards is the winner.
