Dr. Seuss ABC Game TM
In Dr. Seuss’s ABC Game, children race through the alphabet collecting fun Dr. Seuss characters as they go.
To collect the most Picture Cards.
4 Playing Pieces
52 Picture Cards
The game ends when the last player reaches Finish. Players count the number of Picture Cards they’ve collected-the Player with the most Picture Cards wins the game! If there is a tie, the first player to reach the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz wins the game.
When players are setting up the game, place the cards with the text-side down. After landing on a letter space, players look at the image-only side of the Picture Cards and try to find the matching card (Picture Cards with BIG letters on BIG letter spaces, Picture Cards with little letters on little letter spaces). If players pick a card that doesn’t begin with the BIG or little letter that they landed on, the card is placed text-side down and play passes to left.
Dr. Seuss’s ABC Game helps children learn the alphabet, distinguish between upper and lower case letters and learn letter sounds. When children have mastered these skills, use the following variation to further challenge them:
When a Player lands on a letter space and the corresponding Picture Card has already been collected by another player, the Player may challenge the person who has the card to a Word War.
Using a pencil and paper, each Player secretly writes one word that begins with the same letter as the one occupied by the challenging player’s playing piece. The player who writes the word with the most letters wins that Picture Card. If both players write a word with an equal number of letters, the Picture Card stays with its current owner.
