All cards are placed on a smooth surface with the image facing up and shuffled.
Then the cards are distributed in the middle (on a table or on the floor) with the face down and so that they do not overlap.
The youngest player starts and turns over any 2 cards. The player reads out what is written on the two cards. If the player has found a pair, he/she puts the pair to himself/herself and may turn over 2 more cards. He/she reads out again what he/she has revealed. If the cards do not match, he/she turns the cards over in their original place and it is the next player's turn.
The game is played clockwise.
The player with the most pairs wins the round.
Game variation 2
This variant is well suited for remedial teaching or if players with English language skills are playing.
For each verb, whether German or English, a suitable noun must now be found with which the player forms a sentence.
The player can tell if he/she has found the right noun by the letter and number code (E4, D12, etc.) on each card.
