Business English Revision Rotating Board game Worksheet 2- Rules of the Game

Summary of the game

Players go round and round the board (anticlockwise), scoring 1 point for each complete circle. You move by the number of true sentences you make.


Detailed rules

You need one board for each group of two to four people, and one counter (for example a coin or an eraser) each. The board first needs to be photocopied onto two pieces of A4 paper and then sellotaped together.


When it is your turn, try to make as many true sentences as you can about the topic in the box your counter is on. After each sentence your partner(s) will tell you if the sentence is true or not. If your partners say one of your sentence(s) is false, stop speaking and move on one square for each correct sentence you said, for example:

Student A “You passed a test last week”

Student B “That’s right, one square”

A “You checked your homework this morning”

B “That’s correct, two squares”

A “You played tennis last week”

B “Sorry, that’s not right. I never play tennis and ‘played’ has a /d/ sound, not a /t/ sound”

Play now passes to the next person.


When you reach the “Special Challenge” square, stop there until you next turn (you can never go straight past). When your turn comes again, you partners can ask you any question about a classmate, for example “How old is she?” If your answer is correct, you can move back to the “Start” square, score one point for a complete circle, and continue the game. If your answer is wrong you have to stay on the “Special Challenge” square until your next turn.


Continue playing until your teacher tells you to stop. The person who has the most points (has been around the board most times) is the winner.
