Save Me a Seat Free Idioms Game

Game Instructions

The object of the game is to get the most matches. A match is an idiom on one card/space and its meaning on a different card/space. The meanings are in red font and the idioms are typed in black with accompanying pictures. 

  1. The youngest player goes first. 
  2. On a turn, a player deletes 2 cards to see what is underneath. If the definition and idiom match, the player earns a point. The player then takes another turn, by deleting two cards. The player continues until the player misses. 
  3. When there is a miss, click the undo arrow twice to place the cards back on the gameboard. That player's turn ends - and all players try to remember which cards were turned over for future matches.
  4. The game continues until all cards have been matched.
  5. The winner is the player with the most matches.
