Each player places a marker on the “HERE” space, then rolls the die. The player with the highest number is “UP”. The “UP” player, Player 1, lifts the “TEAM UP! Cover Card”, takes the top Question Card, and quickly puts the “TEAM UP! Cover Card” back on top of the pile so that the next Question Card is covered. The Question Card chosen is then placed on a table or desk so that all three players can easily read the card, making sure that no players can see the back of the card. Player 1 then works cooperatively with the person to his/her left, Player 2, to form a team for that first Question Card. While Players 1 and 2 work together, Player 3 also works on answering both questions on the Question Card. NOTE: Although not required, the teacher/parent can set a 1-minute, 2-minute or 3-minute time limit per Question Card, if desired/appropriate.
Once Players 1 and 2 have an answer for both the “Multiple Choice” question and “Task”, they say “Stop”, and Player 3 must stop working. Players 1 and 2 share their answers with Player 3, Player 3 then immediately shares his/her answers with Players 1 and 2. Once all players have shared their answers, the Question Card is turned over to reveal the correct answers.
Players 1 and 2 then move each one space on the game board for a correct “Multiple Choice” answer, two spaces for a correct “Task” answer, or three spaces for correct answers to both. Player 3 can “steal” one, two, or three moves if he/she provides a correct “Multiple Choice” and/or “Task” answer missed by Players 1 and 2.
Once the first turn has been completed, the Question Card is set aside. For the second turn, Player 2 is “UP” with Player 3 as his/her teammate, then for the third turn, Player 3 is “UP” with Player 1 as his/her teammate, and play continues as described above. The first player to reach “THERE” wins the game.
