How to Play The Digital CBT Connect Game

Taking turns, players/teams choose a number based on the spot they would like to place their pawn. Then answer the corresponding CBT question/prompt. Move game pawn to cover the number just answered. Players continue to take turns answering questions/prompts and moving their pawn pieces until the first player/team has completed a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line of either 4 or 5 in a row.

How to Play The Printable CBT Card Game

In the spirit of other popular shedding-type card games, the player to get rid of all their cards first by wins. Players try to “match” the top card in the discard pile, by either laying down the same number, color (or shape, if using the black & white set), or type of action card. If the card contains a CBT question or prompt, that player shares their response. The player may choose to decline responding by using 1 of their 2 Pass Tickets. Actions cards add fun twists and turns to the game. Actions include:

  •  TAKE 3: The next person in line must take 3 cards before taking their turn.
  • ROTATE RIGHT / ROTATE LEFT: All players pass on, or “rotate,” their cards to either the left or right, so that everyone exchanges hands with each other.
  • GO AGAIN: Player gets to “go again,” gaining an additional turn.
  • FREE!: Player who discards a FREE card is “free” to choose a new color (or shape) for the discard pile and then discard an additional card based on the color (or shape) they changed it to.
  • FREE + SPY!: Player who discards a FREE+SPY card can spy on one player by peeking at their cards and then is “free” to choose a new color (or shape) for the discard pile and then discard an additional card based on the color (or shape) they changed it to.

All of my students love UNO, so these UNO-like card games have been a gold-mine of a find for me! Thank you so much! I’ve used the CBT deck in individual sessions and group therapy sessions. I’ve also used the cards individually to encourage conversation about how thoughts, feelings and actions are connected.

I teach for a virtual school and used this as group activity during a live class. I pulled up Google Drive and screen shared so they could see. It was a lot of fun and I will continue to use frequently.

The questions or responses on the cards are great and definitely in line with CBT. The kids love playing UNO so this was something that could hold their attention.

Easy to understand! I use it in therapy with my clients to help understand how our negative thoughts can hurt us. And what a better way than creating a game with it to make it fun!
