How to Play The Printable Getting to Know You 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 getting to know you 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.

I LOVE YOUR RESOURCES! This one did not disappoint even when I used it in the middle of the school year for when 2 new students joined my social skills group. I had the groups pair off so that this way there was more collaboration and communication skills involved which made it even better. The kids are now requesting it because they love the creative prompts!

I love all the cards games made by you and this is no exception. I enjoy using The Getting To Know You Card game at the beginning of the year or whenever I have a new student on my caseload. I will definitely continue to use these cards when working with my students.
