How to Play The Digital School Success Connect Game

Taking turns, players/teams choose a number based on the spot they would like to place their pawn. Then answer the corresponding school success 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 School Success 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 question or prompt about ways to be successful at school, that player shares their response. The player may choose to decline to respond by using 1 of their 2 Pass Tickets. Action 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.
