of the Blind present UNO® Braille!
Objective: Create a 3x3 grid that has one matching item in every direction.
Remove one card from the deck and place it in the middle of the table. This card is the center square of the grid and can never be moved. The challenge is to see how quickly you can create a 3x3 grid that has one item matching (character, item or colored clothing) in every direction, including diagonally.
If a friend also has a Common Threads deck, race to see who can finish their grid first!
Players: 2 or more
Objective: Be the first player to climb to the top of the “cactus.”
Take the 7 cactus cards out of the deck and arrange them in a single column. This will form the trunk of the cactus that your characters must climb. All players pick a 'climber' card at random from the deck. Place them at either side of the tree, below the first cactus card.
Turn a card over from the deck. The first player to yell out a match (item or colored clothes) between that card and the cactus card they are trying to climb to, moves up the cactus. (For example: to progress from cactus 2 to cactus 3, a player would need to find the match between cactus 3 and the card turned over from the deck.)
Here's the twist...the first player to find the match they need can choose to either move one place UP or move another player’s climber one place DOWN.
The first player to climb to the top of the cactus wins!
