I Simplified War
: Be the player to capture the most cards.
Setting Up the Game
Shuffle the cards.
Deal the cards between
Players place their cards in a stack face down.
Playing the Game
Players turn over the top card of their deck and
present it for "battle".
Cards rank from 2 (lowest) to Ace (highest).
Whoever turned over the higher valued card "captures" the opponent’s card and adds both cards to a new pile. Both players turn over the next card and play continues.
players present cards of equal value they both lay down 1 new card each and the player with the higher card wins, if both cards match again the process is repeated until someone wins.
Winning the Game
The player with the most cards in the new pile, when original decks are gone, is the winner.
II Checkers Modified
Play the same way just use 4 or more checkers.
Less is easier and results in a shorter game.
III Solitaire Variation.
Shuffle cards keep deck face down. Player turns over 1 card at a time. The
cards are placed
in 4 piles by suite. Hearts, Clubs, Spades, Diamonds.
When all cards are sorted by suit in 4 stacks each stack is sequenced from 2- ace.
IV Puzzles Simplified
Using square or rectangle puzzles
1-Put puzzle together on your own first.
2-Pick up one piece
at a time row by row.
3-As you pick up each piece in row 1 mark the back with a 1 until whole row is complete.
4-Put a rubber band around the row.
5-Do the same for each row untill each row is banded individually.
6- Store puzzle with each row banded.
7- When you are ready to
play with the person with language impairment do 1
row at a time. You could hand her or him the whole row to assemble or just 2
pieces that interlock at a time, building the puzzle 1 row at a time.
It is easiest to give them 2 pieces at a time. If they are up
challenge you can give them the whole
row. Keeping the puzzle stored this way
makes it quicker for you and easier for them to participate.
This can be played with pairs of cards from 10 to 100 depending on the level
of the person.
-Materials: deck of cards that is in pairs.
-Place the pairs of cards face down on the table in even rows.
-Take turns turning 2 to10 cards over at one time
-Depending on level of simplicity you want;
2 is difficult, the higher the number that you turn over at one time the easier it is.
As pairs are revealed they are removed and go to the one who revealed them. The one with the most pairs wins.
- To further simplify if this game 5-10 cards are turned over, remove
any pairs and leave pictures facing up that have no visible pairs. Take turns turning cards that are face down, up. As pairs are revealed continue to move them off the playing area and give them to the one who revealed it.
