Abstract

A game utilizing a deck of playing cards. The playing cards each have a point value in the upper left and lower right corner. In the center of each card is a word. Below the word on each card is the grammar designation usually used with the word. Below the grammar designation is a definition for the word. The card game Run on Sentences is unique because it is first a card game using both individual cards with words to create sentences as well as incorporating sentence structure, grammar, and word definition to aid in the challenge and education of sentence structure. The game is also unique in that it combines entertainment and education, and can be used both in the classroom to teach sentence structure, as well as a commercial game product for family fun.
