Dialect & Local Color HYBRID.

Instructions.
When it is your group's turn, one person will roll the dice. You will note the space you can advance to, but will not move forward just yet. You must look at the space, and pick a card from the pile that it indicates. Only if your group get this question correctly will you be able to actually move onto that space. Otherwise, you are to remain in your previous space. The team who gets around the board first is the winner.

When you receive a charade or pictionary question, the first step is for you to figure out what the answer is, and then portray that to your teammates in the respective methods for them to guess. So if you have the wrong answer, the chances of your team getting the answer will be minimal. No student can continually be the representative, everyone must go around to make sure everyone gets involved. That is why it is important that everyone listens to the presentation and knows the information.
