Dark January evenings will transform into fun family game nights with the Miss Bernard is a Wild Card! game by All Things Equal. Inspired by Dan Gutman’s My Weird School book series this game gets kids — ages 6 to 10 — to hone their rhyming skills, practice good sportsmanship, burst out with laughter, and much more. The concept is that the newest weird teacher at Ella Mentry School, Miss Bernard, is encouraging students to complete a sentence about one of the other educators. Players compete to score the most points by collecting cards in five categories to complete a comical, (partially) rhyming sentence. After three rounds, the player with the most points wins.
The game’s directions are a quick read, but your kids may prefer watching game creator MC EZ Rulez, aka comedian Eric Schwartz, rap the how-to-play on YouTube: www.youtu
