Are you looking for a fun way to engage the family at the Shabbos table? We've done all the work for you. All you need to do is print and cut out our Parshas Teruma Mishkan Game, and you will be set for a fun and educational time with the family!!
Game Objective: To play all of your "Mishkan" cards until you have no cards remaining in your hand. Players will get to learn and review the parts of the Mishkan in this week's Torah portion, and the materials it is made of.
Print and cut out game cards. Colored printing would work best for this game.
Mix the game cards well.
Hand each player five cards to hold in their hand without showing others.
Place the rest of the cards in a pile, faced down, for players to draw during the game.
Draw one card from the pile and turn it facing upward on the table. This will be the play pile.
Begin with the youngest, then move clockwise.
The player shall look at the card on the table, examine their own stack of cards and find ONE card that can be put down on the pile. Player can choose one of three ways to put down a card during his turn:
An identical card can be placed on the pile. Ex. if it's a menorah card, a menorah card can be placed on the pile, ending the player's turn.
A card that is related to the card on the pile, (as shown on the bottom of that card) can be played, ending the turn. Ex. The Shulchan can be placed on top of the wood, gold, poles, or rings card, being that shulchan is connected with all of those materials, as they are shown on the bottom of the shulchan card.
A donation card (acts as a joker). The player can put down the donation card and then an additional card from their hand pile.
If the player does not have anything to put down, he/she must draw a card from the pile.
The first player to finish his/her pile of cards is the winner!
