Game having multiple game activities

Image Number 16 for United States Patent #6279909.

A game kit (20) includes a game playing surface (22) marked with a plurality of indicia (42), (44), (46), (48), and (50). The game kit also includes a plurality of markers (26a-26d) for positioning on indicia of the playing surface. A first deck of cards (24a) including a plurality of cards (56) is also included. Each card bearing instructions (64) for a player to carry out an activity. The activity instructions of the cards in the first deck each being associated with a first core or cluster of human competencies selected from the group of factual knowledge competencies, audio/video performance competencies, two and/or three-dimensional graphic competencies, and spelling/vocabulary competencies. The plurality of cards contained in the first deck including at least a first subset of cards directed to a first activity type associated with the first core or cluster of competency(s) and a second subset of cards directed to a second activity type, distinct from the first activity type, associated with the first core or cluster of competency(s). The game also includes a second deck of cards having a plurality of cards bearing instructions for a player to carry out an activity. The second deck of cards contains cards directed to activities associated with a second core or cluster of human competency(s) different at least in part from the first core or cluster of competencies associated with the first deck.
