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.
