This game makes guessing words easier for memory care residents by using dice to reveal letters. It was well-received by my residents.

We do foam letters and let the residents pick a letter out of a basket.

To make the game harder, use the number 6 as a “lose a turn” instead of assigning a letter to it.
Ruth 1st Oct 2019 Activity Director
For example: The word(s) to be guessed are “Carol Burnett”. The numbers 1-6 are assigned as follows:

C. A. R. O. L. B. U. R. N. E. T. T
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6

Use index cards to write the letter on. The numbers are written on the back. Lay the cards out and give a clue for the answer (famous female comedian). The first player rolls a die. You can either turn over every card with that number on it or just the next card with that number. The second player rolls the die. If a number is rolled that is not available the turn is over. Players may try to guess the answer as soon as their cards are turned over. The player who guesses the answer wins.
