Game Instructions:”Karuta” is a traditional card game played in Japan during New Year. When the Reader calls out a letter, look for a corresponding picture card with that letter. If you find it, touch the picture card and say “Yes”. Continue until all picture cards have been claimed. The person with the most cards at the end is the winner. By the way, there is a theory that the name “karuta” is derived from the word “carta” which means “card” in Portuguese.
