In this bilingual card game, you will learn numbers, colors, and phrases in the Nordic language of your choice - or both. A fun addition to your language-learning journey, or a perfect way to learn together with friends and family for a trip to Scandinavia! This fast-paced, easy-to-learn game is perfect for total beginners and includes a little something for more advanced learners, too.
Twisty Tealz Danish & Faroese version includes phrases transliterated into Younger Futhark runes, a writing system that was used to write Old Norse during the Viking Age.
The object of the game is to be the first to have zero cards in your hand and declare "Nul(l) Kort!"
Why these languages?
Danish and Faroese descended from Old East Norse and Old West Norse respectively, dialects of the language of vikings and fabled shieldmaidens. Today, Danish is spoken by around 5.5 million people, while Faroese is spoken by about 75,000. Danish is an official language of Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland, and is studied from elementary school in Iceland. Faroese is closely related to Icelandic and Old Norse, and a third of Faroese speakers live in Denmark.
To boot, Denmark ranks in the top 3 countries in the world for freedom of the press, quality of life, and places to live for women and children; while the Faroe Islands is home to one of the oldest parliament sites in the world still in use today - dating to the 9th century!
Includes 107 playable cards, a rule card, and pronunciation guides.
Includes rule card in English (and French coming soon), plus digital copy of rules.
Game can take up to 6 players, though for ideal language-learning purposes we recommend 2-5.
