Double Duel Homophone Game

Learning and practicing homophones is often challenging.  Learning Resources offers a fun game, called Double Duel, that encourages children to practice their homophones!  It is a high-speed homophone game that requires active listening and vocabulary skills.

The Double Duel game engages players with four buzzers that each make a different sound: boxing bell, doorbell, honk honk, and boing.  In addition to the four buzzers, the game also includes 200 color-coded cards (level 1 = purple, level 2 = red).

Here’s how to play:  

  1. Each player presses a buzzer, one at a time, so all players know the buzzer sounds
  2. Place the box of cards in the middle of the play area so all players can reach
  3. Choose a player to read first.  Draw a card and read both clues to other player(s).  All players, except the reader, can buzz in.
    • Example: “Q: It’s a color.  The wind did this. A: Blue/Blew”
  4. The first player to buzz in and answer correctly keeps the card.  If the first player is incorrect, other players buzz in again for a chance to answer
  5. If not one answers correctly, the card goes to the back of the box
  6. The first player to 10 cards wins
