The Starting card (the time of midnight/midday is shown) is placed on the table. The other cards are shuffled and dealt out evenly amongst the players. The game is played by players in turn placing their cards so that the time shown on a card is the same as the written word on the next. The winner is the player who finishes his/her cards first. Two different paths are possible, according to difficulty. The teacher's booklet has suggestions on various other ways to play with the cards.
