A pack of cards are dealt among players evenly, including the Jokers. The players have to bid for a topic called out by the teacher. The highest bidder wins. All cards are secret bids, but the bidding process reveals who is the winner when the teacher calls ‘bid’.
The winner then has to talk about the bidded topic for a time of 20 secs.
I’ve tried this game with several groups of students who liked to play cards a great deal. Worked well.
