The roman alphabet letters and corresponding syllabic symbol for one sound are hidden in each drawing. The exercises demonstrate that changing the writing system does not change the pronunciation, meaning, or dialect of the word.

This card game was developed to help Inuit language learners practice speaking. Players will be both asking each other questions and answering using the appropriate vocabulary and word endings in the Inuit language.
The goal of the game is for each player to get complete sets of the three categories. The player with the most sets wins the game.
Each category has four items in four different colors. Included in the package is an instruction manual that explains the rules of the game, with lots of examples, pictures and sample questions for the players to refer to.
Because the cards do not have words on them, the game can be played in any dialect of the Inuit language; the basic language patterns described in the instruction booklet being the same throughout the Inuit language. (The instructions are written in Nattilingmiutut but can be adapted to any dialect.)
Each package includes 48 playing cards, sample question cards, and an instruction booklet.
