Natural disaster is a card game that gives players many opportunities to have fun while learning about natural disasters and disaster management.


Memory game – Put all the cards face down with those having the same color together. After that the first player takes one card from the situation cards, then one from the action cards. If they match, the player gets the cards and has another chance to find matching cards, but if they don’t match, the player has to put back the cards in the original place.The player who gets the most number of cards is the winner.

A game based on a Japanese game ‘karuta’ – One person holds the situation cards. The action cards are placed face up. The person holding the situation cards reads the situation, and the players have to touch the action card that matches the situation as fast as they can. The fastest player gets the card. If the player makes a mistake, he or she cannot join the next turn.

Old Maid – make an extra card (joker) in addition to the cards. Divide cards. The first player takes one card from the player on his/her left side. If they match, the player reads and puts cards away. Players continue until they have matched all cards. The player who gets the joker card loses and can choose between ‘truth’ or ‘order’. Choosing ‘truth’ means he/she has to answer ‘truthfully’ questions that other players may ask; choosing ‘order’ means other players can ask him/her to do something.
