Game Idea: Bisaya to English Translation

Games make a gathering extra fun and memorable. And living in a progressive city in Mindanao it is for someone not too acquainted with deep Bisaya terms to start getting to know them, and what’s the best way to remember a word is through an engaging activity. I have made a slide of this game wherein you can use them on your next event.

Mechanics: When a Bisaya sentence is projected on the wall/screen, a group member should try to translate the sentence into English. Depending on the consequences, when someone does not translate it correctly they’ll be punished. The slides consist of 4 sets, wherein 2 playing groups should draw.

Some Bisaya words on the game and their meaning:

Hulagway – Picture

Lapyahan – Shoreline

Pahiyom – Smile

Ngilngig – Worse

Bahandi – Treasure
