Each player locates the matching pictogram of the card just announced on their board and marks it off with a chip or other kind of marker.

    Your Loteria cards are very nice. However I would like to know what the DOM word represents? The picture looks like a sun which in Spanish would be “SOL”. I imagine for rabbit you chose a female one instead of a male rabbit which would be “CONEJO”. Your site and materials are impressive. Thank you for making them available to us.
