Penny Ante helps to strengthen and maintain skills for speaking, listening, reminiscing, critical thinking, communication, storytelling, and imagination. Each card contains large print so that the words are easy to read. Just print on card stock, cut, and laminate to start the fun. You may use a tablet or computer, if printing is not an option to display each card.
Depending upon how many people are playing the game, everyone will receive at least 10 pennies (or poker chips) and at least 25 pennies (or poker chips) are placed in the middle or the “pot”. One person or each participant can take turns reading what is on each card.
Each card allows the participant to express their thoughts and opinions when reminiscing or engaging in meaningful conversations.
This activity can be completed by individuals with progressing dementia using some scaffolding and support to the best of their ability.
Buy it once and use it for a lifetime.
