Twisty Tealz: Danish & Faroese

Languages of the Northern Lights: A Bilingual Card Game




In this bilingual game, you will learn numbers, colors, and phrases in the language of your choice - or both. A fun addition to your language-learning journey, or a perfect way to learn together with friends and family for your trip to Scandinavia! This fast-paced, easy-to-learn game is perfect for total beginners and includes a little something for more advanced learners, too.

Features transliterations into Younger Futhark runes, the writing system used by the Norse during the Viking Age.

Be the first player to have zero cards left in their hand and declare "Nul(l) Kort!"

This is a translation of our first game to teach two additional languages, but with some major differences in art and minor differences in content and design. The most notable differences are the addition of the number 20 and removal of the "draw 5" teal card.

Gameplay is the same as for our previous title. A how-to-play video for that can be found here.

Why these languages?

Danish and Faroese descended from Old East Norse and Old West Norse respectively, dialects of the language of vikings and fabled shieldmaidens. Today, Danish is spoken by around 5.5 million people, while Faroese is spoken by about 75,000. Danish is an official language of Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland, and is studied from elementary school in Iceland. Faroese is closely related to Icelandic and Old Norse, and a third of Faroese speakers live in Denmark.

To boot, Denmark ranks in the top 3 countries in the world for freedom of the press, quality of life, and places to live for women and children; while the Faroe Islands is home to one of the oldest parliament sites in the world still in use today - dating to the 9th century!
