If the player successfully forms a health or fitness collocation, they score a point. For an extra point, the student then tries to make a meaningful sentence using the collocation, e.g. 'At the moment, I'm trying to cut down on the amount of junk food I eat'. The other group members listen and judge the player's sentence. If the sentence demonstrates the meaning of the collocation, the player scores an extra point. The next player then tries to put down one of their dominoes at either end of the domino chain and so on. When a player has gotten rid of all their dominoes, the game ends.
