Roman Numerals - a game for learning about Italy

This is an adaptation of a game I played at a training at Waddow, Lancashire, England. The game is normally played using letters and words, using Roman Numerals probably makes it even harder!

Divide your group into teams. Each team has a set of cards laid out in front of them with a Roman numeral on each card. Probably a good selection for each team would be to have three of each numeral.

The person in charge calls out a number. Each team must hold up the cards (each person in the team can only hold up one card at a time) in the correct order, so that someone facing the teams can read the numbers. The difficult part is to co-ordinate everyone in your team so that everyone stands in the correct order, and that you are not 'spelling' things back-to-front!
