Chord Construction Madness Game for Major Chords and Inversions

Next week is group lesson week here at the studio. While planning, I realized that I wanted to do some kind of an activity for some of my intermediate students that emphasized chords and inversions. After thinking for a bit, I developed this game.
There's nothing ingenious about it, but I'm hoping that it will help reinforce major chords and inversions. At their turn, each student draws three cards. The first names the chord, the second specifies the inversion, and the final card details how they will create the chord: either by spelling the chord, writing the notes on the staff, or playing the chord on the piano. I hope this will be a fun activity in our upcoming group lessons and for individual lessons in the future as well.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement! The document can be found under the games section of my printables page.
