Option 2: 浑水摸鱼
This option will get each player to catch 2 fishes into their own respective fishing basket. Each fish represents 2 Chinese characters on its body and when 2 fishes are correctly matched, they will form a Chinese idiomatic expression. Player with the most idioms created wins the game.

Option 3: 攻城拔寨
This option will require each player to choose the correct definition of some Chinese idiomatic expressions and when the correct answer is chosen, the player will receive one soldier that is sent to establish a flag in the territory. The player will also receive an arrow when he/she answers correctly. Opponents can choose to attack others with arrows when they see other player’s soldier on their way to establish their flag. Player with the most flags established in their territory while having the most number of correct answers wins the game.
