Countable, Uncountable. How much? How many?

But you know, practice makes perfect, so let's get to work! Play the first game. Move the spider with the arrow keys to get the matching answer: Which nouns are countable? Which are uncountable? Which can be both? By the way, watch out! There are distractors! Then, have a look at the cards and think: Do you have to complete the sentences with how much or how many?
