2 The project meeting was a good opportu- nity to hand in pen friend letters. Students from Polish school wrote some letters to their Spanish friends and now they are waiting for the answers. 3 4 Polish teachers introduced the game "Countries and cities" and distributed a lot of boards. Spanish and Turkish teachers promised to spread this game among their students. The Countries and Cities Game (also the Intelligence Game) It is a kind of indoor game. You need to find a different kinds of words, which are connected with various fields oh knowledge. During every round all these words have to start with the same letter. The number of players – from three to ten. The objects which are needed during the game: - a table (a chart) with usually six columns; every column should be named with a name of one specific category, for example: a country a city an animal a plant a river an object a profession a name - every player needs a pen or ballpoint pen. A first player lists all the letters in an alphabetic order without making a sound. The second player should stop a first player after few sec- onds. The first player has to say which letter was the last on the list when he was stopped; it can be for example N. So all the players should write down one word from every category it the table and every word has to start with N. For instance: a country – Norway a city – New York a river – Nil an animal – nightingale (słowik), newt (traszka) a profession – nurse When one of the players finishes, he can start to count till twenty out loud. It is a sign for rest of the players that it is a time to finish. When the counting is finished, every player has to stop writing. And all the players together check their answers. Every person has to tell out loud the name which was written down. And then the next player starts the following round. When you draw the letter, which was chosen earlier, repeats a draw. The score system If the player is the only one invented word, which no one had, he gets 15 points. If every player had a different word - the all get 10 points. If everyone has the same answer, they get 5 points. And if you do not write the correct word or wrote nothing, you get 0 points, while the other players get extra 5 points (not includ- ing the player who has 15 points). The easier system: For the correct word, which none of the other players did not invent, one gets the 2 points, for entering words that someone else is also entered in the same column, awarded 1 point each. And if you do not write the correct word or wrote nothing, you don’t get any points. You can play as long as you like. The winner is the one who collects the most points during the game.
