Day 3

 

After each country handed, to the hosting country, the pawns that had brought for the board game called Europe4u, the students were grouped into four teams and the game began. Here is the description and the rules of the game that the Cypriot students created and all the partners brought to life:

OBJECT: The object of the game is to become the first player reaching the square in the middle of the board through answering questions about Europe.

PLAYERS: The game was designed to be played by 4 teams of 2 but it can also be played by individual players. In the case of the teams, one of the two players throws the dice and helps as a "team council"*. The other player moves the pawn on the board picks question cards and answers questions. A game coordinator is also needed the question out loud. If there is not someone available, the opponent player reads the questions out loud.

EQUIPMENT: The equipment consists of a board, 4 pawns, 1 dice, and 80 question cards.

PREPARATION: Place the board on a table and put the question cards face down on their allotted space on the board. Each player or team chooses one pawn to represent him/her while traveling around the board.

All ABOUT THE SQUARES: Take a peek at the game board. The squares are numbered from 1 to 72. Players' pawns will move back and forth across the board, following the numbers upward- starting at square number 1.

Super Box 50/50: Any time that your pawn ends its move on a square "Super Box 50/50" you have 2 options to choose from when you answer a question, not 3.

Team Council: Any time that your pawn ends its move on a square "Team Council" you can get help from your team to answer the question.

2 Squares Back: Any time that your pawn ends its move on square "2 squares back" you have to move your pawn two squares back. You do not answer to a question this time.

4 Squares Back: Any time that your pawn ends its move on a square "4 squares Back" you have to move your pawn four squares back. You do not answer to a question this time.

Swap: Any time that your pawn ends its move on a square "Swap" you have to choose one of your opponent's pawns and swap positons. However, you must answer a question correctly first.

GOING UP A LADDER: Any time a pawn ends its move on a picture square at the bottom of a ladder, that pawn must climb up to the picture square at the top of the ladder, after answering a question correctly. If the player does not answer the question correctly, the pawn is not allowed to climb the ladder.

THE FIRST TIME YOU PLAY: Everyone throws the dice. The player or the team with the highest number goes first, the player or the team with the second higher number goes second and so on.

ON YOUR TURN: You throw the dice and move your pawn, square by square, the number shown on your dice. Then, you pick a question card give it to the game coordinator. The game coordinator reads the question out loud. You have 30 seconds to answer the question. If you don’t answer the question or if your answer is wrong, you move your pawn back to the place which it was situated, before you played.

WINNING THE GAME : The first player to reach the last square, number 72, wins the game. The trophy, stayed to Cyprus as Cyprus' team won the game. In a humble ceremony, each country received a pack containing the board of the game, the rules, the questions cards, dices and a pawn representing each country-partner.
