A step-by-step guide to play the game


Attach the DIY GEO#1 panel to a big discussion panel and attach the Mobile School sliding door

panel to that discussion panel. Close all the doors so all images are hidden.


This game is played by 4 teams (or by 4 players).


Team 1 opens one door of column 1 or 2 and will see a flag of a country.


Now, team 1 will open one door of column 3 or 4.

If the object on the drawing links with the flag of the country (check the coloured bar to be sure),

the team can continue by opening a door of column 5 or 6.

If not, all doors are closed again and it's team 2's turn. Now they can open one door of column 1 or



If a team can open the 3 doors (flag, object & monument) corresponding to the same country, they get 1 point. If the team can name the country corresponding to the images, they get an additional point. Another point can be earned if they can name the capital city of the country.


The players need to memorise the doors opened by the other teams in order to score as many points as possible.


The game ends, when all combinations have been found. The team who scored the most points wins the game!
