A step-by-step guide to play the game


Gather 4 players or 4 groups of players in front of the game board. Each group gets 2 coins (bottle caps) to start the game. The players can keep their bottle caps in their small bag. All the teams start at the starting square.


Spin the disc on the top right side of the panel to determine how many squares to move forward. Ask the player to complete the task on the specific square (sports activity, dilemma, fine or lottery). The player wins or loses points depending on the

specific square he/she is standing on.


Try to reach the finish line as quickly as possible. The player who finishes first gets an extra reward of two bottle caps.


When everybody was able to get to the finish line, the street educator counts the amount of bottle caps of each player. The player with the most bottle caps wins the game.


Reflect with the children why they have won or why they have lost bottle caps during the game.
