Conversation lesson: Parcheesi game
Students: Annel, Tina Toshi, Megi00 (Europe, Asia)
Teacher: Donatella Benoir (USA)
Have you ever played Parcheesi? I haven’t this was my first time. Well, that’s what I thought. But it turned out it is very similar to a game that the British call Ludo and in Czech we call it clovece nezlob se.
It’s a board game. The aim of this game is to move each of your four pieces in home, that’s in the centre, as quickly as possible.
Each player rolls a die; the highest roller goes first. On each turn, players throw one or both dice and use the values shown to move their pieces around the board. Five has a special value in entering pieces out of the nest from where they begin the game. A player may enter a piece only by throwing a five or a total sum of five on the dice. Any piece that is not on a safe space can be captured (eaten) by an opposing pawn (piece). A player is awarded 20 bonus spaces for capturing an opposing piece.
We played and Tina captured my pieces several times. Donatella was the quickest and won the game. The game was exciting and a good fun. Whilst playing we talked about how has our week been so far.
