"Count Seven" ?CEnglish Corner

--jozz

Welcome to English Corner. I am the host this time. This time we will play a game called "Count Seven". Now I will state the rule of the game.

    The game is played by two players A and B. Given a number, for example 43, A begins to count 43, B follows 44, A follows 45, B follows 46, and now it comes for A to count 47. As 47 contains "Seven", the 47 should be passed by saying other words about a given topics instead of counting it. For example, given topic "Part of body", A can say "Head" instead of counting "47". And B will follow 48, and it comes for A to count 49. But as 49 can be divided exactly by 7, A should not count 49, A can say "Foot" instead of counting "49", but A can not say "Head" again.

    Briefly, two player count the numbers by turns and skip the number that contains "7" or is 7-times by saying some different words about given topic.

    The one who has the following behaviors will lose the game:

    1. Count a number that contains "7" or 7-times;

    2. Count a number that is not the next number, e.g A counts 46, B follows 48 will lose the game;

    3. Say a word that is not about the topic;

    4. Say a word that is already said;

    5. Takes more than 5 seconds to count the number or saying a relative word.

    Everyone execept the two players will the justice.

    The one who lose the game will have a gift: He/She will have to pick up a tongue-twister and read it, explain it and twister it untill no mistakes and the winner satisfies.

    Have you got it?

    OK. Let's have a hotwarm and seperated into two-player-groups. Let's count in circle the one who counts "Seven" should get the card. The two with the same card number are in the two-player-group. Game will begin from Group No.1.


    There are 9 topics:

    1. Foods;

    2. Products of our company or the technologies that are used in our software products;

    3. Names of staff of our company, including English;

    4. Clothes and decorations;

    5. Names of family tree;

    6. Office supplies;

    7. Part of body;

    8. Furniture or household appliances;

    9. Cities of China;

    If time permitted, we will talk about things we did in the Spring Festival after the game.
