Поделитесь материалом с коллегами:



Игра проводится между двумя командами по 7 - 10 человек в каж­дой. Каждая команда перед игрой выбирает название и капитана.

Вопросы игры поделены на 6 тематических групп: история, геогра­фия, культура и традиции Великобритании, английские народные загадки и вопро­сы-сюрпризы. Выбор темы для ответа определяется при помощи ку­бика, на гранях которого написаны названия тем.

Каждая команда перед игрой получает «стартовый капитал» - 300 000 фунтов. Команды торгуются за право отвечать на вопрос по выпавшей теме. Торги происходят в форме аукциона. Выигравшая торги команда выбирает вопрос по данной теме и после тридцатисекундного обсуждения отвечает на него. Если ответ неверный, команда-соперник может попытаться ответить на тот же вопрос.

Игра продолжается даже в том случае, если у одной из команд не осталось денег, пока не будут исчерпаны все 18 вопросов (по 6 в каждом из 3-х туров). После каждого тура жюри объявляет промежу­точные результаты, а после последнего тура объявляется команда-по­бедитель и проводится награждение (вручение торта).

Выигрывает команда, потратившая меньше денег и заработавшая больше очков.

Состав участников:

  • игроки двух команд;

  • члены жюри;

  • ведущий-аукционист.


  • игральный кубик;

  • молоточек аукциониста;

  • 300.000 «фунтов»;

  • карточки с вопросами по темам;

  • приз (торт).

Now listen to the rules of our auction. It consists of stages, each of them includes 6 questions. These questions deal with the English history, geog­raphy, culture and literature; there are some English folk riddles and some surprise questions.

Let's choose the 1-st theme (topic). This dice will help us to do it. (Ведущий бросает кубик и читает тему.) Oh, it is the English history! Do you like the English history? You do! So, if you want to have a question about the English history, you have to buy it.

So, the 1-st lot is the English history and the starting price is 10 thou­sand pounds. Who wants to buy it for 10.000 pounds? One, two, three – it is sold.

So, you've bought this question and you've bought the right to be the 1-st, to answer it. But if your answer is wrong, the other team could give their variant. Now, please, the captain, come to me and choose one of these cards.

So, your question is… And it costs (....) points. You have 30 seconds to discuss it.

  • What is your answer?

  • It's right (wrong ) and you've got your 1-st point today.

The next question will be about (бросает кубик)... literature! Who wants to have a question about literature? (и т. д.)
