Wo ist bitte Umtata?

Where are mobiles thrown?


We have already been asked about the whereabouts of Honolulu, Buxtehude or Uppsala, but have not yet been asked for the location of Umtata! Small wonder, as Umtata cannot be found on a map, but is a place holder for one of the European countries that are marked on a map of Europe in one of four colors. In addition to the colors, the card shows white lines that divide the map into four regions, North, South, East and West. Each player takes an indicator wheel in his color and marker for the scoring track.

One player is the questioner, draws a card and reads out the question – for instance, in which country is the army smaller than the national orchestra and hay bales are transported in the car booth? Based on information like this, which is of course well-known to everybody, you consider the country which could be represented by Umtata and use your indicator wheel to give a guess on region and country color of the country on the map. You may guess, but not talk!

If you believe that you know the right answer definitely, you throw the wheel, with your color showing, on the „Tataa – I know“ area, that is, the box bottom. The first on this area answers and then checks the answer by himself. If you are correct, you score three points. If not, you do not name the answer and the next Tataa player, if any, can answer. Then the questioner names the correct answer; all check their wheel and and score one point each for correlation in color and region. Whoever reaches 16 points first, wins.

A nice version of trivia knowledge as a geography tests, lots of fun and laughter are guaranteed; knowledge helps, guessing also works!
