Game Instructions – Steps and rules for the game
Natoteka is an educational social game designed to introduce young children to the basic concepts of NATO.
The choice of questions and the playful crafting are the purpose of the game.
The game is designed for two players. Each player needs to correctly answer 10 questions to get to the end of the game. The winner is the player who will do it first.
Start is determined by using an arrow located in the middle of the substrate. The first is the player who first gets the color field of his pawn. If the arrow stops at a color that is not the same as the color of the pawn then the other player continues the game.
Each question has a correct answer that is hidden in the game, so the game allows any player who does not know the correct answer to learn, and thus upgrade their knowledge.
There are also fields in the game that if the player does not answer the question correctly they will return to the beginning in order for the questions to be repeated.
The first question is with two answers, if the player chooses the correct answer he goes to the next question box 2, and if he chooses the wrong answer he returns to the field marked with START.
The second question is with three offered answers that are written on the cards placed in the pocket. The cards are different in color, and the correct answer is hidden on the color card that matches the color highlighted next to the gold bar. Once the question is answered exactly that card is placed (glued) on the gold bar.
In the box of the third question there is a mini board (write-erase) on which the player has to write down the correct answer. The correct answer is hidden on a card to be reached by following the arrow direction.
The fourth question has two answers. The correct answers are written inside the circles, and will be found out after the gold bars are drawn.
The fifth question is in the form of a flower, with four answers offered, of which only one is correct. A smile signifies the correct answer, while a sad one wrong.
The player should be particularly careful about this question because if the wrong answer is chosen he can be punished by the sad smiley by: missing one spin, missing two spins and returning to START.
The next four questions (6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th) are book-shaped questions where the answer is hidden on the last page. The tenth question is the same for both competitors. They have to answer the question of what the NATO flag looks like, and they will know if they answered correctly once they put the puzzle in the pocket in the middle of it.
The winner is the player who will successfully complete all the questions.
