The toy box reads “Do you appreciate Germany?” Because good judgment is half the battle. TERRA DEUSCHTLAND is a quiz game in which you aim to answer correctly as many questions as possible about the colorful diversity of our country.
HUCH! -VERLAG has made Terra Deutschland available for us to review.
This does not affect our rating!
This is how it works
The playing field is placed in the middle of the table and all players get six guessing stones, one of which is used as a scoring stone. Terra cards are placed in the card box so only the top half can be seen.
This half shows the questions whose answers will be appreciated, and the bottom half shows the solutions. It is therefore advisable to fill in the card box as completely as possible so that the answers cannot be seen.
There is a fact on each Terra card (such as Davidwache, Rittersport, Deutsches Knopfmuseum or Caspar David Friedrich) and three questions that must be answered. The first question always relates to the area where the truth you are looking for can be found and the other two questions must estimate the year, length, or number.
The person who begins reads the visible portion of the card and can also be the first to answer one of the three questions and place a grade mark. She set this either to an area of the Germany map or to one of the scales of the year, length, or number. Then the next person’s turn comes. She can now place a guessing stone on a space that is still empty.
This is done in turn so that all players place as many guesses as possible. Then it comes to evaluation. If a person guesses the area or unit correctly, he gets seven points, and if he places the guessing stone on an adjacent area or unit, he gets three points. If the guessing stone is wrong, the person loses that stone. At the end of the round, all players get back one of their lost stones. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
The instructions are brief and concise. It doesn’t take long to understand the rules of the game. The game material is very high quality.
The device in the card box is particularly handy for covering up answers. However, there should be enough cards in the chest so that the card does not bend backwards and you can see the answers.
