USA Coast to Coast is a language game aimed at learning English through popular symbols of the United States of America (places, characters, cultural heritage, monuments of history, cuisine, lifestyle elements). The game is for anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge of English (in the American variant) in a relaxed and stress-free environment and get to know basic information about the popular symbols of America.

LANGUAGE DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Beginner/pre-intermediate (A1-B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

PLAYERS’ AGE RANGE: Children from 8 years of age, adolescents, adults.

LANGUAGE PURPOSES:
– learning the geography, civilization and culture of the United States;
– learning vocabulary and expressions describing the presented symbols;
– developing conversation skills.

GAME APPLICATION: The USA Coast to Coast game makes learning English more interesting and may as such be an excellent addition to typical classroom and language courses. It also works great in home environments, where it can be used to play with family and friends in the form of a social game.

CONTENT: The set contains the following items:
– 8 dice with illustrations;
– 8 dice with descriptions of illustrations;
– manual and spreadsheet with phrases and descriptions (three hints for each password).

BASIC VARIANT OF GAMEPLAY:
The dice with illustrations should be spread on the table so that they are visible to all players. In turn, the descriptive dice remain in the hands of the leading person which reads respective descriptions aloud in an order consistent with the field numbers from 1 to 48 or at their own discretion. Each description consists of two hints. The leading person can read both hints or only the first one initially. The task of the participants is to select the corresponding illustration based on the description. For this purpose, they can take the dice into their hands, see how they look and turn them in all directions. The first person to guess which picture is the subject of the description and reads its signature aloud receives a point. In turn, if none of the players within 10-20 seconds (or another timeframe set by the leading person) indicate the correct illustration, the leading person can complete the hint by reading the second hint from the dice (if not previously read) and further, expanding the description (the third hint to the phrase on the password sheets), giving the players some time to find the right illustration each time. The player who scores the most points wins. In this form of gameplay, you can also apply a more advanced scoring system, in which giving the correct answer on the basis of just one hint gives you 3 points, based on both hints, 2 points, and based on both hints expanded by the description sheet, 1 point..

ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGES OF THE GAME: USA Coast to Coast game improves mental abilities such as memory, concentration and perceptiveness, contributes to effective memorization and teaches active and healthy competition, and its playful nature helps in making social relationships with the rest of the players, it also positively affects the reduction of the distance between the student and the teacher.
