  3. Game Directions • The goal of the game is to get to the finish line with the most “Global Celebrations” cards. Just because you may get there first, does not necessary mean you are the winner. To play the game you have to roll the dice and move from stepping stone to stepping stone. When you land on a black stone, you must answer a question. If you get the question right, you receive a “Global Celebrations” card. Then you follow what the card tells you to do. To win the game you have to have the most “Global Celebrations” cards when all players have crossed the finish line. Return

  4. Game Preparation • Each game must have one dice. • Game board: Look at slide 63 to see what the game board will look like.
