this is how the game works: as we will be identifying species before playing this game, you will have an idea about the names of the species and a few facts about them. but for you to be more prepared for this game, players get 10 minutes to study/read the notes they need to know in order to answer the questions. we have a dice to roll and each player is to choose a number differently from the other from 1-4. and whoever chooses whatever number comes up, can either answer the question or give the opportunity to the other player to answer (if they answer incorrectly, they lose a point). first player that gets 3 points wins, UNLESS, the other player chooses #5 or #6. that player has the chance to eliminate the highest-scoring player if he/she answers the question correctly with an explanation. if they choose a number from 1-4, they more likely want to gain a point, but if they choose from numbers 5 & 6, they more likely want to eliminate a player . numbers 5 & 6 are only for elimination questions and requires explanation to prove the answer. players get hints too as their advantage. 1. a.) NAME TWO NATIVE SPECIES THAT YOU CAN SPOT IN CAMOSUN BOG b.) give two native species that grow fruits (names end with 'berry') 2. a.)
