    In playing the game of "ENVIRONMENT", the objective is to create an interest in the environment in the players which is accomplished by having the players acquire maximum number of "Shah" stars which are awarded for their active participation in the game and the knowledge obtained in environmental resources.
  • [0012]
    The following represents a more detailed description of the rules for playing a typical game, it being pointed out that the various indicia may be altered and various types of game pieces may be utilized by the players: State Treasury:
    • The State Treasury is the sole owner of all monies and estates in playing this game. The State Treasury leases the estates to the players after receiving the necessary costs and fees for the said estate. If the State Treasury should go out of funds, plain paper dollars with marked amounts and signed by the President of the State Treasury could be used. The State Treasury cannot go bankrupt.
    • For selecting the President of the State Treasury, each player must take a turn to rotate the environment roulette. The lowest number shown out of all players, will be selected the President. The President automatically receives $500.00 from the Treasury, for his duties throughout the game. The Presient must always remember to keep his personal monies separate from the Treasury department. When there are more than four players participating in the game, it is recommended to appoint one player as the President of the State Treasury full time, and he will have no playing piece on the game board and he will be out of the game, but will be fully responsible for the control of the State Treasury and will see that all the rules of the game are implemented properly by the players. The $500.00 he was to receive from the State Treasury will remain the property of the State Treasury.
  • Description of materials involved in the game: 1. Game Board
  • [0013]
    The game board is made of flat cardboard. There are 44 spaces marked along the side of the game board which are numbered for the convenience of playing the game, except for the starting point which is not numbered. There are four different colored decks of cards in the center of the game board.
  • 2. Environment Roulette and Two Balls:
  • [0014]
    The game is played by means of environment roulette and two small metallic balls. There are 36 spaces marked in the environment roulette. These spaces are comprised as follows:
    • (a) 24 Arabic numbered spaces. These are four sets of 1 - 6 numbers marked on spaces in the roulette.
    • (b) Four blue color spaces.
    • (c) Four red color spaces.
    • (d) One white color space.
  • Method of using environment roulette:
  • [0015]
    The players move their playing pieces on the game board according to the numbers indicated by the ball(s). The player will rotate the environment roulette and the balls will land on two spaces marked in the environment roulette. If the two balls land on:
    • (a) Two Arabic numbers: The player will move his playing piece by totalling both the numbers.
    • (b) One Arabic number and one color: The player will draw the card from the deck on the game board according to the color where the ball lands and move his playing piece according to the Arabic number. The player will follow the instruction of the card from the deck first and then will move his playing piece according to the number.
    • (c) Double Arabic numbers (same numbers): The player will move his playing piece by totalling both numbers and the player will get one more turn-and will rotate the environment roulette once again. This process will be repeated if the player gets doubles again and will continue until he gets a single number with color or two different numbers.
    • (d) Double Colors: The player will draw two cards from the decks on the game board according to the colors where the balls landed on the roulette. If two balls land on the same color, then the player will draw two cards from one deck. When the two balls land on colors, the player will get one more turn and will rotate the environment roulette. This process will be repeated until one of the balls or both balls comes to rest on one or two numbers.
  • How to play the game: Step One: Arrangement of Materials:
  • [0016]
    Place the game board on a flat surface, such as table, floor, etc. Separate and place face down, all colored cards, according to color and space provided on the game board. Each player will receive the amount of $3,000.00 from the President of the State Treasury for playing purposes. Each player selects his/her own playing piece to represent him/her for their new adventure.
  • Step Two: Playing Technique:
  • [0017]
    All players take one turn, to rotate the environment roulette. The player with the highest score shown will be player No.1 and will start the game. The player with the second highest score shown will be player No. 2. The player with the third highest score shown will be player No. 3, etc. The seating arrangement will follow the same pattern. All players will be on the left side of player No. 1 in sequence of their scores. Player No. 1 will begin by placing his game piece on the game board, in the space marked "Start". He will then rotate the environment roulette in the direction pointed by the arrow, and will proceed to move as many spaces as shown on the environment roulette. If player No. 1 lands on property that may be leased, he may do so. Player No. 2 and all other players will follow the same procedure as player No. 1. If a player lands on a property which is already leased, then he must pay lease charges to the owner.
  • Award of "Shah" stars: - when played as an educational game.
  • [0018]
    Each player is required to submit a request to the President, for a "Shah" star, after he is in the possession of two estates, as specified below:
    • (a) Two National Parks, with recreational centers;
    • (b) Two Energy Companies;
    • (c) Two Clubs.
  • [0019]
    He must prepare himself for the merit test, thus, being allowed to skip one turn for studying purposes. The merit test begins by the player requesting the merit test, reading aloud to the other players the information printed on the back of his two lease registration cards. The player then gives his two cards to the President. Two questions, asked by other players and based on the information read from the back of the lease registration cards, must be answered correctly by the applicant to win the award of the "Shah" star. If the player answers one or both questions incorrectly, the "Shah" star is denied and the player has to pay $50.00 compensatory fine to the State Treasury and the President returns the two lease registration cards to the player. The player can re-submit his request for the award of a "Shah" star, after his third turn only. If a player fails three merit tests, his estates are confiscated by the President, returned to the State Treasury, and no compensation is given to the player. Once a "Shah" star has been awarded, it can-not be sold, traded, or given to any other player, under any circumstances.
  • [0020]
    Award of "Shah" stars: when playing for fun only.
  • [0021]
    This game when played for fun only, the "Shah" stars are awarded on the following basis:
  • When:
  • [0022]
    • (a) A player owns two National Parks with recreational centers, one "Shah" star is awarded.
    • (b) A player owns two Energy Companies, one "Shah" star is awarded.
  • [0023]
    Once a "Shah" star has been awarded, it cannot be sold, traded or given to any other player, under any circumstances.
  • Selling leased estates on the basis of which "Shah" stars were obtained for getting additonal stars by erecting recreational centers on the already leased national parks:
  • [0024]
    The player can sell to the State Treasury, the leased estates on the basis of which he already obtained his stars for erecting recreational center on already owned National Parks, with a view of obtaining an additional "Shah" star.
  • Lease is compulsory if a player lands on a free estate:
  • [0025]
    If a player lands in a National Park, Energy Company or Club, it is compulsory to purchase the lease. If the player does not have enough cash to purchase the lease of the estate, he will be considered a visitor only. The estate will remain the property of the State Treasury until another player lands there and is able to purchase the lease of that estate.
  • Leasing National Parks and Recreational Centers:
  • [0026]
    If a player's piece reaches a space marked "National Park" and this estate is not already leased by another player, he has to purchase the lease by paying the cost marked in the space on the playing board. The player will then be given a lease registration card with the name of his newly purchased estate. The player must then place a recreational center on his estate and will pay the charge shown on the lease registration for erecting a recreational center. If the player does not have enough money to buy a recreational center at the time of the lease purchase of the National Park, he will then have to buy the recreational center as soon as he is in the possession of enough money to cover the cost thereof. If the player fails to do this, he will have to pay a fine of $100.00 to the State Treasury for failure to act promptly for the appropriate action. After paying the fine, the player has to erect a recreational center by his next turn, otherwise the State Treasury will take back the National Park lease and will not refund any compensation. If the National Park is already leased out, and under the circumstances where no recreational center has been built on the National Park, the owner can charge another player admission fees only, for landing on his leased estate. It is the duty of the landed player to ask the lease owner to show the lease registration card and pay the admission fees and charges for the recreational center, if erected. It is the responsibility of the lease holder to claim the charges from the player who lands on his estate. If the lease holder allows the player to move out of his estate without paying charges (due to lack of claims), the President fines the player who moved out of the estateand the lease holder forfeits the charges which he could have collected. If the landed player moves out cf the National Park without paying the required dues, the President of the State Treasury will collect a fine of $100.00 for admission fees and $1,600.00 for the recreational center, if erected. This fine is for violation and dishonesty of the game. If for some reason the lease registration card cannot be found among the players, the President of the State Treasury will call the owner of the leased property to produce the lease registration card. If the owner fails to produce the lease registration card, the lease will be cancelled and the estate will be taken over by the State Treasury again.
  • Leasing Energy Companies and Clubs:
  • [0027]
    If a player lands on a space marked Energy Company or Club, and it is not leased by another player, he must purchase the lease by paying the cost marked in the space on the playing board. After the lease has been purchased, the President of the State Treasury issues the buyer a lease registration card, showing the name of the estate he has purchased and the charges for the use of the facilities when used by other players. If the Energy Company or Club is already leased out, it is the duty of the landed player to ask the lease owner to show the lease registration card and pay the charges for the use of the facilities. If the landed player moves out of the National Park, Energy Company or Club, without paying the required dues, the President of the State Treasury will collect a fine of $100.00 for violation and dishonesty of the game. If for some reason the lease registration card cannot be found among players, the President of the State Treasury will call the owner of the leased estate to produce the lease registration card. If the owner of the leased estate fails to produce the lease registration card, the lease will be cancelled and the estate will be taken by the State Treasury.
  • Selling and transfers of leased estates to the State Treasury:
  • [0028]
    The State Treasury will accept, at any time, the return of the leased estates but only one-half of the original lease fees will be refunded.
  • Leased estates cannot be sold from one player to another:
  • [0029]
    If a player needs emergency cash for a penalty, or accident charges, or taxes, or for erecting a recreational center, he can return his leased estates back to the State Treasury only. A player cannot turn his leased estate back to the State Treasury or remove his recreational center for the purpose of buying a new or different estate.
  • Personal gifts and loans:
  • [0030]
    Players are not allowed to give or to receive any type of gifts or loans from other players or from the State Treasury, regardless of the situation.
  • Environmental Protection Tax: (Red Cards)
  • [0031]
    If a player arrives at "Environmental Protection Tax" space, and/or a ball lands on red space in the environment roulette, he will take the top card from the red deck and read aloud clearly. If the player fails to read aloud and accurately the contents on the card, the State Treasury will charge double the amount shown on the card. The player returns the card face down to the bottom of the deck after reading it. The player may or may not read aloud the contents of the card when playing for fun only. Try Luck: (Blue Cards) If a player reaches a /"Try Luck" space, and/or a ball lands on the blue space in the environment roulette, he will take the top card from the blue deck and read aloud the conents to the participating players. If the player fails to read aloud the contents of the blue card, he will pay a fine of $100.00 to the State Treasury and returns the card to the bottom of the blue deck. The player may or may not read aloud the contents of the card when playing for fun only.
  • Conversation Grant:. (Green Cards)
  • [0032]
    If a player lands on "Conservation Grant" space, and/or a ball lands on the green space in the environment roulette, he will take the top card from the green deck and read aloud and clearly, stating the reason and the amount which he will receive as his Conservation Grant. If the player fails to read aloud and accurately the contents of the cards, the State Treasury will not pay the player the amount of the grant which he was expected to receive. After reading the card, the player returns the card face down to the bottom of the green deck. The player may or may not read aloud the contents of the card when playing for fun only.
  • Performance Efficiency Award: (White Cards)

If more than two players are participating in the game, the second, third and fourth place winner would be according to the number of "Shah" stars in the possession of the players.
    • 2. If the game is interrupted and has to be stopped for any reason, the winner is the player who is in possession of the most "Shah" stars.
    • 3. If two players hold an equal amount of "Shah" stars, the game becomes a tie game between the two players.
    • 4. If a player owes a debt to another player, he will return his estate leases to the State Treasury for the proper refund, and in turn, will pay his debt to the player he owes.
    • 5. If the player has been awarded any "Shah" stars with his estate leases, he will keep his "Shah" stars until the game comes to an end. If he should become bankrupt during the play, he must remove his playing piece from the board and can only participate in the process of the merit test given to other players.
    • 6. If one of the last two players loses all his cash and estates, the game ends and the player who has the greatest number of "Shah" stars is the winner. Game as instructional tool in Environmental Science and Inter-Disciplinary Science Courses: This game could be utilized as part of the formal system in teaching Environmental Science. The instructors could assign students in the schools, colleges and iniversities, to play "Environment" and to submit a short report of what knowledge the students have acquired from the game regarding environment and its application in life. Necessary credits may be granted for the productive effort of the student.
