I T: Good afternoon, everybody! I`m glad to meet you at our guessing game «Wonder Land». It is dedicated to Thanksgiving Day, so all the tasks will be connected with it.
You know that it1s an American holiday and it`s celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It will be on the twenty-seventh of November this year. On this day American honour, the memory of their first settlers and marks the end of the harvest season.
I`d like to explain the rules of our game. They are rather simple. There are four rounds in it and and there are three players in every round. We need a dice and the «Wonder Land». You throw the dice, and if your sector is «plus», you name a letter in the guessing word. If your sector is «minus», you miss your turn and wait for your next one. If your sector is «prize», you can either take it or continue the game. You can also guess the whole word. The winner will get a prize. Are you following me?
So, let`s start. I want the first three players. To do such a work, I`d like to ask three questions. Listen to me attentively.
