It’s a “Monopoly” kind of board game but much simpler than that. The name of the game is to search for a ‘conversation master’ amongst the players. Invite 3 to 8 players to sit round the board game. Each player talks when it comes to his turn. The player must speak for at least 30 seconds. Choose a person to play the role of a timekeeper. At the end of 30 seconds, the timekeeper will ring the call bell once to warn the speaker that he has 10 seconds left to complete his speech. After the 10 seconds are up, the timekeeper will ring the bell twice. The player must stop talking.
