About the Game

The "Faces & Places" series of DVDs are designed with the senior citizen in mind. The objective is for the viewer to try and name the image on screen. The images shown are famous people, popular landmarks, or other enjoyable subjects. The DVDs can either be viewed for entertainment and challenge or can be played as a game. There are three levels of play.

  • Level 1 — This level is passive in that the viewer just sits back and tries to name the famous person or the what, and sometimes where, of a popular destination before the name appears on the screen. This level is automatic advance with about 15 - 20 seconds of the image before the name appears.
  • Level 2 — This level is a game and requires the active participation of the player. The player is given a LEVEL 2 GAME CARD. On this card is the alphabetical listing, usually by last name, of the numbered images that will be seen throughout the game. There is a line next to each name where the player writes the number of the image. This level is also automatic advance with about 20 seconds to find the correct name and write the number next to it.
  • Level 3 — This level is a game and also requires the active participation of the player. The player is given a Level 3 GAME CARD. The card is numbered with a blank line next to the number. The objective is to write the name of the image (which has a number) next to the corresponding number on the GAME CARD. If there is an asterisk on a line, it means that there is a second part for extra credit. For example; if there is an asterisk on a line showing Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara, the player would get extra credit for naming their real names of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. Or, if there is an asterisk next to a famous landmark ,the player would get extra credit for writing not only the name of the image but also where it is located. This level is also automatic advance with about 20 - 30 seconds to write the correct name next to the corresponding number.
  • Level 2/3 — This level is a game and requires the active participation of the player. With this option, the player has a choice between Level 2 and Level 3. In this way, a group can play at the same time with each player deciding on the level of difficulty they prefer. This level is automatic advance.
  • Level 2/3 — (manual advance). This is the same game as above, but as the subtitle states, allows the administrator to take as much time as needed before advancing to the next image. For obvious reasons, there is no music on this level except for the open and close.

The RUN TIME for all levels will usually be between 20-30 minutes.
