The Intellectual Auction is a game played by
two teams. Each team has $1000 to buy the
questions by offering the highest price like in
an auction after the teacher says the starting
price. If the team buys the right statement , it
gets 1 point. If the team buys the wrong
statement, it gets 2 points. Moreover, 1 more
point is given, if the team can correct it.

languages, political parties, food traditions
