Camels And Coyotes
New Internationalist 322 April 2000
Everyone can play the Fairtrade Game
You will need one die and a counter for each player - small coins will do. Land on a square where the footprints begin and you advance to the square where the camel has stopped. Land in the jaws of a coyote and you slide down its tongue to the square where it ends. You must throw the exact number to finish.
Coyote is the Latin American name for a scavenging dog - and an epithet applied to predatory traders. Loosely based on ideas from Ed Mayo/Simon Zadek and the New Economics Foundation.
The following cartoon is about 100k, so may take a minute
to download. It has been sliced so that you can read it as it loads.
