Negotiations


Each negotiator will be given a list of points that they are trying to attain. Next to each point there will be a list of numbers between 1 and 20. This list is so that the negotiator can mark off incorrect guesses as he makes them. Below the first list will be a list of points that the opposing negotiator is trying to attain. Each one of these points will have a number between 1 and 20 listed as a target number.

A sample card for a police negotiator may look similar to this:

Your Points

-Release Hostage #1: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

-Release Hostage #2: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

-Release Hostage #3: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

Opposing Points

-$10,000,000 in cash: 12

-Jet at the airport: 09

-Release of evil terrorist from prison: 18

Every 15 minutes during the game, the negotiators will contact each other on their assigned frequency. Each side will "negotiate" for each item on the negotiation list. First one side will go down their list of points and guess a number. If it is wrong then they will mark the number off of the list. If the correct number is guessed then that point has been gained from the other side.

Example Negotiation:

Police Negotiator: "Release of hostage #1, 12"

Terrorist Negotiator: "No"

(Police negotiator when then scratch off "12" from his list behind Release Hostage #1.)

Police Negotiator: "Release of hostage #2, 09"

Terrorist Negotiator: "No"

(Police negotiator when then scratch off "09" from his list behind Release Hostage #2.)

Police Negotiator: "Release of hostage #3, 12"

Terrorist Negotiator: "No"

(Police negotiator when then scratch off "12" from his list behind Release Hostage #3.)

Terrorist Negotiator: "$10,000,000 in cash, 14"

Police Negotiator: "No"

Terrorist Negotiator: "Jet at airport, 09."

Police Negotiator: "Yes"

(The terrorists have just gained having the jet at the airport waiting for them.)

The negotiations would then continue through the list until each negotiators list is complete. They will then sever communications and talk to each other again in another 15 minutes, going through the lists of their points that they have left.
