Rainbow is a game in which the object is to spot a series of objects that in order correspond with the colors of the rainbow. Playing in a group of two or more, whoever calls out the most colors between red and violet on the ROYGBIV scale wins that game.
JEAN uses Rainbow but as if put in the setting of a parking lot.
The goal- To call out as many cars in the series of JEAN as to win that game and as many games in the time period of the game.
Procedure - While walking through the designated path of the parking lot (using the "Anchorage" parking lot on Jones and Beach for example) point and call out loud when a player has spotted a car that fits the make in the order being played.
Rules Governing Action - Cars can only be used for play when the make of the car corresponds to the make in the order of JEAN (Japanese made, European made, American made, Neither). Players cannot play on cars that have already been played on in a previous run through of the parking lot (each car is marked by chalk after being played) and cars that have been passed in following the path of the parking lot are no longer in play, basically no backtracking only forward movement. The player to name the most cars in a series of JEAN wins that game. The player to win the most games wins or goes on to the next round. After reaching the top floor (in the case of the Anchorage level 5 or ROOF) the scores are tallied. For the case of the Anchorage players can also play for points in which each car called out has a number corresponding to the space in which it is located in the lot. Players with the most points can also contend for the next round or win from point accumulation.
# of players- must be two or more with two or more matching score keepers to each player.
roles of participants - those that are in the game playing for JEAN and those who are keeping score to their designated player (as well as keeping fair play) .
required equipment - chalk (colors if low number of players or a symbol can be drawn to keep track)
