Let's say there's an island in the South China Sea. It's called South Spratly Island, and that's where you all live.

What's this island like?

How many people live there?

How big is it?

It's a tropical island, and it has four villages on it. The people there are a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Indonesian. It also has an old hotel on it, built by the British over a hundred years ago. As for what the island looks like - well, actually, that's up for you to decide.

[Paper and pens are brought out. The players have fun drawing the island's outline and discussing where the mountains, rivers, swamps and beaches should go]
