>> is played in C-mine expedition

2) Smoor-ver-tjirpt op jou... is an active, exploratory game for fourth to sixth year primary school pupils in and around the Energy building at c-mine. The game tells the story of Cyriel the Cricket, who is in love. The love story is told in a cool, exciting and humorous way.
