    If the player tells a story, gives a lesson, or a talk, he gets rid of a number of cards equivalent to the minutes that the oral presentation lasted. The other players give him a score between 1 to 10. The player is allowed to discard the score multiplied by the number of minutes spoken divided by ten.
