[Bettin' Birdies, The Anteroom]
A charcoal brazier by the main tentpole warms this central room, where hopeful (and dismayed) gamblers pass in and out, blessing their joys or cursing their woes. Occasional cheers or moans escape from behind the thick curtains that allow entrance to the betting rooms.
You also see a yellow curtain, a red curtain, a blue curtain, a green curtain and an orange curtain.
Obvious exits: out.


[Bettin' Birdies, The Yellow Room]
A perch-like metal rod extends completely across a room hung with yellow drapes. On the perch stand three contraptions -- assemblages of wood and metal that resemble huge (if skinny) canaries. In their metal feet they grip the rod, which serves as the axle around which they rotate, spinning and flapping their mechanical wings.
You also see a yellow curtain, a gaming table with a velvet rope on it, a large sign and a croupier.
Obvious exits: none.

   Watch the birdies spin!  What will they do when they stop?
     You bet on what you think they'll do -- Possible Bets:

          Snort  Sniffle  Snarl  Snap  Snicker  Sneeze

    If one bird does what you bet on, you win your bet + 50%.
    If two birds do what you bet on, you win double your bet.
    If all three do what you bet on, you win triple your bet!

        === Special Bet: Watch Out for the Tornado! ===
If all three sneeze, it's a Tornado!  All bets on the table are
lost and added to the Tornado Jackpot, which keeps growing with
each Tornado.  How do you win the Jackpot?  BET on the TORNADO,
              and if all three sneeze, you win!!!
A Tornado bet must be half of the current value of the Jackpot.
         Only one player may BET TORNADO in any round.
It's easy!  Try BET 1 SNORT or BET 1 SNAP and see what happens.
             It only costs a single copper to try!
Feeling lucky?  Then play big, win big!  A sample bet might be:
                        BET 100 SNIFFLE
which would bet 100 kronars, and if a birdie sniffles, you win!

A table topped with green felt sits in the middle of the room. Painted on it is a large circle divided into six wedge-shaped segments, with a word in each segment. Clockwise, the words are SNORT, SNIFFLE, SNARL, SNEEZE, SNAP, and SNICKER. In the exact center is a picture of a tornado, touching each of the segments. A slate marker at the croupier's end of the table is marked with numbers.

The slate marker shows 86600 kronars in the Tornado jackpot and 8150 coins on the table.

The croupier is dressed in an interesting yellow satin gown and net stockings. Despite this showy ensemble, the most eye-catching thing about her is the large bird-mask covering her face and the glittering silver plumes waving behind her.


[Bettin' Birdies, The Red Room]
A metal rod extends from side to side of this room of red canvas. Three more-or-less birdlike mechanisms, rather like big red bird-puppets, stand on the rod, which serves as the axle around which they rotate, spinning and flapping their wooden wings.
You also see a red curtain, a large sign, a gaming table with a velvet rope on it and a croupier.
Obvious exits: none.


The croupier is dressed in an interesting red satin gown and net stockings. Despite this showy ensemble, the most eye-catching thing about her is the large bird-mask covering her face and the bright yellow plumes waving behind her.


[Bettin' Birdies, The Blue Room]
Three big, blue bird-like things -- some nightmare version of bluebirds, perhaps? -- stand on a metal rod at the far end of the room, a little distance from the tent's blue wall. The scent of axle grease, the clacking of the birds' wooden wings and beaks, and the jingle of coins give the room an unforgettable atmosphere.
You also see a blue curtain, a large sign, a gaming table with a velvet rope on it and a croupier.
Obvious exits: none.


The croupier is dressed in an interesting blue satin gown and net stockings. Despite this showy ensemble, the most eye-catching thing about her is the large bird-mask covering her face and the shining, gold-foil plumes waving behind her.


[Bettin' Birdies, The Green Room]
The room is as green as a forest glade, although noisier and smellier. Contraptions more like huge skinny parrots than anything else gaze bug-eyed from a perch on a long metal rod. They open and close their long yellow beaks and wave their wooden wings in a mechanical rhythm that occasionally sends one of the glued-on feathers flying through the air.
You also see a green curtain, a large sign, a croupier and a gaming table with a velvet rope on it.

The croupier is dressed in an interesting green satin gown and net stockings. Despite this showy ensemble, the most eye-catching thing about her is the large bird-mask covering her face and the candy-striped plumes waving behind her.

[Bettin' Birdies, The Orange Room]
The room has everything but the smell of citrus: orange walls, an orange dress on the hostess, and most spectacular of all, three garish mechanical birds, a bright orange, perched on skinny legs on a metal rod at the back of the room. The green felt on the table gives a little relief, however.
You also see an orange curtain, a large sign, a croupier and a gaming table with a velvet rope on it.
