how to play

This is a simple game for 2-4 players (or teams), played on the board with picture and word clues, and some special squares (e.g. Go ahead two spaces).

  • Decide who starts and who comes next.
  • Take a turn by flipping a coin (heads = move 1 space; tails = move 2 spaces).
  • When you land on a picture, you have to make a sentence about it. To do this, use the words from the game board, for example, New Year's Day is on the first of January.
  • If your answer is correct, don't move.
  • If your answer is wrong, move back one space.
  • The winner is the first player to reach the finish.
