Game One: Classic Booby Trap

Object of the Game

Score the most points to win!



Game Play

The youngest player begins and play passes to the left. In turn, players will remove ONE piece.

Once a piece is touched, the player must pick that piece or pass their turn. They may not choose a different piece.

If a player removes a piece without moving the ticker past a raised mark, that player may keep it.



If the ticker passes over a raised mark, the offending player must discard the removed piece and any other pieces that have popped off of the board.

The player must also discard 3 points worth of pieces from their collection (see SCORING). If unable to discard 3 points, the player must pay what they can and pass.

Turns may be passed. It is okay for following players to also pass their turns, BUT if turns are passed for two rounds, the player who begins the third round MUST remove a piece.

Play continues until the board contains pieces equal to the number of players in the game (example: a 4-player game is over when there are 4 pieces left).


Scoring

  • Large (blue) piece = 3 points
  • Medium (yellow) piece = 2 points
  • Small (green) piece = 1 point

End of the Game

Count the pieces and add up the points (see SCORING). The player with the most points wins!




Game Two: Unlock the Trap

Object of the Game

Unlock the trap by picking the correct pieces in order!


Game Play

Each player randomly chooses a game card (). The youngest player begins and play passes to the left. Players will remove ONE piece in the order indicated on their cards.

Once a piece is touched, the player must pick that piece or pass their turn. They may not choose a different piece.

Place each piece on top of its spot on the card. Pieces that are chosen out of order must be placed aside.

If the ticker passes over a raised mark, the offending player must discard the removed piece and any other pieces that have popped off of the board. The player must also discard ALL the pieces on their card and start over.

Turns may be passed.

It is okay for following players to also pass their turns, BUT if turns are passed for two rounds, the player who begins the third round MUST remove a piece.



End of the Game

The player to fill up their card and "unlock the trap" by getting their combination first wins the game!
