Object of the Game
This get-up-and-dance game is full of Chihuahuas who know how to boogie. Be the player to get the most Chihuahuas on your dance floor and you win!
Shuffle the cards and stack them face down in the center of the playing area to form a draw pile.
Gather all the Chihuahua figurines in the center to create the dog pile.
Pop up the Nap Shack and place it next to the draw pile.
Give each player a dance floor. (Place any extras out of play).
Each player takes one Chihuahua from the middle and places it on their dance floor.
Important: You must always place Chihuahuas on your dance floor so that:
The player who most recently pet a dog goes first. On your turn, flip the top card face up to start or add to the discard pile. Take the action indicated by the card. After completing your action, play moves to the next player in a clockwise direction.
Single Chihuahua Card
Time to Cha-cha! Take one Chihuahua from the center dog pile and place it on any open squares on your dance floor.
Then get up and do a celebratory dance by doing your interpretation of the dance move on the card!
Double Chihuahua Card
Time to Cha-cha with a partner! Take two Chihuahuas from the center pile, place one on your dance floor and give one to the player who has the fewest dogs on their dance floor.
If it's a tie, you get to choose. If it's you, you get two! Then get up and do a celebratory dance with your partner by doing your interpretation of the dance moves on the card!
There's only one thing Chihuahuas love more than dancing - eating! Lure another player's Chihuahua with a delicious bowl of Cha-Cha Chow-Chow.
Ask any player to give you one of their Chihuahuas and then place it in an empty space on your dance floor.
Note: You may take this action immediately upon revealing the card, OR, save it for later by taking the card and placing it face up in front of you.
On a following turn, rning over a card from the draw pile, place the card in the discard Pile, and ask another player for one of their Chihuahuas.
Dancing in a cha-cha marathon is lots of fun but it can be exhausting! Time for some doggies to get some rest. Look at the color of the blanket on the card. Then look at your dance floor.
If any of your Chihuahuas' feet touch a color square that matches the color on the blanket, you must send them to the Nap Shack. Take those figurines and place them inside the Nap Shack. (No action if you don't have any matching dogs).
Doggies can't rest forever! If there are any Chihuahuas in the Nap Shack, invite them back to dance. Take all of the Chihuahuas out of the Nap Shack and place them on any open squares on your dance floor.
If the Nap Shack is empty, take the card and place it face up in front of you.
On a future turn, instead of turning over a card from the draw pile, you may place the card in the discard and take all the Chihuahuas from the Nap Shack.
End of the Game
Keep taking turns and drawing cards until the dog pile is out of Chihuahuas. At that point all players count the Chihuahuas on their dance floors.
Whoever has with the most doggie dancers wins. In case of a tie, both/all players win!
