Object of the Game

Be the player with the shortest Nose after all the Noses have been taken.


Setup

  • Each player puts on a pair of glasses.

  • Put the Game Mat in the center of the table.

  • Put the Silver Nose on the Bigfoot space on the Game Mat. Place all the other Noses around the Game Mat, as shown.

  • Shuffle the cards and deal them out evenly to each player.

  • The player to the left of the dealer takes the first turn. Play continues clockwise.



Game Play

If you're the first player, start by announcing and discarding Bigfoot cards face down into the Discard Pile (the center of the Game Mat).

  • If you have Bigfoot cards, you can discard one or more of them and tell the truth. (For example, "I saw two Bigfoots")

  • If you don't have Bigfoot cards, or you want to get rid of other cards, you can discard any cards from your hand and tell a fib. (For example, you could play three Alien cards but announce, "I saw three Bigfoots").

  • You must discard at least one card per turn.

  • To end your turn, move the Silver Nose to the next space on the Game Mat.

The next player on the left announces and discards "Ghost" cards. Play continues clockwise with each player discarding and announcing the next card in order as shown by the Silver Nose on the Game Mat (Alien, Witch, Dragon, followed again by Bigfoot and Ghost).

Players take turns playing cards in this order.



Catching a "Fibber"

Any player can call "FIBBER!" on you if they don't believe the cards you've just announced are the ones you're playing.

  • If you are fibbing, don't reveal the cards you just played. You must take a Nose from the table and add it to your glasses, then take ALL the cards from the Discard Pile and add them to your hand.

  • If you are not fibbing, show the cards you just played to the other players. The player who accused you of Fibbing must add a Nose from the table to their glasses, then take ALL the cards from the Discard Pile and add them to their hand.

In either case, move the Silver Nose on the Game Mat. Play continues with the player to your left, who plays the next card in order.


Playing Wild Cards

A Wild Card can be played in the place of other cards. Use this card to confuse your opponents!


Getting Rid Of All Your Cards

If you get rid of all of the cards in your hand, you get to remove all of the Noses from your glasses and return them to the table. Collect and shuffle all cards from all players, then deal them out at the beginning of the game. Play continues with the player to your left, starting once again with Bigfoot.


End of the Game

The Silver Nose is the last nose. When the Silver Nose is removed from the Game Mat, the game ends.

The player wearing the SHORTEST nose wins! If there is a tie, the player with the fewest cards wins.
