Description:

Monster-Bande contains 2 x 54 equal tiles with monster images. One set of tiles forms a face-down pile, the other one is spread out openly on the table. In addition, there are two dice.

The faces of the dice show properties of monsters, such as horns, feet, color, numbers, etc.

Monster-Bande is played in teams of two or more players. One player on each team rolls the dice, then draws the top tile of the pile and has to describe the monster on it without saying any of the properties mentioned on the dice.

The other players on the team have to identify the matching monster on the table. If successful, they take the tile and the active player draws a new one, etc., until the one-minute timer runs out. If the active player uses a forbidden word, the turn ends prematurely.

When all monsters have been assigned, the team with most tiles wins.

The game includes variants for younger players and for two or three players.

What is it all about:

The game works best if played in teams. It is up to the players if two or more teams are built.

Setup

All cards with red back sides are well shuffled and put on a face down pile.

The cards with the blue back sides (twins) are spread out on the table with the monster sides up. The hourglass which determines the duration and number of rounds and the two dice are put next to the cards. …



The dice determine which parts of the body or features must not be mentioned. They also may not be described or hinted at. If the team members ask questions about current forbidden characteristics the explainer is not allowed to answer them!

If done so anyway the current card must be put back under the pile and the next one is drawn. That is why the opponent team(s) should always pay full attention!

*Size:

It is not allowed to describe if something is fat, skinny, big, small, short, broad, slender, etc. …



For Younger Players

If playing with younger children one or also both dice can be omitted. Also the number of twin monsters can be reduced. In case of a mistake or a wrong guess it is the next player's/next team's turn.

For Two Players

If only two players are in the game they work as a team and try to find all the monsters needing as few rounds as possible.

The two players take turns describing and guessing. As described before the features that mustn't be said are determined by the dice before each round. …
