Object of the Game
Earn the most money by successfully "operating" on Mater.
Separate the Doctor cards from the Specialist cards. Shuffle the Specialist cards and deal them out faceup so that each player gets an equal number. Place extra cards out of the game.
Shuffle the Doctor cards and place them facedown near the board. Choose a "banker" to pay players for successful "operations". Drop each Funatomy part flat into its matching gameboard cavity.
The youngest player goes first. Play then passes to the left.On your turn:
1. Draw the top Doctor card and read it aloud. The card tells you which part to remove and how much you'll earn for it.
2. Take the tweezers and try to remove that Funatomy part, but be careful! If you touch the metal sides of the cavity, Mater's headlight will light up and he'll make more noise than a tipped tractor!
SUCCESS! If you remove the part without setting off the light and sound, take your payment from the banker. Keep the part in front of you and place the Doctor card out of play. This ends your turn.
SORRY! If you set off the light and sound before completing the "operation" then your turn is over. Replace the part flat in the cavity and keep the Doctor card in front of you. Now the Specialist gets to try.
Now all players look at their Specialist cards. The player with the Specialist card for that "operation" now tries to remove the part for twice the payment!
Note: If the Specialist card is out of play, place the Doctor card facedown at the bottom of the deck.
The player to the left of the Doctor goes next.
If the Specialist is successful, he or she gets the payment. Place both cards for that "operation" out of play. The player to the left of the Doctor goes next. You're darn tootin' - this gas is bad Get it out and Mater will be glad.
If the Specialist is unsuccessful, place the Doctor card facedown at the bottom of the deck. The Specialist keeps the Specialist card. The player to the left of the Doctor goes next.
End of the Game
The game ends when all 11 Funatomy parts have been removed. The player with the most cash wins!
