- 48 lifesavers
- 7 flamingoes
- 4 lifeboats
- 2 alligators
- 1 game board
Object of the Game
Score the most points by flinging your lifesavers around the flamingoes on the board, while avoid ringing any alligators.
Attach the flamingoes and alligators to the game board by inserting them into the slots. Insert the flamingoes into the slots with the pink circles and the alligators into the slots with the green circles.
Twist them to fit snugly in place.
Put the board on top of the box bottom and place it on a flat surface in the middle of the playing area.
Give each player a lifeboat and 12 matching colored lifesavers.
Place your lifeboat in front of you with the bow (front) facing towards the board.
On the count of three, start flinging your lifesavers onto the game board at the same time as the other players. Here's how to fling:
Place the lifesaver in the slot at front of your boat.
Bend the lifesaver back with your fingers and release it.
- You may only fling each lifesaver once.
- Try to aim your lifesavers so they land around the flamingoes.
- You may not touch or move the game board until everyone is out of lifesavers.
End of the Game
The game ends when all players are out of lifesavers. As soon as this happens, tilt the game board at a slight angle to remove any loose lifesavers.
Then check to see if any of your lifesavers landed around flamingoes or alligators. Score accordingly:
- Bottom-most lifesaver around any flamingo: 2 points
- Other lifesavers around any flamingo: 1 point
- Any lifesaver around an alligator: - 2 points
The player with the most points wins.
In case of a tie, the player who rung the most individual flamingoes wins. For a longer game, play a number of rounds equal to the number of players. (For two players, play four rounds).
Keep track of scores between rounds and the player with the highest score after the last round wins.
