How To Play
Designed for at least four players to create teams of two, roll the die to see what challenges lie ahead. If ‘Synonym Twist’ is rolled, players from the opposing teams go head to head to guess common phrases from the provided clues, i.e Grimy Wealthy (Filthy Rich) or Matrimony Gown, (Wedding Dress). If a x1 or x2 is rolled, players choose a ‘Mixed Messages’ card and have only 30 seconds to guess the provided idioms. An example could be, “Use currency with belief that it is cultivated from woody plant foliage,” (Spend money as if it grows on trees.) The x1 or x2 indicates how many spaces you move your pawn for every idiom you guess correctly. The first team to the finish line wins!
