How to Win
Perparation: Begin the game by positioning the Score Board and have each participant pick a Slate. Subsequently, they should inscribe their name on the scoreboard with the same shade as their slate color. Afterwards, decide who will go first as Selector. The Selector will take a Word Cue card from the draw side of the box, reads it out, and puts it face-up on the table.

Game Play: During the Answer phase, each player must try to envision what the other person will choose; then they must jot down that word. One guess per person, and that's all! The Selector will begin by revealing their word, followed by the person to their left, and so on. Everyone should wait until it is their turn to reveal their answer. After everyone has revealed their answer, the game can continue.

Count the points carefully - 3 points for words that match between two players, 1 point for words shared by more than two players, and 0 points for those that no one was able to guess. Afterwards, mark the score on the board to keep track of each player's progress. Place the Word Cue card at the back of the card box and then pass it to the person to your left. This individual will become the new Selector and choose the following card. Subsequently, keep selecting Word Cue cards while alternating Selectors until someone earns 25 points.
