Rules

In this game there are a series of cards which need be guessed correctly in order for the player describing the action or person on the card to gain that amount of points. Each card is color coded with the amount of points for that given card. Harder cards have a higher point value. Four players or more is best.

  • The youngest player goes first. If two players have the same birthday play rock, paper, scissors to determine who goes first.

Points are as follows: Red-6 points Blue-4 points Yellow-2 points Green-1 point

Each player has 2 treehouse sets. As you gain points from the cards, take that color out and place it in front of you to represent the amount of points you have total. -Ex. You have someone correctly guess your card and its worth 6 points...you are allowed to take out a red treehouse piece.

Draw a card from the pile and accurately describe or act it out in 60 seconds. If it is not guessed it is placed face down in the bottom of the deck. Do not reveal what the card said!! If guessed correctly place in a discard pile. Both the player describing their card and the person that correctly guesses are awarded points. If a player is successful in describing their card they receive the coordinating treehouse piece for that point value. The person that guesses accurately receives one point (green treehouse piece). The treehouse pieces determine the amount of points each player has. If a player feels that they are not familiar with the action or person they may pass for no points. This is also the case if a player describes their card but is not successful in having someone guess it within the time given. It is then the next players turn.

You may announced to other players the category of the card.(action, person, character) Action cards must be acted out without conversation. Props may be used to better assist other players in guessing.

Cards with either a person or fictional character may be described with only 3 words or phrases. Complete sentences may not be used. Gestures are also prohibited.

For a short game-first player to reach 25 points Wins! For a longer game-first player to reach 50 points HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!
