All the players put their counters on the Start square. 4. Player A throws the dice. He/She moves the counter along the squares according to the number on the dice. 5. Player A looks at the symbol on the square where the counter has landed. The symbols are a star, a smiley face, and a sun. Player A picks up a question card from the pile with the same symbol. 6. Player A turns to the player on his/her left. Player A now picks up the “Give A True Answer Card” and the “Give A False Answer Card”. Player A holds these 2 cards out in a face down position to the player to the left. Player B chooses one of these cards. Now Player A goes back to the question card. Player A asks Player B the question on the card. Player B must give either a true or false answer according to the “Give A True Answer Card” or “Give A False Answer Card” that he/she chose. 7. All of the other players, including Player A, guess whether Player B’s answer is true or false. Each player gets 1 point for guessing correctly. All of the cards are placed at the bottom of the appropriate piles. Player B now throws the dice and the game continues in this way. 8. If a player lands on a square marked “?”, that player can ask the player on the left any question they like. The player on the left must still choose a “Give A True Answer Card” or a “Give A False Answer Card” and answer according to the card chosen. 9.
