72 Cards, 24 Chips, 6 Headbands, 1 Timer
Object of the Game
The first player to get rid of all of his or her chips wins!
Place each of the cards face down in the middle of the playing area and read over the Headbanz Rules.
Each player then takes a headband and adjusts it around his or her head. Be sure the Hedbanz logo is in the center of each player’s forehead, just above the eyebrows.
Deal out one card, facedown, to each participant. Be sure to keep the Headbanz Rules close in case any of the players have questions.
Players then place each card into the clip of his or her headband. Be sure not to look at it as you put it in the headband! All other players must be able to see the picture.
Each player gets three chips, to be handed out by dealer. Any leftover chips become the “bank”‘s property.
The youngest participant takes the first turn. Then play passes to the left.
When it’s your turn, just flip over the timer and ask each of the players a question that will help you figure out what the picture is on your head.
Once you’ve asked each player a question, simply begin another round and then another.
The question cards provide examples of the types of questions that you could ask to help you figure out what the picture is on your head. No one has to follow the sample questions exactly, but players are not allowed to ask, “What am I?”. However they may ask, “Am I a…?”
If you guess the picture before the timer runs out, simply take another card and put it behind your headband. Continue to ask questions until the timer runs out. For each picture that is guessed correctly, you simply put one of your chips into the “bank”, signaling the end of your turn.
Players are always free to give up guessing at any point during their turn. But if that player does give up, they must take a chip from the bank!
