OBJECT OF THE GAME
Everyone plays against each other simultaneously, trying to
be the first to move their pawn on the game board and all the
way to the finish space. The player who reaches it first wins the
game!
SETTING UP
1. Carefully remove the category tiles and color tokens from
the game board. (The arrow removed from the game
board is not used in the game and can be thrown away.)
2. Place the game board on the table and the dice bowl in the
middle of it.
3. Each player chooses a pawn and a color token of the same
color.
4. The players place their pawns in the starting space 1
and their color tokens on the table in front of themselves.
The tokens help the players remember which color pawn
is theirs! Place the joker in the dice bowl and give the letter
dice to the youngest player.
5. Now the game can begin!
HOW TO PLAY
END OF THE GAME
1. Roll the letter dice in the dice bowl. Now everyone tries to
form a word using the letters on the dice.
The first player to reach the finish space 2 wins the game!
Each letter that is showing can be used only once, while
the joker stands for any letter (and can also be used only
once). The words must consist of at least 4 letters and
be in their infinitive form.
OPTIONAL RULE
If you want a bigger challenge you can shuffle the category
discs with the text side down and place them in a pile next
to the game board before the game starts. Turn the topmost
category disc to find out the category for that round.
You will score extra if you come up with a word that fits the
special category!
IF the word fits the special category, the explainer can
move an extra step!
When a new round is about to start, place the category
disc on the bottom of the pile and turn a new one. The new
category disc replaces the previous one.
Of the letters in the picture you could form the words
”snow” and ”dinosaur” but not the word ”taut”, as the
joker can only be used once.
2. The first player to think of a word loudly calls out “ALIAS”
to reserve the right to explain. They begin to explain the
word using the usual ALIAS rules (see How to Explain),
while everyone else tries to guess the word.
3. As soon as someone correctly guesses the word, the
following happens:
- The explainer and the player who guessed the word
correctly both move their pawns one step along the track
towards the finish. More than one pawn can be in the
same space at the same time.
4. All the players – apart from the one who explained the
previous word – now try to come up with a new word
as quickly as possible, using the same letters. When
someone has found a new word to explain, they call out
“ALIAS”.
HOW TO EXPLAIN
Before starting the game, the players should agree on
whether proper names, slang words, or regional expressions
are accepted.
When you’re explaining, you’re not allowed to use any part of
the word (e.g. you can’t explain the word “mouse” by saying
“What kind of animal is Mickey Mouse?”, but you could say “A
type of rodent”).
You’re allowed to use opposites (you’ll find it easiest to
explain the word ”big” by saying ”The opposite of small”).
You’re not allowed to use a foreign language, unless all the
players have agreed to it.
MISTAKES
If the explainer makes a mistake (uses a part of the word they
are explaining), the word is not accepted and the player has
to move their pawn one step back on the path. After this the
round ends, a new category disc replaces the previous one,
and the dice are rolled in the bowl for a new round.
PLAYING ANOTHER ROUND
-
-
If no one has come up with a new word from the same
letters after approximately 30 seconds, take the letter dice
from the bowl. Roll the dice again.
When a new round starts, all the players try to come up
with a new word.
