How to play:
Deal three (3) prompt cards to each player. All players begin at start. The player who can tell the best joke rolls first.
Roll the 10-sided die. Move your player piece to match that number. If you land on a blank FREE space, then your turn is over.
Choose a card from your 3 prompt cards. Use the word or words on the prompt card to create your own Figure of Speech or Literary Device as prescribed by the space in which you have landed.
Choose a new prompt card after each discard. If a player is struggling to use the cards in hand, discard one and replace it with a new one. When all cards have been discarded, shuffle and reuse the deck.
From that person, go around the board so each person gets a turn.
Remember, the first player to the center wins and can jump up and proclaim, “GadZooks!”
