3. THE GAME

Each turn, one player is the bilder. They draw a WHAT card and choose a topic. The bilder may use all the pieces in the box, stack them, move them around, but has to bild in total silence. No talking, singing, sound effects, not a peep. Whoever guesses the topic, earns the WHAT card.

To make guessing a bit easier, the bilder reveals the category on their WHAT card before bilding

  • Beings: people, animals, real or fictional
  • Imagined: fictional things
  • Locations: places or settings
  • Devices: inanimate things
  • Events: historical or everyday occurences
  • Rest: anything outside the other categories

 The Bilder can earn a card during their turn by picking 1 of the 3 revealed HOW cards (replenish every turn) that make bilding extra challenging. The bilder may choose to play without a HOW card, but then they won’t be scoring a card this turn. Their loss.
