HOW TO PLAY - CRANIUM® ZIGITY™ -  GAME RULES

GET READY

  1. Check out your Zigity cards.  There are three types of cards  in the game: set cards, free cards, and purple action cards.

  2. Shuffle the deck and deal seven cards to each player.  You can look at your cards, but don't show them to anyone!

  3. Place the rest of the deck in a stack face down.

  4. Turn one cards face up next to the deck.  This is the play card.  (Whenever the play card is a purple action card of a free card, turn over another card.)

Now you're ready to play!
The person whose birthday is coming up next goes first.

ON YOUR TURN

Play a Set of Cards

  1. Look at the play card to see which character is in the center.

  2. Find the matching character below and follow the directions to complete your set.
    Hint: Remember to read the special rules for each character set!

OR

Play a Purple Action Card

  1. Choose the action card you want to play.

  2. Find the description of the card below and follow the directions.
    Hint: You can play an action card at any time, even if you could also play a set.

HOW TO COMPLETE A SET

Word Worm®:  If the play card character is Word Worm:  Use the letter on the play card (for example, "F")...
AND the letters on ANY of your cards (for example, "U" and "N")...
to spell a word.   "F U N" (Sample Word Worm Set)
Special rules:  Your word can include any mix of set cards and free cards, and the letter on the play card can appear anywhere in your word.  Your word can be as long or short as you want, but you can play only one word per turn.

Data Head®:  If the play card character is Data Head:  Use the number on the play card (for example, "5")...
AND the numbers on ANY of your cards (for example, "3" and "3")....
to add to 11.  "5, 3, 3" (Sample Data Head Set)
Special rules:  You can use as many or few cards as you want, including any mix of set cards and free cards, but your set must add to 11 exactly.

Creative Cat®:  If the play card character is Creative Cat:  Use the puzzle piece on the play card (for example, the center piece)...
AND
the puzzle pieces on ANY of your cards (for example, the left and right pieces)... to complete the puzzle.
Special Rules: 
Your completed puzzle can include any mix of set cards and free cards.  After you complete one puzzle, you may complete another if you have one of each piece in your hand.

Star Performer®:  If the play card character is Star Performer:  Use the Instrument on the play card (for example, the drums)...  AND the instruments on ANY of your cards (for example, as many drums as you have)... to complete a set.
Special Rules: 
A complete set can include any number  of matching set cards (even if you have only one matching card).  You can also use free cards.

Free Cards:  Free cards can be used to complete sets by representing one letter, one number (1 to 10), one piece of Creative Cat, or one musical instrument.
Sample Word Worm set with a Free card:  F *freecard*  N.
Sample
Data Head set with a Free card: 3 *freecard* 5.
Sample
Creative Cat set with a Free card: 2 puzzle pieces and a Free Card.
Sample Star Performer set with a Free card:  The same musical Instruments (example, drums) and free card.
Special Rules:

  • You can use more than one free card in a set.

  • When you use a free card in a set, explain how you are using it.

  • A free card can't be used as an action card.

  • If you leave a free card as the play card, turn over a new play card from the deck.

HOW TO FINISH YOUR TURN WHEN YOU PLAY A SET
Place your set on top of the play card.  The card you leave on top is the play card for the next player.  If you leave a free card on top, turn over a new play card for the next player.  Now your turn is over.  The player to your left goes next.

HOW ACTION CARDS WORK

  • Draw 2 or Draw 3 - When you play a draw card, the next player draws the number of cards shown from the deck.

  • Dodge - Use a dodge card to dodge a draw card or to avoid drawing a card when you can't complete a set.  When you dodge a draw card, the next player must draw or play a dodge card.  You can't dodge a draw card after you draw the cards.

  • Bounce - When you play a bounce card, the order of play changes  from clockwise to counterclockwise, or the other way around.  IF you play a bounce card after the player before you plays a draw card, the order of play reverses and the player who played the draw card has to draw the cards.

Special Rules:

  • You can play only one action card per turn.

  • Whenever an action card is the play card, turn over a new play card from the deck.

HOW TO FINISH YOUR TURN WHEN YOU PLAY AN ACTION CARD
The next player completes the action, then turns over a new player card from the deck.  Now your turn is over.  The player to your left goes next.

  • If you can't  play a set and  you don't have any action cards, draw one  card from the deck.  Now your turn is over.  The player to your left goes next.

Winning: If you are the first player to get rid of all your cards, you win!
