Special Rules

Turns

At the beginning of each turn, you draw 5 cards.

You may play 1 action card per turn.

You must play all the things in your hand during your turn. If, at the end of your turn, you still have cards in your hand, you must reveal them to all opponents. If there are any things in your hand, you are eliminated. Otherwise, discard your hand.

Any things remaining at the end of a player's turn that contain a color in the title are turned face down in front of him. All other things are destroyed.

Calling Cards

At any time during an opponent's turn, you may call a color in the title of any card that is face up, but you must say "Beetle" before the color; however, if the color is red, you must say "Beaver Cleaver". The first player to successfully do this takes the card and puts it face down in front of him. For example, player A plays "Black Cat". Player B then says "Beetle black", takes the card and places it face down in front of him. Note: You may NOT do this during your own turn.

Incorrect Calling

If you incorrectly call a color, you must immediately discard one face-down card in front of you. If you have no face-down cards in front of you, you are eliminated.

Victory

When at least one player has at least 10 cards face down in front of him, the player with the most face-down cards is declared the winner.

Other Rules

Each player starts the game with no cards in his hand.

All face down cards are considered blank.
