This was the prototype board shown above.
Here is a copy of the rules.
Object: To get across the board first and achieve “Recollection”
How to play:
1.) Pick a game piece and put it on the starting line,
2.) Roll for time and set clock.
3.) Present first card from the top of the deck to everyone at the same time, and start the clock simultaneously.
4.) Quickly, begin writing down as many objects as you can recall within the category as possible, write fast, and do not stop until the clock runs out.
5.) The person with the most objects afterwards wins the round and advances their piece to the next level.
6.) The first person to recollection wins, if desired, yell out
1.) No talking during clock time.
2.) Pens go down at buzzer.
3.) If all pens are down before time runs out, players can agree to stop the clock and begin reviewing answers.
4.) Feel free to argue about and even break the rules, but be prepared to look like a jerk.
1. ) write shorthand and/or scribble answers-as long as you can read it to the group the answer is valid
2.) appoint a judge who doesn’t play to settle disputes, or use the dictionary, internet, or encyclopedia.
Categories List: (One on each card)
Categories in red are adult ones that could be in the game inside another wrapper.
The game currently comes with 66 categories in a deck. There could aslo be up to 5 blank cards for people to put in their own category, for example, maybe a group of med students might do “Human Bones” or some other more difficult category, or specific to a group of friends.
