Game Instructions

To Start:

• Decide what skill level you wish to play. Each card includes three skill levels of questions: Beginner, Intermediate, or Expert.

You will be asked questions from your chosen skill level for the duration of the game.

• Each player or team must select a playing piece.
• Place all the selected playing pieces on the "start" square.
• Decide who goes first (we recommend starting with the most novice birder, and work

To Play:

Player 1 moves forward one square, to the "Florida Keys". Players move forward one square at the beginning of every turn. Note: moving forward means moving clockwise.

Player 1 is now asked a question from the appropriate skill level. If the question is answered correctly, Player 1 moves forward one square. It remains Player 1's turn until a question is answered incorrectly, or until a "life list” card ends the turn. If Player 1 answers incorrectly, the turn is over.

• Move clockwise around the table. Just remember, at the beginning of every turn you move forward one square.

• When you land on a "life list" card, select a card from the "life list" pile. Do what the card says, and when done, return the card to the bottom of the pile.

Note: If the card asks you to answer a trivia question, and you answer correctly, your turn continues. If the card does not ask you to answer a question, after moving to the appropriate square, your turn is over.

• The first player to make it back to the "start" square wins the game.

Please note that in many questions we refer to North America. For the purpose of this game, North America includes continental United States and Canada, from Alaska to Florida, and California to Newfoundland. Mexico and Hawaii are not included.
