The POOF-Slinky 0X3823 Ideal Instructures Game is a fast paced, highly interactive race to build wooden block structures against the clock. Instructures is a challenging and competitive game for a variety of ages and skill levels. (2) teams race to build the structure as shown on cards (the blueprints) by only using verbal instructions from another team member (the foreman). The team that correctly completes the structure wins the round and comes closer to winning the game. The game starts by dividing players into (2) construction crews where you pick a Blueprint Manager for the entire game. Each crew will pick a Foreman for each round that looks at the team’s Blueprint and begins instructing their crew. When the structure is complete the Foreman shouts “done!” and all construction stops. To determine if you pass or fail, the other crew now performs a building inspection. If you pass, roll the die and move your pawn forward. If you fail, roll the die and move your pawn backward. If the pawn lands on a special space, play the next round in that special way (Silent Challenge, Blind Challenge, Memory Challenge and Clock Challenge). The crew that reaches the ”Done!” space first wins. It's a game of see it, say it, build it that will provide hours of entertainment for the whole family.
