Can you chop up a whole carrot without it collapsing?
PACKAGE CONTENTS: 13 wooden discs, 1 wooden carrot top, 1 wooden toy knife.
INSTRUCTIONS: Build a carrot by placing 8 discs on top of each other and then the top section. The oldest player goes first.
Using the toy knife, try to knock out the bottom disc of the carrot in a single strike without making the carrot fall or knocking out any other pieces.
Continue, disc by disc, to knock out the bottom piece of the carrot until the top section is on the playing surface. You cannot knock out more than one disc at a time.
You can never touch the discs with your hands. For each turn, you can use three bonus moves: no more than 3 times during a turn, you can line up the remaining
pieces of the carrot only using the toy knife. If you manage to chop up the entire carrot, you stay in the game.
If you cause the carrot to collapse or knock out any disc other than the bottom one, you count up the number of discs removed correctly and
then it is the next player's turn. The next player tries to remove discs from a rebuilt 8-disc carrot.
Once everyone one has had a turn:
- If only one player managed to chop up the
whole carrot, then that player is the winner.
- If nobody managed to chop up the whole carrot, then the winner is the player who removed the most discs. If two or more players removed the same number of discs, then the
winner is the player who used fewer bonuses.
- If more than one player managed to chop up the whole carrot, then they all remain in the game for the next round.
At each subsequent round, add one more disc to the carrot, until it has a maximum of 13 discs in the final round. If two or more players manage to correctly chop a 13-disc carrot, the winner is the player who used fewer bonuses during the final round. If there is still no winner, then everyone wins and the game starts again!
To make the game more challenging, try playing without using any bonuses!
