Begin the game by placing all tokens on the starting line.
Taking turns, the players advance by throwing the die and moving ahead by that amount of squares indicated by the die.
When players land on a red square (surprise), they are to follow the instructions indicated on the top surprise card, but when players land on one of the blue spaces (question) another player is to ask them the question on the top card of the question card pile. If the person who landed on the square answers correctly, they get to go again.
The first player to reach the finish line is the winner.
If the number on the dice is higher than the number of spaces between the player’s position and the finish line, the player must advance to the final space and then move his or her token back as many spaces as are left over from the number on the dice.
