PLAYING THE GAME
The game can be played individually or in teams. We find that teams are more fun and up to 16
people can play at a time in 4 teams of 4.
Four Real! The rules are the
same whether the game is played individually or in teams. For simplicity, whether the game is played
by individuals or teams, the word “player” is used.

by only reading the top question.
Once all of the top questions have been read, return to the
beginning of the deck and play Four Real reading only the bottom question
on each card.
player (Reader) picks up a card and reads the category title above the
BIDDING ON A CARD
player then decides how much to bid on the category. The corresponding number from the vinyl
bid circle is placed secretly on the bid chip. The bid chip is then placed face down on the corresponding
color on the game board. (For
example, the blue team places a blue vinyl bid on the blue bid chip.) The blue bid chip is placed face down
over the color on the board. The
minimum bid is one.
all bid chips are placed, they are turned over for review.
- The highest
bidder (becomes the Bid Player) and gets control of the question,
which the Reader then reads. The
Reader’s team (if played in teams) participates without the help of the
WHEN BIDDING- if two or more players bid the same number, the player with
the fewest chips gets the bid. If
both players have the same number of chips, or zero chips the team to the
left of the Reader gets the bid.
STAR- The Star automatically gives the player using the Star control of
the question. The Star is treated
as a bid of 4. A player can
only use the Star 1 time during a game.
Each question in the game has 4 answers. The player has 30 seconds to answer the
question. The Reader announces how many
correct answers the Bid Player gave.
Regardless of the number of correct answers given, the Bid Player
may collect only as many chips as were bid. (i.e. The Bid Player bid 2
but provides 4 correct answers. The Bid
Player may collect only 2 chips.)
The Bid Player can block the other players by answering all 4
parts. Only after 4 answers (or as many
as the Bid Player is able to provide) are given, play continues to the
right and the other players get an opportunity to give answers and win chips.
- If the
Bid Player provides a number of correct answers equal to or more than the
bid, the Bid Player receives 1 chip for each answer bid.
lose a chip for every question bid that is not answered correctly. For example, if a winning bid is 4, but
the player only has 3 correct answers, that player would put 1 chip back
in the center of the board. No
chips would be taken for the 3 correct answers since the bid of 4 was
missed. Players without chips do
not put any chips in when they miss their bid.
