The card game’s main objective is to get rid of all the cards you are holding. But it may not be as easy as it looks. You may be dealt with a letter or a subject card. Players need to match the letter card with something that the subject card may require. If the subject card says, “Something That Has Seeds,” if you have an “S” letter card in your hand, you can deal it and shout out “Strawberry.” Each turn is timed. Once your turn runs out and you do not have the answer, you need to get one card from the remaining deck and the next player takes a turn.
Each player states with a random set of six cards, 3 from letter pile and 3 from topic/Wild card pile. Play starts with one player and question is asked to the person to their right. Each players turn last 10 seconds or less unless they have a More Time card. Each player must ask a topic with a letter. If no one answers, that person must answer the question if they correctly answer they win the round and gets to turn in their used cards for that round. If they can't answer the question asked, the game moves on to the next person to the RIGHT. If anyone answers, they get to go next. First person with no cards remaining wins. If player has no letters or no Questions they must draw another card and play or keep drawing till they get what they need.
There are also four wild cards in the deck that will make the game even more exciting. An Extra Turn card allows those who have it to play two turns at once. The Switch Direction card reverse the direction of the turns that players are currently employing. A More Time card (an extra 10 seconds) gives the holder more time to provide an answer. The Big Switch allows those who have it to switch their cards with someone of their choosing. These wild cards usually give an interesting surprise to those playing the Switcheroo Card Game.
