A step-by-step guide to play the game

Since the game is specifically designed for young children, it is recommended to explore the panel first. You can do this by asking different kinds of questions such as:

  • How many animals do you count?
  • Which animals do you see?
  • Do all the people look the same?
  • Which colours can you identify?
2

All the players choose a character by putting a bottle cap on the lion, the horse, the elephant or the monkey.

3

Player one throws the dice (between one and three) and moves the number of spaces forward as indicated by the dice.

4

If the player lands on one of the four special symbols, he needs to do the corresponding task.

5

Repeat with the next player

6

The player who first reaches the circus is the winner.
