How to play: The Chameleon – The Family Party Game


Hi it’s Big Potato Becky here and this
is how to play our sneaky social bluffing game The Chameleon choose the green or blue code card decks doesn’t matter which you use as long as
you’re all using the same color take the chameleon code card and additional code
cards from your chosen deck until you have a card for each person playing
shuffle the code cards together and deal one out face down to each player deal out a topic card into the middle of the table roll the yellow six-sided die and the blue
eight sided die and then look at your code card the numbers on the dice
will show everyone who isn’t the chameleon where to look on the topic
card for this round’s secret word if you’re the chameleon now is the time to pretend to look like you know what the secret word is take a moment to think of a word
that you associate with the secret word if you’re not the chameleon you want to
choose a word specific enough that the other players will believe you know what
the secret word is but not so specific that you’re giving the answer away to
the chameleon if you’re the chameleon you should be looking at the possible
words it’s it could be and thinking of a word that might loosely fit all of them
but not too loose otherwise they might realize you’re the chameleon when you’re all ready each player says the word out loud one after another
now comes the arguing maybe one person’s word doesn’t seem to associate with the secret word particularly well maybe they didn’t look very confident when they
said it maybe they’re casting so much shade on everyone else
that they’re suspicious themselves or maybe you’re just the chameleon trying
to pin the blame on someone else after a bit of polite and civilised discussion
you all vote on who you think chameleon is with an accusatory pointing of a finger the player who receives the most votes reveals their identity if they aren’t the chameleon then the chameleon has escaped and won if the group instead
correctly identified the chameleon then the chameleon has been cornered but
they’ve still got a chance left to escape they get a chance to guess what
the secret word was if they get it right then they escape at the last moment and win
if they don’t they lose and everyone else gets to to celebrate their well-earned victory
