ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
Card game for 2+ players.
Based on the book “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll.
Wake up your opponents by increasing their Insanity Totals to 19+.
Each player has a starting Insanity total of zero.
Players share a common deck.
The deck contains 4 types of cards:
All players are dealt a hand of 7 cards.
The cleverest player goes first.
Players take turns.
Each turn has 6 phases:
1. Untwist Phase
2. Draw Phase
3. Story Phase
4. Play Phase
5. Insanity Phase
6. End Phase
All cards that are twisted sideways are twisted right side up.
Draw one card.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard & draw from it.
You automatically get 1 Free Story Point (SP)
You may Twist your land cards sideways to generate 1 additional SP each.
You may put Location, Character, and Modifier cards into play.
These cards are put face up on the table in front of you.
Location, Character, and Modifier cards stay in play until
Some other rule or card causes them to be discarded.
Character and some Modifier cards require the spending of
Story Points (their cost) to put them in play.
Modifier cards are attached to Character cards.
Twist your Character cards sideways to have them “Attack” a target player.
Each unblocked character causes that player to gain insanity points equal to
The Insanity Level of the attacking Character.
The targeted opponent may block your attackers with his untwisted characters.
Attacker & Blocker compare Insanity Levels.
The lower level of the two is discarded. If equal, both are discarded.
Two or more characters may combine to block a single attacker.
Discard combined characters with a combined level equal to the level of the attacker.
Max hand size is 7 cards. Discard excess cards.
Story points not spent are lost.
Play action cards whenever appropriate.
Action cards are discarded after being played.
