RULES
YOU ARE AN ALIEN TRYING TO INFILTRATE HUMAN SOCIETY. TO BLEND IN YOU MUST EXPLAIN A VERY SIMPLE HUMAN CONCEPT TO OTHER HUMANS. SOUNDS SIMPLE, RIGHT? 

YOU AND A PARTNER WILL EACH DRAW AN ALIEN CARD AND THEN DRAW AN EARTH CARD BETWEEN YOU. YOU MUST GET YOUR 'FELLOW' HUMANS TO GUESS WHAT IS ON THAT CARD BY ONLY SPEAKING IN WORDS THAT START WITH THE LETTERS PROVIDED ON THE ALIEN CARDS, IN THE ORDER THEY ARE SHOWN ON THE CARD.OH, AND YOU CAN'T SAY ANY OF THE WORDS ON THE EARTH CARD, EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO CORRECT LETTERS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DRAW THE FOLLOWING CARDS:

YOU WOULD HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO YOUR 'FELLOW' HUMANS THE CONCEPT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ONLY USING WORDS THAT START WITH THE LETTERS ON THE ALIEN CARD, WHICH MIGHT LOOK LIKE:

"
OCEAN COMING QUICKLY! NO BEARS WORLDWIDE. RELISH THESE YEARS..." AND SO ON.

NOW THINGS ARE STARTING TO LOOK A BIT MORE DIFFICULT. THAT IS WHY THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO INFILTRATE HUMAN SOCIETY.

1. AS YOU ALREADY KNOW, YOU WILL HAVE A PARTNER WITH YOU. YOU EACH HAVE A DIFFERENT ALIEN CARD, BUT THE SAME EARTH CARD, SO YOU CAN WORK TOGETHER TO HELP YOUR 'FELLOW' HUMANS TO GUESS THE WORD ON YOUR EARTH CARD.

2. YOU WILL EACH GET TO 'PLANT' SOMEONE IN THE CROWD WHO KNOWS THE WORD ON YOUR HUMAN CARD. THEY CAN HELP THE OTHER HUMANS BY TELLING THEM IF THEIR GUESSES ARE GETTING 'HOTTER' OR 'COLDER'. AT THE VERY LEAST THEY CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH ENCOURAGEMENT BY LAUGHING AT YOUR FEEBLE ATTEMPTS TO BLEND IN.

3. MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU CAN SKIP LETTERS IF YOU GET STUCK. IT'S NOT A FREE FOR ALL, HOWEVER, BECAUSE WHERE IS THE FUN IN THAT. IF YOU ARE HOPELESSLY STUCK, YOU CAN SKIP TO THE NEXT LINE. IF YOU ARE ON THE BOTTOM LINE, YOU CAN DRAW A NEW CARD. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU CAN ONLY DRAW ONE NEW CARD, AND YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK TO LETTERS YOU HAVE SKIPPED!



HOW TO PLAY
1. SELECT TWO PLAYERS TO START AS THE 'ALIENS'. THEY WILL MOVE NEXT TO EACH OTHER, IDEALLY SITTING ON STOOLS OR SOMETHING TO REALLY SET THE STAGE.
2. BOTH ALIENS WILL DRAW AN 'ALIEN' CARD EACH, AND THEN DRAW A 'HUMAN' CARD BETWEEN THEM.
3. EACH ALIEN WILL CHOOSE ONE 'PLANT' EACH FROM THE REMAINING PLAYERS AND SHOW THEM BOTH THEIR 'HUMAN CARD'.
4. THE FIRST ALIEN TO SPEAK MUST BEGIN WITH 'HELLO FELLOW HUMANS...'
FROM THERE THEY CAN BEGIN TRYING TO EXPLAIN THEIR EARTH CARD TO THEIR 'FELLOW' HUMANS.
5. HUMANS CAN GUESS AS OFTEN AS THEY LIKE, AND PLANTS CAN TELL THEM IF THEIR GUESSES ARE 'HOTTER' OR 'COLDER'.
6. THE PLAYER THAT GUESSES CORRECTLY GETS THE HUMAN CARD WHICH IS WORTH A POINT AND IS A TOKEN OF THEIR AWESOMENESS.
7. THE ALIENS GET 3 TURNS. AFTER THEIR THIRD TURN IS FINISHED, THEIR PLANTS WILL BECOME THE ALIENS.
