  1. Players take turns to turn over a card from the pile.
  2. They work out either
  • how many black dots on the card
  • how many more black dots to fill the card.
  1. If the number of black dots matches a number on their Party Time Board, the player covers the number with a counter.
  2. If a player already has the number covered they must miss that turn.
  3. Only one counter is played at each turn.

The first person to fill up their Party Time card is the winner!
