Dino Bite Game Rules
The Dino Babies are in danger from the rampaging T-Rex. Can you save them all before the DINO BITES?
Each turn, players try to save a Dino Baby by lifting the giant leaf and sneaking out a Baby using the tweezers provided. But beware! If the T-Rex knows you're there, it roars out loud and lunges forward to scare you away from its next meal!

The youngest player starts by rolling the dice. The colour shown on the dice is the colour of the egg that the player has to rescue from the T-Rex nest.
The player takes the tweezers and tries to lift up the leaf as carefully as possible, to get the egg from the nest. Younger players can use their fingers instead of the tweezers.
If the T-Rex stays still and the player rescues an egg, they place the egg in front of them and pass the tweezers on to the next player (clockwise).
When the dice roll shows the side with several colours, the player can choose which egg to attempt to rescue from the nest.
If a cross is rolled, the player must miss their turn.
It's an exciting battle to rescue as many eggs as possible... but watch out! If the T-Rex realises what you're up to, he will attack you, and you are out of the game!
The game continues until there is only one player left who didn't get caught by the Dino. This player is the winner of the game!
The game may also be played by counting the number of eggs won over several rounds. The player with the most eggs at the end is the winner.
Preparing for play:
Place the Dino on the Dino nest by attaching his feet to the base: line up the slots on the inside of the feet to the white slots inside the base. Push the feet over the white slots until they line up and click into the base.
Lift up the big leaf and put the eggs inside the nest. Switch on the Dino using the on-off switch located on the bottom of the base. Push the Dino backwards until he holds in position and let the game begin!
Installing the batteries:
Using a screwdriver, loosen the screw on the underneath of the Dino base until the battery compartment cover can be removed.
Study the + and - markings inside the battery compartment.
Insert 2 AA (LR6) Alkaline Batteries (not included) making sure that the '+' and '-' ends of the batteries are aligned with the '+' and '-' markings inside the compartment.
Replace the battery compartment door and tighten the screw with a screwdriver. Do not over-tighten.
ADULT SUPERVISION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN CHANGING BATTERIES.
