The Magic Tooth Fairy (with cards) Game Rules
OBJECT OF THE GAME
To be the first player to swap the 4 teeth in their "mouth" for 4 golden coins.
PREPARING TO PLAY
Take the Magic Bed and the thirteen gold coins. Slip the thirteen coins, one at a time, into the slot at the top of the bed head. Next take the Tooth Fairy Wand and put it into one of the slots at the sides of the bed head.
Each player take a mouth and four teeth. Turn the mouth over and press the "root" of each tooth over the circular lugs behind the lips. Stand the mouth up in front of you.
Unfold the board. Put the Magic Bed in the middle of the playing board. Shuffle the Wobbly Tooth cards and place them face down on the Wobbly Tooth Space at one corner of the board. Each player choose a playing piece and place it on the space nearest to you. It can be any space.
PLAYING THE GAME
The youngest player starts. Play moves to the left throughout the game. Spin the spinner on the bed and move your playing piece clockwise round the board by the number indicated. Follow the instructions on the space your playing piece lands on.
There are three kinds of playing space on the board: Wobbly Tooth, Go To Bed and Spin Again. They are explained below.
WOBBLY TOOTH SPACE
When you land on this space pick up the top card from the Wobbly Tooth card pile and follow the instructions on the card.
There are 5 sorts of Wobbly Tooth card:
Pull out a tooth from your mouth and hook it over the edge of the backpack on the back of your playing piece (as shown). It is then the end of your turn.
- If you have not already got a tooth in your backpack pull out a tooth from your mouth and hook it over the edge of your backpack.
- Immediately move your playing piece to the next GO TO BED space. Lift up the Magic Bed's pillow, put the tooth under it and put the pillow back down again.
- Take the Tooth Fairy wand and push it firmly down into the slot behind the top of the bed's headboard. Put the wand back into it's slot. Now lift up the pillow and take out the glittering golden coin that has appeared under the pillow. You turn is now over.
Can you summon up the courage to pull out your wobbly tooth? Spin the spinner. If it points to 1 or 2 you DO have the courage to pull your tooth out. Pull a tooth from your mouth and put it on your backpack. It is then the end of your turn. If the spinner points to a 3 or 4 you did NOT have the courage to pull your tooth out. That is the end of your turn.
You have pulled out a tooth but oops... you have lost it. Lay the OLI card on the table in front of you. Pull a tooth from your mouth and put it on the OLI card. That is your turn over.
The next time (during a normal turn) that you spin a 1 you "find" your tooth. Put the OLI card at the bottom of the Wobbly Tooth card pile and put your tooth in your backpack. If there is already a tooth in your backpack keep your tooth until your backpack is empty.
After you have found your lost tooth move your playing piece one space (the 1 you have just spun) and follow the instructions on that space.
If that space is a Wobbly Tooth space and you pick up a "Tooth Comes Out" card you do NOT take a tooth from your mouth as you already have the "found" tooth in your backpack.
No amount of waggling will make your tooth come out this time. That is the end of your turn.
GO TO BED SPACE
If you have a tooth in your backpack from a previous turn, lift up the Magic Bed's pillow, put the tooth under it and put the pillow back down again. Plunge the wand and take your golden coin (as previously described). If you do not have a tooth in your backpack your turn is over.
SPIN AGAIN SPACE
When you land on this space, spin again and move your playing piece by the number spun. Follow the instructions on this new space.
The first player to swap all four teeth for golden coins is the winner.
SETTING UP THE MAGIC BED TO PLAY ANOTHER GAME
When you have completed a game and want to play another one you need to set up the Magic Bed again. To do this you tip the bed over and release the cover of the under-bed compartment. Empty out all the teeth and put them back into the mouths. Put any golden coins used in the previous game back into the slot at the top of the bed head. Check that the Tooth Fairy Wand is in its slot at the side of the headboard. The Magic Bed is now ready for another magical round of tooth losing, gold finding fun.
