The Rules Of Who's Conscious?

The board game about Roots and Culture: The Who’s Conscious? board game is designed to test and improve a player’s comprehensive knowledge of people of colour achievements in sport, music, entertainment and cultural/historical matters.

Who’s Conscious? Who is the most conscious amongst your family and friends? Here is a game to find out!

RULES: The different colours for the movement cells around the board each represents the type of question to be answered, if landed upon. Red represents music questions. Yellow represents entertainment questions. Green represents sports questions. Black represents historical/cultural questions. This board game accommodates a minimum of 2 players and maximum of 4 players. A player may be an individual or team.

The purpose of each player is as follows: The first player to land on the African continent and answer a Cultural/Historical question correctly WINS and is the CONSCIOUS ONE. Start by placing the sailing yachts on their coloured Start positions, move as quickly as possible to the cells on the edge of the board; turn anti-clockwise; travel all the way round the edge of the board in the direction of the cell which you started (marked Start); throw the correct number on the dice to land on the African continent and then answer a Cultural/Historical question correctly yourself (no challenge permitted). 

Or alternatively...

Place the sailing yachts on their coloured Start positions, move as quickly as possible to the cells on the edge of the board; turn anti-clockwise; travel all the way round the edge of the board returning to the cell on which you started (marked Start); then answer a Cultural/Historical question correctly yourself (no challenge permitted) in order to land on Africa; the first player to do this WINS land is the CONSCIOUS ONE.

The order of play is as follows:

This is determined at the outset by a throw of the dice; the player with the highest score and the player with the lowest score then throw first and last respectively thereafter. Each player will in turn throw the single dice and move his sailing yacht along the movement cells accordingly. He will then be given a chance to correctly answer a question. The question will be determined by the colour of the cell on which he landed. If the player chooses to answer the question himself then it will be read to him by the player immediately to his right. If he answers the question correctly he wins another throw of the dice, moves along accordingly and then has another chance to answer a question and if the answer is correct he is able to throw the dice again until an incorrect answer is given.

The option of the dice-holder is as follows:
The player whose turn it is has the choice of either answering the question himself or challenging the player whose turn it is next to answer on his behalf; if the player being challenged incorrectly answers the question then the player who made the challenge has another throw of the dice, moves his sailing yacht accordingly and then has the choice to answer a question or challenge the same player. The only time the dice-holder is allowed to read out a question is when he is challenging another to answer on his behalf. If the player being challenged correctly answers the question he then begins his turn proper, bringing the turn of the previous dice-holder to an end. Note: A challenge cannot be refused.

Written Instructions:

There are instructions on some movement cells which must be obeyed if landed upon.
These instructions are self-explanatory in the main, but instructions such as “chill-out” means a player is to miss a go and so, is forced to remain on that cell until it is his turn once again.

Personalise your game:

200 blank cards, 50 for each category are included, allowing you to personalise your game by creating your own questions and answers, to test your friends and family. By doing so, no Who’s Conscious? board games will be the same, unless we all share the same consciousness.
