About the game
In this 6-player game, one player takes on the role of an Athlete who is being interviewed by three tricky Journalist. However, the Athlete is exhausted after a hard training session and is fed up with all the interviews, and wants to get rid of the Journalists as soon as possible. The other two players are Coaches who stand behind the Journalists and make motions, helping the Athlete decide what to say. The Journalists have to guess what topics the athlete is talking about.
• 6 Character cards: 3 Journalists, 1 Athlete and 2 Coaches.
• 6 Topic cards (two of each Journalist color).
• 91 Phrase cards.
• 3 Markers (for Journalists).
Goal of the game:
Over the course of 6 rounds, each player will score points based on how well they do their current in role. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
1. Each player randomly draws one Character card.
2. All players now take their places. Journalists sit opposite the Athlete. the Coaches stand behind the Journalists so that the Journalists do not see them at all but the Athlete does.
3. Each Journalist takes the Topic cards of their color and a marker.
The Coaches shuffle the Phrase deck and take one card at random. They both look at it without showing it to the other players. Each Phrase card contains two topics, and a more specific phrase for each topic. Without saying anything, the Coaches must agree which one of them will do which phrase (they cannot choose the same).
The Athlete then starts a 1-minute timer, and the Coaches begin to motion their own phrases, keeping silent at all times. They are trying to get the Athlete to say their phrase out loud.
Meanwhile, the Journalists should be asking the Athlete questions, as if they were conducting an interview. They should take turns asking questions and not interrupting each other. The Athlete should try to answer these questions, as if he or she were being interviewed. The Athlete may add something else to these descriptions and interpret the Coaches’ motions however they want.
While asking questions, each Journalist is also trying to work out what two topics the Coaches are describing to the Athlete. Each Journalist has 2 Topic cards, each containing the full list of all possible topics. When they think they have worked out which topics a Coach is describing, they should mark their card and place it face down on the table,
