1.To start take a board of faces and flip up the faces so they are standing.

2. Next each player must draw a face card out of the deck. 3. After this the 2 players take it in turns to ask yes or no questions. If your opponent answers with a yes you may ask another question. If they answer with no it is their turn to ask you.
