In Trix, you're trying to get other players to guess particular words while giving them only two words as a clue — and preferably only one!
Lay out nine cards on the table: three person cards (blue), three action cards (red), and three place cards (green). Look over the cards, secretly choose three of them, then give players a one- or two-word clue. If you choose "Japan", "Fight" and "Soldier", for example, you might give a clue of "Oriental Warrior". (If you present a one-word clue like "Samurai", you score a bonus.) You win points according to how many players guess your cards; the other players win points based on whether they guess correctly and on who guesses first.
