Steal the Gold from the Goblin and then get Home to win, but beware the other players will battle you with their crazy weapons like cactus, umbrella, frying pan or banana to steal the Gold for themselves.
Players take turns turning over a card from the draw pile to reveal a crazy array of weapons including handbag and plunger, and try to hold the best possible weapon ready for the battles ahead. They can hold one weapon at a time apart from the ultimate weapon, bow and arrow which the player can hold both.
If a player draws a Goblin card they battle it by throwing the dice and adding the number on the weapon card. Better the weapon, the bigger the number. The Goblin has a score of five, so the player throws the dice for the Goblin and adds five to the number on the dice. If they score more than the Goblin, they steal the Gold.
The battling begins each time a battle card is turned over, and the player chooses someone to battle using the dice. The highest score wins, with weapons, shields and injury cards taken into account. The winner can steal the Gold plus swap weapons and steal a shield. Shields reduce the opponents score in a battle by one. If a player falls down a hole or loses a battle they hold an injury card, which can be healed by drawing a Hospital card. If during the game the holder of the Gold card turns over a Home card they win.
