Questions Answers
Three questions and the possible answers to each question are included on each card in this deck. The correct answer is always printed in bold type.
Shopping Card Deck
Each card in this deck depicts an item you might want for your wardrobe! There are eight categories: Top, Bottom, Hat, Belt, Footwear, Handbag, Jewellery, and Sunglasses. Bonus and Wild Cards are also included in this deck.

Object of the Game
The object of the game is to assemble an outfit that consists of six cards – a Top and a Bottom, plus four additional cards representing different wardrobe items.

How to Set Up the Game
Remove each deck from the packaging. Shuffle the Shopping Card deck well and place face down within easy reach of all players.

How to Start Play
Each player selects a card from the top of the Shopping Card deck. The first player to select a Free Shopping Bonus Card begins the play. Once a starting player has been determined, all cards are returned to the bottom of the Shopping Card deck.

Playing the Game
The starting player picks one card from the top of the Questions Answers deck. He/she chooses one question from the three choices on the card and reads it aloud, along with the possible answers. Moving in a clockwise direction beginning with the player to the left of the starting player, players respond to the question with the answer they believe is correct. Once all players have responded, the starting player reads the correct answer aloud.

  • Players who respond with the correct answer choose one card from the top of the Shopping Card deck. This card is not to be shown to other players.

  • If none of the players respond with the correct answer, the starting player chooses a card from the top of the Shopping Card deck.

Continuing Play
Once the first round is complete, the starting player places the card used at the bottom of the Questions Answers deck. Moving clockwise, the next player picks a card from the top of the Questions Answers deck and play continues.

Discarding Cards
If during play a player chooses a Shopping Card that contains a wardrobe item in the same category as one already in his/her hand or if the new card would result in more than six different wardrobe items (including a Top and Bottom), he/she must immediately discard the card to the bottom of the Shopping Card deck.

Exception: A player may have more than one Free Shopping Bonus Card in his/her hand at any given time during play.

Wild Cards
If a Wild Card is selected from the Shopping Card deck, it must be used at the player’s next turn. Prior to reading aloud the question and possible answers, the player shows the Wild Card to all other players and the appropriate action is taken. Once the Wild Card has been played, it is placed at the bottom of the Shopping Card deck.

Types of Wild Cards

  • BFF Time – When a player uses this card, it means only the player identified on the card may provide an answer to the question that will be asked. No other player has the opportunity to participate.

  • Fashion Faux Pas – When a player uses this card, it means all the other players must forfeit a Shopping Card. Forfeited cards are placed at the bottom of the Shopping Card deck.

  • Shopping Swap – When a player uses this card, it means that players identified on the card must swap cards. If a player doesn’t have cards to swap, he/she will receive all cards from the other player but, unfortunately, the other player will receive nothing in return. If neither player has a card to swap, the Shopping Swap card is placed at the bottom of the Shopping Card deck and play continue.

Bonus Cards

  • Free Shopping – These cards may be used to complete an outfit by substituting or filling in ‘missing’ wardrobe items.

  • Free Shopping cards may substitute for the Top and/or Bottom – both of which are required to complete an outfit. Up to six (6) Free Shopping cards may be used.

Winning the Game
The first player to collect six different wardrobe items – which MUST include a Top and a Bottom (or Free Shopping Bonus Cards in lieu) – wins the game. A player cannot win the game if he/she is holding a Wild Card or holding more than six cards representing different wardrobe items.

Number of Players:
This game is best enjoyed by 3 – 8 players. Ideal for grown up girls who love to laugh...and grown up boys who are brave enough to play!

About the Game
Most of the questions in the game About Us®, Grown Up Girls™ Edition are based on a research study conducted by Research Now on behalf of About Us Games Inc.

Research Now completed 2,171 online surveys from a random sample of Research Now panel members and About Us Games survey registrants. Subsequent to completion of the study, the data was weighted for age and marital status to replicate the actual distribution of the population of women in the United States and Canada who were 18 years of age and older at the time of survey completion (June 2013).
