Game Design and Contents
Can Yelling, Nail-Biting and Holding One’s Breath be a Fun Family Pastime?
It sure can when you're playing UPSET™, the exciting new game that combines chance with strategy. Imagine a game that goes from great moments of family interaction to dynamic party challenges; imagine a fast-paced game for two or an ingenious party in the making — all in one box! The object of this addictive game is to score points with the dice (10,000 to win, 5,000 short game) and strategically use the UPSET cards to beat your opponents. Players start with 25 uPcentS (chips) — ten for the pot and 15 to play with. It's simple. As players' scores rise, they win chips. If they don't score, they lose them. And if they go into debt they are out - ouch! Also, if a player rolls UPSET everyone else must restart from scratch - ouch again! UPSET cards combined with the uPcent chips make this game a roller coaster ride of suspense and elation. Who will win? It's anyone's game until the last minute!

Above all UPSET™ spells F-U-N!

MSRP: $29.99
