Hidden Card

Look at the envelope and work out what is on the card hidden inside!

The most difficult envelopes are worth 30 points and the easiest 10 points.

If the list has only one column, the hidden content will be displayed as an anagram or as a jumbled image.

At the start of each new game, you will be asked to click on four 10 point envelopes (the easiest) and four 15 Point envelopes (medium difficulty).

The four 20 point envelopes will then be allocated automatically.

Tip: If you want points to be allocated at random, simply click the ‘Auto’ button.

You then set the number of teams.

In the example below, I chose to play the game with four teams.

I can use the numbered tabs to give each team a unique name if I choose to.

When you are ready, press the ‘Begin Game’ button.

The player or team to choose the first envelope is displayed in the panel at the bottom of the screen.

Note: Turn order is chosen at random at the start of each round. The same team will not always have the first choice of envelopes.

In this example, Kim’s Team choose a 10 point envelope: Spain.

They think that the card hidden inside the envelope has the word Madrid on it.

We can click the envelope to open it and check.

They were correct! We click the green button and they win the points!

Had they answered incorrectly, the red button would be pressed and the points shared amongst the opposing teams.

Choosing a 20 point envelope offers a greater reward, but the risk of answering incorrectly is greater.

The player or team with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
