HOW TO PLAY
For 2+ players
Ages 4 and up
1 Gooey Louie, 1 Base, 12 Gooeys,
1 Rubber Band, 1 Jumping Brain,
1 Die, Instructions
Insert Louie’s head into his base. (fig. 1)
Take one of the longest gooeys and knot the rubber band around the wide end of the gooey. In later versions of the game, we included looped gooeys that can be used in place of a long gooey and rubber band for easier attachment to the trigger. (fig. 2)
Open Gooey Louie’s nose door and either attach the looped gooey into the groove in the trigger or attach the end of the rubber band with the gooey to the trigger. (fig. 3)
Place all of the other gooeys inside the nose area.
Open Louie’s head by pushing down on the trigger while pulling up on the
top of his head. Place his brains inside his head with the brain side up. Hold the brain down as you close his head.
Push Louie’s eyes in and close the nose door.
Note: If Louie’s head won’t stay closed, open the nose door and reposition the gooeys so that they are not pushing up against the trigger.
NOW YOU’RE READY TO PICK A WINNER!
To pick gooeys out of Louie’s nose without making
him sneeze his brains out.
PLAYING THE GAME:
The youngest player starts the game by rolling the
die to see how many gooeys to pick from Louie’s nose. Play continues counter-clockwise.
Caution: Please instruct children to keep their faces at least 12 inches away from Louie’s head to avoid being struck by the jumping brain.
One of the gooeys will make Louie sneeze his brains out! Replace his brain, push in his eyes, and return all of the gooeys to his nose to play another hilarious game.
ALTERNATE GAME PLAY
For those who believe that there absolutely, positively MUST be a winner, we offer the following “other” way to play…
The youngest player starts the game by rolling the die to see how many gooeys to pick from Louie’s nose. Play continues counter-clockwise.
As soon as a player picks the wrong gooey, Louie will sneeze and his brains and eyes will pop out!!
The player who caused Louie to sneeze his brains out is now out of the game. The remaining players reset the game for another round by following the set up instructions, including putting back all of the gooeys that were picked in the previous game. Keep playing rounds until there is just one player left.
The last player remaining after all other players have been knocked out of the game is THE WINNER!
