Player А: I've seen Prince Charles!

Player B: Where did you see him?

Player А: In London, near Buckingham palace.

Player C: Who was he with?

Player А: He was with his wife.

Player D: What were they doing?

Player А: They were walking towards the palace.

and so on.

After everyone has asked his/her question to Player A, the participants take it in turns to say if they believe the 'Munchausen' or not. Then Player A says if his/her statement is true or false. As a result, the 'Munchausen' gets as many points as the number of players, fooled by him. The game lasts as long as all the players act as a famous baron. The best 'Munchausen' is the player to get the most points.
