How to Play. When everyone is ready, a typical game might start something like this:

Player А: I wish to go to the sea!

You: Why?

Player A: Because I feel tired.

You: Why?

Player A: Because I work a lot.

You: Why?

Player A: Because I need more money.

You: Why?

Player A: Because I plan to buy a car.

You: Why?

Player A: Because I hate public transport!

You: Why?

If Player A cannot answer your question, they get five points by the number of their replies. This time, it is their turn to ask Player B, and so on. The game continues around the circle as long as all the wishes have been revealed. The player, who gets the most points, becomes the winner of the game.
