OVERVIEW OF ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TREX
This family-friendly game is great for those individuals that are bad at charades. Players will complete actions, based off of their Number Cards! Their cards describe on what level they will complete their actions, one to ten!
Players will attempt to match with another player on their level! If they succeed Good Tokens are won, if they are unsuccessful, Bad Tokens are won, decreasing points. The player with the most points at the end of the game, wins!
Divide the Action Cards by color and organize them into three different piles. Flip the top card on each of the Action Card piles and put them in the Playing Area. Next, shuffle the Number Cards and deal one card to each player, face down. The rest of the cards can be placed face down, creating the Draw Pile.
Separate the tokens into two different piles on the center of the table, one good pile and one bad pile. The number of tokens used depends on the number of players

Any remaining tokens may be returned to the box. The box top on the middle of the table. The game is ready to begin.
The faceup Action Cards that are found within the Play Area outline the outlandish actions that players must perform. Players examine at their number cards, noting the color. The action that each player must complete is found on the Action Card that matches the color of their number card.
The number on your card determines at what level you are to perform the action. Every player plays the game at the same time meaning nobody gets their own turn.
For players to earn points, they must attempt to find another player that has the same value on their Number Card. If a player suspects a match, they must hand them the card face down. The other player, if in agreement, will also present their Number Card face down. Both players will flip the cards simultaneously, and if they match points are earned.
If it is an exact match, meaning the numbers are exactly the same, each player will earn two Good Tokens. If it is a close match, within one number of each other, each player will earn one Good Token. If it is not a match, each player will get one Bad Token. Players will then discard their Number Cards and draw a new Number Card.
If a player is presented with a card, and they believe it is not a match, then they may simply ignore the player and continue gameplay. Gameplay continues until one pile of tokens is exhausted. Points are then added!
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when one of the piles of Tokens has been completely exhausted. Each player will calculate their points in their Personal Score Pile. The player with the most points wins the game!
