8 common or proper names - the Platypus cards - are put face up in front of all the players. The Guides know the card the Explorers have to find and guess. For this, they give clues in the form of Adjectives cards which best define the Platypus for them. These clues are chosen from their 4-card hand. With each new clue, the Explorers eliminate 1 or 2 names that do not correspond to the given definition. The goal is to find the Platypus while leaving visible the card matching the target name. A game can end in two ways: when the team obtains its 4th Success - in this case the players beat the game - or when the team eliminates the Platypus.

DEFINE THE PLATYPUS: Acid? Dangerous? Annoying? A car saleswoman! Edible? Quick? Flexible? Captain America — or an ostrich? In Platypus, players cooperate to gradually eliminate bad words in order to find and identify the "platypus" through their adjective cards.

COOPERATIVE WORD GAME: To set up, eight common words or proper names — the "platypus" cards — are placed face up in front of all the players. The guides know the card that the explorers must guess, and to help the explorers, they give clues in the form of adjective cards that best define the platypus for them.

A CHALLENGING GAME OF DEDUCTION: Each guide has a hand of four clue cards, and after each new clue, the explorers must eliminate one or two cards that they think don't match what's being defined by the clues. If the explorers eliminate the platypus, then everyone loses; if they succeed four times, however, then the platypus will stand alone and everyone wins.

FUN PARTY GAME FOR GAME NIGHT: A hilarious party game with a lot of player interaction, Platypus is full of wacky descriptions and definitions that will keep players laughing. With 278 cards, no two games will ever be quite the same.

NUMBER OF PLAYERS AND AVERAGE PLAYTIME: This fun family game is made for 2 to 8 players and is suitable for ages 8 and older. Average playtime is approximately 30 minutes.
