Players are attempting to do just what the name suggests — shove their coffins away from them — but they can move a coffin only when the conditions are right.

To begin shuffle the coffin cards, then deal 4 face up to each player; each coffin card features a charming-looking vampire as well as a symbol (bat, moon, skull) on a yellow or purple circle. A garlic card is placed in the center, and the remaining cards stacked to the side.

On a player's turn, they roll both the color die and symbol die. If the combination of dice matches a coffin card in front of them, slap the garlic card quicker then anyone else; if you're the first, you turn that coffin card face down; if that coffin card was already face down, show it to others, set it aside, then draw a new coffin card and place it face up with the other cards. If you slap the garlic first when someone else has a matching vampire, then you stop that player from advancing.

If the exclamation mark pops up instead of a color, then what you do depends on the symbol: With the bat, you want to slap the garlic first to turn over or clear any one of your cards; with the moon, you can slap first to switch two cards held by other players; with the skull, you don't want to slap at all!

Any time that you slap the garlic when you shouldn't, you turn over one of your face down cards; if you have no face down cards, then you must add a new card to those you already have.

Whoever clears four coffins first wins!
