To play Hand-to-Hand Wombat, you are each given a secret identity as a Good Wombat or a Bad Wombat, then everyone closes their eyes. Good wombats make towers; Bad Wombats attempt to mess with those towers. After the timer goes, everyone opens their eyes and discusses, argues, and votes on who they think is a Bad Wombat.
Hand-To-Hand Wombat is like thumb wrestling mixed with Mind Wrestling.
At the start of the game, you're given a role card : you'll either be a good Wombat or a bad Wombat
Game pieces are then scattered around the table.
Everyone shuts their eyes while manipulating the pieces simultaneously. The Good Wombats are attempting to build the three pyramidal towers in an orderly fashion whereas the Bad Wombats will try to cause chaos by deconstructing the towers or by ruining the pyramidal shapes.
When the timer expires, everybody stops, open their eyes, discuss what just happened and votes to cast a player out of the game.
The Good Wombats win if they successfully construct the towers before too many of their teammates have been eliminated. Otherwise the Bad Wombats win the game.
