In order to play the game, you must first set the utensil pieces in one of the four starting patterns. Then turn on the Hexbug Nano with the on/off switch located on the underside of the device. Place him in the center of the board and then begin taking turns rolling the die. The die has a different utensil (spoon, fork, knife) on each side and the last side has a question mark. When you take a turn you roll the die and depending on which utensil you get, you can turn one of the corresponding pieces on the game board to direct the bug into your trap along the side of the game board. If you get a question mark, you may choose whichever piece you’d like to play. Whenever you “trap” the bug, you get a bug token and the board must be reset to the starting position. The first person to collect 5 bug tokens wins the game.
