How to Play “Our Founding Fathers” The Game

  1. One player is chosen as the “Answer Checker.” 
  2. Every other player chooses a game piece and places it on START. 
  3. Player 1 spins the spinner to determine which space to land on. They draw a Question Card and answer the question if there is a flag. 
  4. If the answer is correct, the player stays in the space until their next turn. If the answer is incorrect, the player moves back one space and waits until their next turn to draw either a Question Card or Fact Card. 
  5. If the player lands on a space marked “Fact Card,” they draw a Fact Card, read it and follow the directions stated. The first winner is the person to reach the FINISH space by spinning the exact number to land there is the winner.
