The game can be played by three or more players, one of whom is chosen to represent Wilfred Pickles and ask the questions.
‘‘Wilfred Pickles” then divides the complete pack into three piles, Easy, Medium, and Hard questions.
He then takes the first card from the Easy pack, covers the strip at the bottom, and shows the picture to the first player on his left.
If the player gives the answer correctly, "Wilfred Pickles” gives him the card, if incorrect the card is placed on one side and not used again during that game.
“Wilfred Pickles" then takes the second card from the Easy pack and shows it to the next player, and so on until all the Easy cards have been used.
The same thing is then done with the Medium and the Hard questions pack. When all the cards are used, the players total up the points on the card they have been given for correct answers and the winner then becomes “Wilfred Pickles" for the next game.
If any player answers a question out of turn, he must forfeit five points
