  • One player plays as the nurse. The other plays as Capulet.
  • Place the board between both players. The nurse places the 6 characters anywhere on the board, but each space can only have one character.
  • Then, she chooses 2 characters to be Romeo and Juliet, disguised. They are placed down secretly. The other characters are returned to the box.
  • Take the 15 pair tiles and place them next to the board. They are the possible combinations of Romeo and Juliet.


  • On each round Capulet moves first. The players take turns to move an active character onto any empty space with their abilities. Then they flip it to the passive side.
  • After all characters are moved, the nurse reports whether the lovers are in the same area. There are two areas on the board: the perimeter and the center. Capulet then eliminates all impossible pairs.
  • After each round, all characters are flipped back to active.

End of the Game

  • If Capulet eliminates pairs such that only one possible pair is left, he finds the lovers and wins.
  • Otherwise, if seven rounds have passed and at least two pairs are left, the nurse successfully hid the lovers for seven days and wins.
