The aim of The Noodle Game is to score the most points by picking up various value noodles from the box and placing them on your place without dropping them on the table. At the start of the game, all players pick up their chopsticks, with the tips remaining in contact with their plates (the starting position). The youngest player starts and play continues clockwise. Each player, in turn, uses their chopsticks to try to pick up ONE noodle from the box and place in on their plate. Once the bottom end of the noodle leaves the box, the other players can lift their chopsticks from their plates and attempt to steal the noodle and place it on their own plate. Once any part of a noodle touches a plate, it is considered safe and cannot be stolen.
