Rumble in the House box


"The house is too small. Twelve inside is way too much! Monday I'm back and I'll expell eleven!"

The landlord slammed the door on his way out, and an uneasy silence followed his leave. The residents furtively glanced at each other, no-one daring to break the silence.

"I shall be stay inside" said the kid, in his bad english.

"Not certain, I am" answered the pink Ninja.

"Oook ?" said the Ape.

The Penguin was first to attack, rushing on the Cat. Chaos and Mayhem ensued as a riot filled the house in the blink of an eye. It was clear that only one would stay and that the nice ones would be the first to go...

Living together in a small house is not easy... When the pressure is too high, it's time for a big rumble in the house! Try to keep your secret character inside the house as long as possible..


Rumble in the House is a very simple bluffing and guessing game for the whole family.

The twelve characters start in the house. Each player receives two secret character tokens. In turn, players will move one of the characters inside the house, or pick a victim and eliminate it from the game. The player who keeps his secret characters the longest in the house shall win the round. During play, the other player's moves provide clues to their identity, unless of course they bluffed by moving other characters on purpose... Everyone tries to identify and expell the other player's characters while keeping their own safe.
