How to Play the Fancy Nancy Board Game


Fancy Nancy is the main character in a series of children's books created by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. Little Nancy is all about being fancy, and tries to express it in everything she does. Her favorite color is fuchsia because it's "a fancy way of saying purple." Nancy sees it as her duty to teach others the fancy lifestyle, sharing bits like "yellow is plain; gold is fancy." The popularity of the Fancy Nancy character has spawned a series of board games. One of the more popular games in the series is the Fancy Nancy Posh Bedroom Game, for children ages 5 and older.

Things You'll Need

  • Fancy Nancy Posh Bedroom Board Game
  • 2 to 4 players

Setting Up

  • Distribute game boards to each player. Make sure each player has flipped up the colored tabs on the game boards revealing the picture of Nancy's bedroom.

  • Shuffle the three types of game cards -- purple "Let's Get Fancy" cards, pink "Accessories" cards and blue "Oops" cards -- into a single deck.

  • Deal each player four cards face down and place the remaining cards face down in the center of the game area to serve as the "draw" pile.

Let's Play

  • Draw a card from the pile. You may either play a card or discard one into the discard pile. Playing a purple card allows you to start "decorating" the room on your game board on your next turn. Playing a pink card on top of a previously played purple card allows you to roll the multicolored die.

    Use the blue cards to block your opponents. Pick one of your opponents and place the card on top of their pile. They cannot continue playing until they play a purple card.

    Note: You cannot roll the die if you have not first played a purple card.

  • Roll the die after laying down a pink card. Match the color on the die to a color on your game board. Flip down the tab with the matching color to end your turn. If you roll a color matching a tab that has already been flipped down, then your turn is over. If the die lands on the picture of Fancy Nancy then you may flip down the tab of your choice.

  • Win the game by being the first to flip down all of the colored tabs on your game board.
