    -description from the back of the box

    The games are:

    Charlie's Golden Ticket: Five golden ticket cards are on the table, and each player starts with one number card. On their turn a player draws a number card, and if they can combine the numbers in their hand to equal a golden ticket card, they claim that card. The 5 table cards are replenished when they run out, and the first to get 4 tickets wins.

    Charlie's in a Spin: The number cards are laid out to form a spiral playing track. Players start their pawns on the start card. On their turn they roll a die, move that many spaces, and say what the product of the new card's number and their die roll is; if incorrect they go back. The first to reach the center card by an exact roll wins.

    Closest to Zero: Players start with 2 cards in hand. Yellow numbers are positive, purple numbers are negative. Players can request an additional card up to 3 times, then the player whose cards total closest to zero wins a golden ticket card. The first to have 4 tickets wins.
