Playing Yeti in My Spaghetti 

On your turn you will have to try to remove one noodle from the top of the bowl while avoiding knocking the Yeti into the bowl. You can choose which noodle you wish to try to remove. You can use any method you prefer to try and remove the noodle from the bowl. This can include sliding, slipping, pushing, lifting, etc.

Removing a Noodle
The current player has decided to remove this noodle on the left side of the bowl.

When trying to remove a noodle you must follow two rules.

Once you touch a noodle you must remove that noodle. You are not allowed to touch different noodles to test how easy they will be to remove.

You may use both of your hands to remove a noodle. Only one hand can touch the noodle at a time though.

What happens next depends on if you successfully remove the noodle you chose.

Successfully Removing A Noodle

If you successfully remove a noodle and the Yeti does not fall into the bowl, you have succeeded.

Successfully Take Noodle in Yeti in My Spaghetti
This player has successfully removed a noodle from the bowl without knocking the yeti into the bowl. The next player has to choose a noodle to try and remove from the bowl.

Play passes to the player on your left.

Yeti Falls into Bowl

Eventually a player will remove a noodle which will lead to the Yeti falling into the Bowl. If the Yeti falls into the bowl while you are still moving the noodle or shortly after you have removed it (before the next player takes their turn), you have failed to remove the noodle.

The Yeti is only considered to have fallen into the Bowl when it is touching the bottom of the Bowl. If it is still hanging from a noodle, it is considered to not have fallen into the Bowl yet.

End Game
The yeti is close to touching the bottom of the bowl. As it is not touching the bottom of the bowl though, the next player has to take their turn.

Once the Yeti falls into the Bowl, the game ends immediately. The last player to successfully remove a noodle from the Bowl without knocking the Yeti into the Bowl, wins the game.

Winning Yeti in My Spaghetti
The current player pulled out a noodle which lead to the yeti falling into the bottom of the bowl. The player who successfully removed the previous noodle wins the game.
