We know that “many a truth is told in jest”
The question often is: do we really want to tell the truth?!
The youngest player starts by drawing the first card from the deck. Each question has a positive and a negative option. The player chooses either option and reads the question aloud to the group.
Who is most likely to try and win a game “at any cost”?
Who is least likely to try and win a game “at any cost”?
All players cogitate and in their mind, choose the one person in the playing group they think the question relates to most. This is the person they are going to vote for in relation to this question. Each player secretly picks the Voting Chip representing the colour of the player they intend to vote for and places it face down in front of him/her. For instance, if a player thinks the question relates most to the Green player, he/she selects his/her green Voting Chip and places it face down. After all players have placed their Voting Chips, everyone turns their chips over to reveal the outcome for that question. Hilarity, dissent, debate, discussion and general mayhem ensues…
When things finally calm down, points are awarded and written down for each player. And the game goes on. Play continues in a clockwise direction with the next player choosing a Question from the deck. If all players vote for the same person, that person will get a score equal to the number of players. If a player gets the majority of the votes he/she will get two points (in case of a draw, none of the players who drew get any points). A player who receives zero votes will get one point. First player to get 20 points wins.
