It's been so exciting to hear about people playing the game all over the country. The shot above is of party hostess Jenn and her friends in North Carolina...who are apparently all thieves who didn't go to prom.
Also, we came upon two new RULE VARIATIONS that you might enjoy:
1) FAVORITE HASHTAG
If you really get into the hashtag step, you might like this. Here's how it works: After the answers have been read and the hashtags are all on the table but BEFORE the guessing starts, the person who asked the question names the favorite hashtag of the round--based on the group's reactions and also their own opinion. The player who wrote the favorite hashtag gets the question card to add to their pile as a point. Can they choose their own hashtag? Yes, if the group seems to be leaning that way. Note: to insure fairness, make sure all players get the same amount of chances to be the asker.
2) ONE IN EVERY COLOR
You might have noticed that when you opened the game, the questions were divided by color. We heard from some players that they kept them separate to play instead of shuffling them together. It gave us this idea: During set-up, place the questions in three separate decks by color. When it's a players turn, they takes one card from each deck and chooses one question from the three to pose to the group. Will it be a relatively tame BLUE ICEBREAKER or an edgy, provocative PINK SWEATBREAKER or somewhere in middle with a GREEN FRIENDMAKER?
Give 'em a whirl next time you play and let us know what you think!
