Draw 10 cards from the shuffled pile of 540 word cards. Each card has five related words around the edge so you have lots of choices from which to form your sentence. Each card is worth points so use as many cards as possible.

Your goal is to make a grammatically correct sentence, even if the meaning is a bit unusual, that the other players will accept.


When everyone is finished making sentences, the other players vote on if your sentence works grammatically. If you get a thumbs up, add up the number points on the cards to get your total.

My sentence is: John Wayne and Odysseus largely stink. Would you give me a thumbs up on my sentence?

The first player to 200 wins the game.

To Laugh More:

We laughed so much at all our weird sentences! I think it would be even more fun to add in another themed deck to the mix and see how crazy your sentences can really get. Try the NASA deck or the Sci-Fi / Fantasy deck or even a Sports deck.
