How To Play
Object of the game:Win the most cards by devising the least desirable condition to other players' superpowers, occupations, lifetime supplies, and fulfilled dreams.
Setup:Each player should have a whiteboard and marker. The Stipulations deck and Bonus deck should be placed at the center of the playing area.
Game Play: Select a player to go first as the judge. The judge draws a card from the Stipulations deck, decides which of the four options to announce, and reads the selection out loud to the group. All other players write a stipulation (or limiting condition) to the announcement.
A stipulation must (1) make the announcement less desirable, (2) be relevant to the announcement, and (3) not be repetitive with stipulations the player wrote in previous rounds. For example, to stipulate a player who announces "I can fly!" a player might write one of the following: "only downward," "with non-retractable and non-removable 50-foot wings," "can't land without breaking a bone," etc.
Once all stipulations are written, the judge draws and reveals the top bonus card while the player to the right of the announcer collects the stipulations. That player reads the anonymous stipulations out loud, and the judge must decide which stipulation they would LEAST want added to their announced superpower, occupation, lifetime supply, or fulfilled dream. The judge can disregard any stipulations that do not meet the 3 stipulation conditions.
The judge must also select which stipulation earns the bonus card based on the card details. The players then reveal which stipulations they wrote and the cards are awarded to the winners of the round. One player can win both cards in a single round.
The player to the left then starts the next round as judge by drawing the top Stipulations card and making a new announcement. Play continues until all players have gone twice. The player with the most earned cards at the end wins!
