No matter how many players you are, you should be divided into 2 teams: liberals and fascists.

Since you’re 6 or more people, it’s better to play in teams… One of the team members should read the phrases in the cards, and either draw or act that out, as easily as possible, so the other members can guess.

You’re either drunk, stoned, or stupid, there’s no other way!

The player who gets tagged the most keeps that card. Don’t try to collect many cards. Whoever has 7 cards, loses 🙁
