About

Are you at a party where everyone is being just a little too nice? Break out The Shade of Life and shut that shit down. It's a party game for messy individuals, bitchy civilians and attention whores... (quiet whores are also encouraged to play).
__________________________________________________________________

HOW YOU PLAY

The game is simple. Gather round; shuffle the cards; stack them in one deck face down. The second to last person to have had sex most recently draws a card first. Make sure to go clockwise; each person drawing a card when it is their turn. When the deck is gone, whoever has the most points win. Be clever and have fun.

YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS

CATEGORIES

There are four types of cards in the deck: "Life", "Shade", "The T" and "Wildcard".

Life: Perform an act in which you will be both dehumanized and mortified.

Shade: You finally have permission to say and do some disrespectful shit.

The T: Speak the truth about all questions or your card may literally be pulled. (see "The Whole T" below).

Wildcard: This is where you find out who wants to win the most.

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk with this project. Let's not kid ourselves here. A deck of playing cards is all we have. Doesn't get much simpler than that. We are working with a top notch printer and our game will be delivered to you on time or I will give you my personal address and you can kick my ass for free.

Our challenge (if you choose to accept it) will be to get people to actually play. Good luck to us both. Godspeed!
