About

This is a new drinking game with a twist of ridiculous explanations, being absurb, all while trying to make your friends and family laugh their heads off. Make Us Laugh! is for 3 to however many crazy people you have to play with. 

There is a total of 450 cards in the game including

  • 140 Explanation Cards
  • 140 Reasoning Cards
  • 110 Game Changer Cards
  • 60 Challenge Cards
  • That's almost 20,000 different combinations you may have to explain! Not to mention 110 Game Changer Cards that will twist things up! Plus you can play with more than one deck so you never run out of cards during a game!

                                                Playing the Game!

    To begin the game, seperate the Main Pile (red background) from the Reasoning pile (black&white background). Assign each player a number starting with 1. Pour some drinks and get ready to play!

    Main Pile
    Main Pile
    Second Pile
    Second Pile

    To begin a round, each player will draw from the Main Pile which contains Explanation Cards, Game Changer Cards and Challenge Cards. There is a second pile of cards that contains only Reasoning Cards. (cards are explained in more detail below). Players will take turns going first in each round starting with Player 1 in the first round. A round will end when all players of have had a turn. The object of the game is to make other players laugh to earn points! The points are then used to give out sips to the other players. Once each player has gone, discard the cards back in to the appropriate piles.

                                               Explanation Cards

    When you draw an Explanation Card you will immediately draw a card from the second pile. The combination of the two cards will create a ridiculous sentence that you will have to explain. What you say doesn't have to be true or even make sense, you just want to the other players to laugh. Some examples of Explanation cards are: 

    • Explain that you keep giving hate speeches about Justin Bieber...
    • Explain that NASCAR turns you on so much...
    • Explain  that you know old lady pu tang ain't so bad after all...
    • Explain that you know the stripper life is for you...
    • Explain that you hate the other players so much simply...
    • Explain that Tiger Woods keeps sexting you..
    • Explain that Anne Frank was a quitter...
    • Explain that David Beckham is the real James Bond...
    • Explain that you encourage scrawny white guys to dance on you...
     

                                             Reasoning Cards

    Again, once you draw an Explanation Card from the main pile you should immediately draw a Reasoning Card from the separated pile and wait for your turn. Each player you make laugh will be a point for you. Some examples of Reasoning Cards are:

    • because Latinos keep taking your lunch money.
    • because you're joining a gang of naughty Amish mafia.
    • because of that dumb player to your left.
    • because Spongebob and Patrick are too busy getting high.
    • because your fart smells are so potent.
    • because licking the toilet bowl is part of your daily routine.
    • because the KKK won't stop trying to recruit your sister.
    • because you know you were once in a 90s boy band.
    • because you want your own show called "Little Miss Princess".
    • because you know the struggles of being white and annoying.
     
    Possible explanation to explain!
    Possible explanation to explain!

    EXAMPLE

    You could draw the combination of "Explain that Tiger Woods keeps sexting you....because the KKK won't stop trying to recruit your sister."

    So you would have to come up with a funny and possibly clever explanation such as "Well Tiger Woods is secretly a leader of the KKK and well he thinks if he keeps texting me nudes to show my sister she won't be able to resist joining him!"

    Again for each person you make laugh, you earn a point. Each point you earn is equal to a sip that you can give out to other players. Or save them for later on in the game. Give them all to the party pooper who isn't laughing or spread them out to everyone! The choice is yours! 

                                          Game Changer Cards

    You may also pick up a Game Changer card. These are used to spice things up a bit! Whenever these cards are pulled for a round they are played immediately. These cards add in restrictions that players must follow. A player may only have 1 restriction at a time. For example, if a player draws a Game Changer card in consecutive rounds they must choose which restriction they want to play with. This is to avoid a player getting stuck talking like Obama and George Bush which would be nearly impossible! Restrictions can either be cancelled out, last a few rounds or the entire game!

    Restrictions do mean that you could be explaining the combination of "Explain that you encourage scrawny white guys to dance on you...because Latinos keep taking your lunch money" in a Jamican accent. Some examples of Game Changer cards are:

    • For the next two rounds, shout big ass titties whenever someone says your name.
    • Choose a player to be your personal drink server for the game!
    • Talk with a British accent for 3 rounds.
    • Make a rule that all players including you must follow!
    • Everyone must finish their drink.
    • Free Pass-use this to eliminate a current or future restriction.
    • Talk like a pirate for 2 rounds.
    • The group creates a new name for you for the rest of the game. 
    • Clean Slate: Clears any restrictions you have.
    • You Jew! Steal 3 points from each player.
    Combination with accent restriction!
    Combination with accent restriction!

                                               Challenge Cards

    You may also pick up a Challenge card, which is a 1 on 1 challenge with another opponent with you choosing your opponent. These cards also include "Defend your Side" situations. The player that draws this card chooses which side they want to defend and their opponent must defend the other. The winner of the challenge will be determined by the neutral players based on who had the better argument or who made them laugh more. If there is a tie among the neutral players, the player that drew the card wins. The winner of the Challenge Card receives the same number points as there are players. So if you have a group of 4, the winner will receive 4 points. Some example Challenge cards are:

    • Defend: Being Helen Keller or getting your haircut by Helen Keller.
    • Defend: Being stuck in a porter potty or running out of toilet paper.
    • Defend: Being beat up by a 5th grade girl or a group of 1st grade boys.
    • Defend: Who would win a fight between Barney versus Big Bird?
    • Defend: Spooning naked with Seth Rogen or James Franco?
    • Drink Off between you and another player to finish your drink first.
    • Defend: Being stuck with Hilary Clinton or Sarah Palin.
    • Defend: Being driven around by Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles
    • Defend: Having herpes of the ass or herpes of the mouth.
     

                                              Winning the Game!

    Winning the game is left up to you, the players! A few options are the player who received the most points, gave the most sips, received the most sips, funniest player, or simply have no winner. Just enjoy the game!

                                                     Confused?

    Just a few things to remember while playing.

    • If you draw an Explanation Card, immediately draw a Reasoning Card from the secondary pile and wait for your turn.
    • If you draw a Game Changer Card, immediately read the card to the group so everyone is aware of the change. This counts as your turn for the round.
    • A player may only have 1 restriction from Game Changer Cards at a time.
    • If you draw a Challenge Card, wait until your turn and then choose your opponent.

                                                         The Goal

    Overall the goal from this Kickstarter campaign is to be able to print and ship 500 or more games. This is the bare minimum that can be printed without making the game cost a fortune for everyone. If you like the game and want to see it happen, please spread the word to everyone possible. Don't forget that you can combine decks to make the party last all night long!

                                                         Shipping

    Unfortunately, one setback is the price of shipping. So for now the game will only be available in the United States. We are brainstorming different ways to get the game out so keep checking back for updates!

    Thanks For Your Support!!!!!!

    I hope you will support us in this venture. I think this game has great potential and will be a party favorite. I plan to continue developing the game and providing expansion packs so that the party never has to end. I would love to hear feedback from backers as well. Thank you so much for taking the time to view our project! A special shout out and thank you to Kickstarter for making this even possible! Without them, there would be no game.

    Risks and challenges

    My only real issue is going to be shipping which we stated above. Hopefully a teleport machine will soon be invented and listed on Kickstarter so I can hand deliver each game but for now we are still brainstorming ways around expensive shipping.

    Also, I do apologize if anyone or everyone finds this game too offensive. I do promise it was all in good fun and we did try to take a poke at everyone possible to be fair. If we failed to make fun of someone obvoius please let me know!
