9 Erasmus students in 1991, from all Europe, sharing a flat together in Eastern Europe were bored. They couldn’t agree on what to watch on TV, so they invented a weird twisted game : Madness, Tears & Passion.
The legend says that the game became so popular around students that a tournament was organized over three days. Over 50 students where expelled from their respective universities. The argument was that they downgraded human dignity…
The game got lost, until a guy named Raoùl jailed in Tijuana, explained the game to a guy named Consuèlo. The game became known again and it’s now brought to you by some weird and twisted f***ed up minds that are as twisted as the minds that invented it.
How to play ?
- Gather your sh*t, sit in a circle, get comfy, display the deck in the center. If you use the playing board, gather around the playing board, display the deck in the center. Next to the deck, display the "Vile & Twisted" cards deck next to the main deck.
- The ugliest player starts first (refer to special rules for advantages and special treatments)
- The player on the left of player 1 picks up the first card and reads it. Player 1 has to answer the card correctly or do a dare to get the points on the card.
- The next player on the left plays and so on.
- Each card has a score from -10 to +10. When you play with the playing board you advance your chip accordingly to the score you obtained. You have to arrive exactly at the center of the board to win. When playing without the playing board, simply add your cards to be the first to exactly get 69.
Game Variant : The Shuffle Madness
- Shuffle the Regular Deck and the "Vile & Twisted" cards deck together.
- Every time a "Vile & Twisted" card appears, the last one to slap his own face (if sitting) or his butt (if standing) has to do what's on the card.
Because it wouldn’t be madly fun without a bit of craziness, special rules can give advantages to vicious people. Read carefully the Rules Booklet to fully enjoy the game…
"It's like playing Mario Kart with uno cards in a psychiatric hospital" - Enrico 1982-2017

Uchronia themed cards : Answer a question relative to a slightly different world (ie: Question: If Staline had won the war alone, how many country would there be in Europe? Answer : There would be no fu**ing Europe...)
Vile & Twisted card : You can pick this card to avoid to loose or to skip your first card. But be careful, what will be asked has to be done...
