Special Rules

Hand Size and Damage

Each player starts with 0 damage and a maximum hand size of 7. (Players start the game with 5 cards in hand, as normal.) Each point of damage a player takes reduces their maximum hand size by 1. Any player who takes 7 damage loses and is removed from the game.

Drawing cards

A player who has fewer than 2 cards in his or her hand at the start of his or her draw stage draws 2 cards instead of 1.

Card Types

Reactions

Reactions are played from your hand to the discard pile, like Actions. The text of each Reaction describes when it can be played.

Surprises

Surprises are not played from your hand. They take effect when revealed by a card such as Ding Dong Ditch or Prank Call.

Challenges

Challenges are like Things. Any player may use a Challenge for some sort of reward. After a challenge is attempted (but not necessarily accomplished), it is destroyed.
