A new game show of bluff and deception,

played by the funniest cards at the festival.


Game Rules

Each player writes down what they believe is the correct answer, or more likely, an answer that they think will "hoodwink", or fool, others. Answers (along with name of the author) are submitted to the host. The host reads out all the responses, PLUS the real answer/definition. Contestants in turn then select what they believe is the correct answer. Once all players have selected, the real answer is revealed. Points are given for fooling other players and for choosing the real and often unbelievable answer.


1 point is awarded to each player for every guess his concocted answer receives.

2 points are awarded to each player who chooses the real answer.

NO POINTS are awarded to a player who submits the correct definition.


A player may, as a bluffing trick, vote for their own answer but won't receive a point for choosing their own answer.
