FULLY LOADED RULES & REGULATIONS:
Taboo: Free to Play
Teams of 2. Partner 1 has to get Partner 2 to guess the word on the player’s card without using the word itself or the five additional words listed on the card. The team with the most correct guesses within 3 minutes wins.
Note: You can only use words, no hand or body gestures.
Black Card Revoked: Free to Play
Individual play. This nostalgia-filled game tests your popular Black culture. The person with the most correct answers after 15 questions wins.
Note: No use of outside sources allowed (no phones, google, books, just your brains).
Jenga: Free to Play
Individual play. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller and unstable structure. The last person to successfully place a block without knocking over the tower wins.
Note: Each player has 10 seconds to decide on their piece and 20 seconds to pull and place it otherwise they are eliminated.
Uno: Free to Play
Individual play. The Uno deck consists of 108 cards with the colors red, green, blue, and yellow. Each color has zero to nine, “Skip”, “Draw Two”, and “Reverse” (the last three being “action cards”). In addition, the deck contains four each of “Wild” and “Wild Draw Four” cards. The player who gets rid of their hand first wins.
Note: No teams, peaking, or sharing of cards. Stacking is allowed for numbers, action cards, Wilds, and Draw Fours only. When stacking, you can stack a Draw Four on a Draw Two, but not a Draw Two on a Draw Four. If a player has one remaining card, they must immediately say “Uno” or risk getting called out and having to pick up 2 cards. Breaking any of the rules will also result in drawing 2 additional cards.
Spades: $20 per player; winning team receives cash prize
Teams of 2, bracket tournament. Teams go head-to-head in this Blackity Black card game until the score is 250. The first set of winners will play each other, then again, and again until one team is left as the reigning champions.
Notes: No talking across the table other than to place your bids for books. Friendly trash talking is allowed. If you are caught reneging, you lose 3 books. 10 Bags (or overs) is -100 pts. Each Book is worth 10 points. Board is 4 books. If you bid a Bubble (10 books) and are successful, you earn an additional 100 points. If you get a Boston (all books), you automatically win that round. High Card: Big Joker, Little Joker, 2 of Diamond, 2 of Spades.
