Playing Loaded Questions Party

To begin your turn you will take the top card from the stack of cards. You will read the question matching the color of the space that your pawn is currently on. If you are on the Start space, you can choose any of the questions on the card (except for Party Foul/Favors).

Determining question based on current space
The red player is on an orange space. For their round as the judge they will use the orange question.

Should you land on a multi-colored space, you can choose any of the questions on the card. If there is a Party Foul or Favor on the card, you must first take the corresponding action before you choose one of the other three questions.

Choosing the question for the current round.
The blue player is one a multi-color space. First they will handle the Party Foul! section of the card. They can then choose either the blue, yellow, or purple question.

If the space matching your current space color corresponds to a Party Foul/Favor space, you will take a special action. See the Party Fouls and Favors section below for more details.

Once you have read the question for the current turn, all of the other players will write down an answer on their answer sheet. You can write down whatever answer you want. You can provide a serious answer or a silly answer you think will get a laugh out of the other players.

Reading the question for the current round
The judge for this round is on an orange space. For this round the players will use the question: “What is your resolution for tomorrow?”
Submitting an answer in Loaded Questions Party
One of the players decided to submit the answer “to sleep til noon” for the question about what their resolution is for tomorrow.

Revealing the Submissions

When all of the players have written down an answer, the player to the right of the judge collects all of the answer sheets. They will mix up the sheets. To remind the judge of the question, the player first reads the question. Then they will read one answer at a time. The reader and the rest of the players should not react in any way that would indicate who wrote each answer.

Considering the answers submitted for the current round.
These four answers were submitted for the current round. The judge needs to decide which answer they like the most, and who they thought wrote each answer.

After hearing all of the answers the judge has to pick one answer that they thought was best. They can use whatever criteria they want to determine what they think was the best answer.

Choosing the best answer in Loaded Questions Party
The current judge decided the “to sleep til noon” was the best answer provided this round.

They will then try to guess which player submitted each of the answers.

Scoring a Round

After the judge has picked their favorite answer and guessed who wrote each answer, the player to their right reveals who wrote each answer.

The judge moves their pawn forward one space for each answer they correctly assigned to the right player.

The player that submitted the favorite answer gets to move their pawn forward two spaces.

Scoring in Loaded Questions Party
The judge (green) correctly guessed who provided two of the answers. They receive two points for their correct guesses. The judge picked the orange player’s answer, so they also score two points.

Play then moves clockwise. The player to the left of the current judge becomes the judge in the next round.

Party Fouls and Favors

Occasionally the question corresponding to the color of your current space matches a Party Foul or Favor. These can move players pawns forward or backwards on the gameboard.

After you follow what is written, you will choose one of the other three questions on the card.

Party Foul!
If the Party Foul! is used from this card, all of the players with even numbered birthdays lose one space. The judge also picks another of the questions on the card to play.
