To begin, a player is chosen to become the first Sender. There is no rule regarding this. They will draw a card from the top of the Where stack, thus choosing the location of their embarrassment. They will place this card in front of them, face up, allowing all the other players to see it. This card decides which social media platform they have to post on.
All other players will then place a What card in front of the Sender. The Sender will then choose which What card they can actually complete and complete the action. The Sender will receive 2 points for every completed action. The player who played the What card that the Sender chose will receive one point.
