OVERVIEW OF TRUE COLORS
How well do you know your friends? How well do they know you? This game will see if you really know each other’s true colors. After a card is read, all players decide who they think best fits the description.
Do you think you received any of those votes? Better hope your guess is right, or else you can find yourself as the loser quickly! With 170 hilarious questions, True Colors is the perfect way to find out what your friends really think about you! Are you ready for ten rounds? Play and see!
To begin the setup, each player chooses a color to use as their avatar. They will then take one voting card, of their own color, and the avatar matching their color. Next, all active players’ voting cards are placed face up in the middle of the group. Each player will then take two of each other players’ voting cards.
The ballot box and guessing cards are placed in the center of the group. The guessing cards are placed in order none, some, and most. After the setup, one player is chosen to be the scorekeeper. They will keep the scorepad throughout the game, labeling it with each players initials.
The group will choose who is the first question reader. This player will begin the game!
The first question reader will draw a card from the question card deck and read it out loud to the group. Each player will then vote for two players who they believe best match the question card. If one player matches the card perfectly, you may play both of their voting cards instead. To vote, the player must place their chosen voting cards into the ballot box.
After every player has voted, each player guesses how many votes they received. They do so by placing their avatar on one of the guessing cards representing how many votes they think they received.
The question reader will then open the ballot box and show the voting cards. At this point, points are tallied based off if a player was right in guessing how many votes they received. If a player guessed incorrectly, no points are received. If a player guessed correctly and received none or most of the votes, they earn three points. If a player guessed correctly and received only some of the votes, they earn one point.
After points have been tallied, all voting cards are placed in a pile face down. They are then shuffled and flipped over. Each player will take two voting cards for each other player, refreshing their hand.
The next round will begin with the player clockwise to the previous question reader reading the next question card. These steps continue for ten rounds. Points are then tallied and the player with the most points wins the game!
END OF GAME
The game ends after ten rounds. The player with the highest score wins the game!
