OVERVIEW OF YOU LAUGH YOU DRINK
Are you the Joker of the friend group? Do you just have that special ability to always make people laugh? If so, this is the game for you! This party game has only one goal, to make the other person break!
The cards prompt actions that are sure to make someone in the group laugh, hopefully it will be the Target! Each round, the Joker chooses who they will try to make laugh. The Target must try their best to hold it together while the action on the card is completed.
You laugh, you drink. The punishment is in the name! After a few rounds (and drinks) the game gets a lot harder!
To setup You Laugh You Drink, simply shuffle the cards and place them facedown in the middle of the group. The game is ready to be played!
To begin, the funniest person draws the first card. This makes them the Joker. The Joker reads the card to themselves. After deciding, the Joker announces to the group who they will target. The Target’s goal is to not laugh while the Joker does whatever they are prompted to do by the card.
The Joker is allowed to pass on their turn if they do not want to do what is on the card. They should take a sip of shame if they choose to pass. No points are earned or deducted.
After choosing their target, the Joker has 30 seconds to do whatever is on their card, with the goal being to make the Target laugh. All other players are allowed to laugh, the Target is the only one limited.
If the Target breaks, and laughs, they must drink. The Joker gets to then keep the card and earn a point. If the Target does not laugh, however, they get to keep the card and earn a point, and the Joker must drink.
The player to the left of the Joker now becomes the new Joker. They draw a new card and pick a new target. The same person cannot be targeted twice in a row! The first person to earn seven points wins!
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when a player reaches seven points. That player is declared the winner.
