Three Way is a pearl clutching, cringe-worthy, face-flushing, fast-paced, interactive group game that is scandalously fun.
***CAUTION! IF YOU ARE OVERLY SENSITIVE, EASILY OFFENDED, AND HAVE ZERO SENSE OF HUMOR, PLEASE WAIT TO PURCHASE THE CLEAN BOX VERSION!***
This game contains 2 ways to play for added fun. CREATIVE JUICES SET (RED) are the cards that you get to be creative and come up with your own answers. MISSIONARY SET (BLACK) has the suggestions already written out for you by our creative and often warped-minded writers.
Your team’s mission is to score as many points as possible. Each card is worth 1 point. Nothing complicated here!
Pick 2 even teams. If you have an uneven number of players, put the weakest link on your opponent’s side. *Please note: If you choose girls against boys, the girls minds are connected in a weird way...like those blue Avatars to that tree!
Next, pick 1 person in charge of a timer (we use the timer on our phone). Pick someone in charge of the box (this job includes shuffling when needed and counting them out for the rounds). Finally, a score keeper.
Lastly, choose which game you will play. Both are equally fun, so you cannot go wrong. For 1st time playing we personally like playing Missionary.
MISSIONARY SET (BLACK CARDS)
We suggest shuffling these cards frequently to keep from playing the same cards over and over. Pull out 3 cards per person playing. These will go face down into the box lid. Figure out which team is going 1st. This has been done by a quick rock, paper, scissors or even an arm wrestle match. Set the timer for 45 seconds per player. You are talking to YOUR team, but the others better be paying attention.
ROUND 1: ONLY TALKING! You can only TALK ABOUT the card! No use of hand gestures of any kind. You cannot say any words on the card! Just simply talk about it until someone guesses what it is. NO PASSING! You can do it…or just look slightly awkward for 45 seconds! Go to the next card and so on until the time is up. Keep all cards that were guessed. The lid goes to the opposing team. Repeat back and forth until all cards are gone, and the round is over. Count all cards for each team and write it down. Each card is 1 point. Shuffle and all cards go back into the box lid. Yes, you are using the same ones for each round!
ROUND 2: ACTING OUT! This is the same process as above, but this time each player will be only ACTING OUT the words. You cannot say a word! You cannot point!! I know, this will be hard, but you can do it! Count the winnings, shuffle, and put the cards back into the box.
ROUND 3: ONE WORD! Yes, choose wisely my friends. You are describing the card with only ONE WORD! Sometimes the word “shit!” pops out in the thinking process and guess what? That is now your word, and you get to see some impressive memory skills…especially after a couple of beers. Total your winnings!
TOTAL UP ALL ROUNDS! Do your happy dance, shout “in your face you big losers!” or shake hands like nice humans.
CREATIVE JUICES SET (RED CARDS)
For this version of the game, you will need to gather some paper (don’t make this too complicated) and pens or pencils. All players pick ONE RED CREATIVE JUICES card from the box. Secretly write out words or very short phrases on 3 papers to answer the question. Keep your Creative Juices card face down because you will need it at the end of this round. *Remember your team will be guessing these. Be creative! Next fold them in half and everyone tosses them in the box lid. Choose which team will go 1st.
Let’s play!! Set a timer for 45 seconds per player. This is COMPLETELY THE SAME ORDER AS ABOVE!
ROUND 1: ONLY TALKING!
ROUND 2: ACTING OUT!
ROUND 3: ONE WORD!
The end is a little different here. If you are at a tie or close, this can steal the game!
BONUS ROUND! Each player tells their team what their 3 cards were. Your team has 45 seconds to yell out what they think their Creative Juice card was. If you they don’t guess it, it goes to the opposing team. They then have 45 seconds to come up with 1 answer as a group. This goes back and forth until everyone has their Creative Juice card revealed.
We hope you enjoy playing this as much as we enjoy creating it. Please feel free to give us a shout out by taking a picture of your friends playing and post to any of our social media outlets. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. #Threewaygames
