What It Is
Funny or Die is a new game based on the comedy website FunnyorDie.com. The object of the game is to match photos and captions to make the funniest joke and win the money. The player with the most money is the "most funny" and the winner.
To start, each player receives five cards, 10 $1,000 Funny or Die bills, one Funny token, and one Die token. Then, players take turns rolling the die. If you roll a camera, take three cards from the deck and lay them on the table picture-side up. If you roll a speech bubble, pull three cards from the deck and lay them on the table caption-side up. If you roll a star, you get to choose if you want the cards picture-side or caption-side up.
Underneath the camera or speech bubble on the die is a monetary amount: $1,000, $2,000, or $4,000. Each player places the amount of money shown on the die into the center of the table.
Then, players choose a card from their hand, matching a photo to a caption or a caption to a photo. You're trying to make the funniest pair. Once everyone has played a card, it's time to vote. Each player places their Funny token face-down on a card pair and their Die token face-down on another card pair. (You can't vote for yourself.) Flip the tokens and count the votes. The card pair with the most Funny tokens wins, and the person who played the winning card takes the pile of money from the center. Everyone then takes back their tokens, and a new round begins.
There are also Fill-in-the-Blank cards on which players can use their own word or phrase to complete the caption. You can also play with Joker Cards by adding your own caption or photo.
Funny or Die comes with 247 cards, a money pack, a die, six Funny tokens, six Die tokens, and a label sheet for the die. It is for three to six players.
