Dad Jokes Guessing Game

  1. The game is for 2 players. Each player takes a joke card and folds it so that the Hints and Answer can't be seen by the other player.
  2. Player 1 shows Player 2 the joke on the card. Player 2 tries to guess the answer by circling one of the letters in boxes. For example, by circling the letter E.
  3. Player 1 lifts the card to check the answer and fills in ALL the blanks ( _ ) that contain an E in the answer. Check this carefully, so that no E's are missed!
  4. If there are no E's at all in the answer, Player 1 darkens one part of the light gray Dad figure. The parts are darkened in the order:
    1. Head circle
    2. Body line
    3. One arm
    4. Other arm
    9 Piece Stick figure
    1. One leg
    2. Other leg
    3. One eye
    4. Other eye
    5. Smile
    Player 1 also reads a hint, if there are any left, and checks it off. Player 2 loses if the Smile is darkened and the Dad figure is complete. Player 1 keeps that joke card.
  5. Player 1 then crosses out the guessed letter in the letter list.
  6. If the blanks are completely filled in with the joke's answer, Player 2 is a winner and takes the joke card. If not, Player 2 guesses another letter by circling it.
  7. Player 1 and 2 swap roles for the other joke.
