When you get the family around the table you need to find a gem for all the family.
Man Bites Dog is a “Hilarious Headline Card Game”, in which you build your headlines for the points. More points more you win.
Examples would be –
“Governor Dreams 0f Teen Angel” = 60 Points. (4 cards)
“TV Nurse Runs Off With Dog Lover” = 95 Points. (5 cards)
- 106 Headline Cards
- 3 Exclusive Cards
- 1 Instruction Card
To be the first player to score 500 points by making zany headlines.
Creativity is the key of the game. 5 cards in hand can you build that perfect hand.
Stage 1 – Draw 5 cards each.
Stage 2 – Each player may discard up to 3 cards. (starting to deal from the left)
Stage 3 – Hands are laid. Biggest points are best but the headline has to make sense.
Acceptable – “Blind Dog Weeps for Mayor”
Unacceptable – “Vaccine Tells on Blonde”
Stage 4 – Scoring.
In any card game, its about building your hand and on numerous occasions we ended up getting a dud headline – But scored high in later rounds. Using higher scoring cards for ending round victories are key.
The card game is pretty good from a person who has played many card games this was a good pick up.
