Monikers is based on a public domain game, so there are lots of different ways to play:


Public

If you're out somewhere, you can just pull cards from the box and try to get your friends to guess using the rules for Round 1 or 2. Probably no need to use a timer or keep score.


Extra Rounds

You can add rounds with different rules. We've seen people play rounds with making a single sound, holding a facial expression, and playing the charades round under a sheet. Seriously.


Multi Team

If your group is getting too big, you might want to divide into more than 2 teams. But if you do, still try to keep the total number of cards in the deck around 50.


Co-op

If you're with a small group (4 or less), try playing cooperatively. Our friend Alan Gerding invented a fun variant where you set a timer-add 1 minute per card in the deck-and try to finish all 3 rounds in the allotted time (including reshuffling, etc).
