Before beginning the game, a player is selected to be The Dealer for the entire game.
The Dealer will distribute cards to the players.  The Dealer will make sure the players get all of their cards on each turn.

The Dealer plays the same as all of the other players.

The Dealer shuffles the brown Worst Type Cards and the blue Person Cards separately before starting.
The Worst Type Cards and the Person Cards are placed in separate stock piles and distributed by The Dealer.
The Dealer maintains a discard pile for the Worst Type Cards and the Person Cards.

The Dealer gives all of the players and themself 5 Worst Type Cards.

Each player on their turn is called The Decider. The player to the left of The Dealer gets the first turn as The Decider.

The Dealer places a Person Card from the top of the stock pile in the middle, between all of the players.

The Decider chooses a person on the Person Card for players to describe.

The player to the left of The Decider goes first.  Play continues to the left or clockwise for all players.
This means The Decider gets to play their card last.

Each player on their turn chooses a description from one of the Worst Type Cards in their hand that is the funniest and most ridiculous, ludicrous, absurd, weird, inappropriate, preposterous, and therefore “worst”, description of the chosen person on the Person Card.
The player places their Worst Type Card next to the Person Card in the middle.
The player reads the description on their Worst Type Card out loud.
The description in the middle of each Worst Type Card has a blank space (___).  If the player uses the blank during their reading of the card, they can fill in the blank with any word or words they want.
The player then explains why their description is a bad example of that type of person.

After each player has placed their card in the middle and read their Worst Type Card description, all of the players discuss why their description, or any other player’s description, is the “worst” choice.
After the players have discussed their descriptions, each player gives the Worst Type Card they played to the player they think made “the worst person”.
Players cannot award themself their own Worst Type Card.
The players who receive Worst Type Cards place them in a pile near themself to keep score.
The Person Card is placed in the discard pile.

At the end of the turn, the players then receive a new Worst Type Card from the stock pile.
Each player should have a total of 5 Worst Type Cards before the next turn is played.

After all of the players have received their cards, the player to the left of The Decider gets their turn to be The Decider.

After each player has played one turn as The Decider, the game is over.
The player with the most Worst Type Cards, wins the game.
Longer games can be played by treating a game where each player played one turn as The Decider as a round instead of a full game.
For multiple round games, the number of Worst Type Cards each player won after each round is written down on paper to keep score.  The player with the most points after a decided upon number of complete rounds have been played is the winner.
If more than half of the Stock Pile was used during the game, all of the Person Cards and Worst Type Cards are shuffled again before starting a new game.

An optional way of playing the game is to allow players to describe any person of their choice on the Person Card.
This method will increase the amount of time players take when deciding which description on their cards to play, which will increase the time needed to play a game.

In case of a tie at the end of a game, a new turn is played by the tied players only.
The tied players get a new Worst Type Card to give them 5 cards in their hand.
A new Person Card is placed in the middle and the tied players play a description from one of the Worst Type Cards in their hand to any person on the card.
The players then explain why their description is the “worst” example of that type of person.
All of the other players vote for which player they think made the “worst” person.
The player with the most votes wins.
If the votes are tied, then the tiebreaker process is repeated with new cards until a winner is decided.

Making funny matches with the cards is only part of the entertainment, the group discussion of everyone’s choices is where the game can really become fun.

Every Worst Type Card has a description with a blank space in it which allows players to customize their description to better fit the person on the Person Card.  Consider the possibilities of the blank spaces before playing your cards.

The description on your card may not seem to be that bad at first, but a clever or creative explanation can make your description the “worst”.

When short games are played, players can more easily leave or join the game.
If the optional way of playing which allows players to describe any person on the Person Card is used, a time limit may be needed to keep turns from taking too long.
