FAQ for YOU'RE SO BAD!TM
Q: When a card goes up for auction can the player who bids the lowest number opt to take the chicken points rather than play the card?
A: No. When a card goes up for auction it must be played by whoever ultimately bids the lowest number. That player is saying that he/she will take the biggest risk so chickening out isn't an option!
Q: Could you clarify how to determine whether a card is just for the current player, or whether that player can force another to play the card, or if it goes up for auction?
A: Before each card is played, the player with the turn rolls the 20-sided die. If the die reads 1-14, then the card is just for him/her. If the die roll is between 15-18, the card goes up for auction. If the die roll is 19 or 20, then the player can control of the card and can force another player to play it if so desired.
Q: We like to have more auctions and times when a player can force another player to play a card. What do you think about adjusting the die roll for these case?
A: Sure! If you want a lot more auctions and options for forcing players to play a card, you can even try this variation. Before each card is played roll 1-10 and the card can be played or forced on another player. Roll 11-15 and the card is only for the player who has the current turn. Roll 16-20 and the card is up for auction. This gives you a 50% chance that a card will be an option card, and 25% of all cards will likely go up for auction. Or you can try your own variations that work best for your players.
Q: When a card is forced on another player, does that player have to roll the die and play the card, or can that player chicken out and take the chiken points?
A: The player who gets a card forced on him/her has the option of rolling the die to make or lose points, or chickening out and taking the chicken points.
Q: We’ve lost our 20-sided die. Where do we get another one?
A: You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to sell you one, or you can look on Internet retailers and find them as well. You can also download a free app on your mobile phone for dice rollers that can generate rolls from dice of various sizes including a 20-sided die.
Q: Can we play the game using 6-sided dice?
A: Yes, if you have three 6-sided dice you can roll all three as a substitute for the 20-sided die. If you’ve had some probability in school, you’ll know that the probability of getting each of the numbers between 3 and 18 doesn’t mirror the probabilities of getting the numbers between 1 and 20 exactly. But you can still enjoy the game with three 6-sided dice. In order to determine whether a card is just for a player, or whether it is at the player’s control, or if it goes up for auction, we recommend that you roll two 6-sided dice. If the dice come up doubles then the card is up for auction. If any one of the dice comes up a 1, but not doubles, then the card is at the player’s control. Again, this changes the likelihood of getting auctions or seeing a player get control of a card from the original rules of the game, but the game is still a lot of fun with this variation.
