HOW DO I PLAY THIS GAME?
*** WARNING - PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. TOPICS AND LANGUAGE FOUND IN THIS GAME MAY BE DISTURBING TO BORING PEOPLE.
To start the game each player draws three 5 syllable cards and two 7 syllable cards. One player will read to the group a "Performance Card". The Performance Card will give all players a note on how they should perform their Haiku for the rest of the group.
Based on this Performance Card, players will use their cards to create a 5,7,5 Haiku. Players may use either side of the 5 and 7 cards to create their poem.
The player who initially read the Performance card will select their favorite based on both the haiku itself and/or the performance.
You'll find that sometimes a well crafted haiku is the key and at other times a strong performance with a bunch of nonsense can be your best friend. If we have one recommendation for playing this game, it is to go all in and have fun with the performance aspect. This is not a game for shy people or the Amish.
Each deck comes with 550 Cards! That's like twice as many as a normal deck of cards. Holy fucking shit are you getting a deal!
The deck is comprised of 100 performance prompt cards and 450 haiku cards. As you may have noticed, each of the haiku cards
has two sides. That means the 450 haiku cards are more like 900. (go ahead... do the Keanu Reeves "whoa").
