The game will remain active at least through the pandemic.
If at some point afterwards (assuming any of us survive) there aren't many folks playing, we may shut it down.
If we do, we'll e-mail you a copy of all the cards so you can print them out and play Cards For Quarantine in real life.
Remember that? Playing games in real life? Yeah, we know, it sucks.
First, make sure everyone is at least 6 feet apart. Second, figure out who coughed last. Thirdly and most importantly, assess if that person requires medical attention. If not, they are deemed Patient Zero and will act as the first judge of the game!
Everyone, including the first Patient Zero, will be randomly dealt 10 white response cards to their individual screens. These are used to create macabre and sadistic humor when paired with the black prompt cards. Players are automatically and randomly given a replacement white card for each one they use.
This Step Is The Entire Game, Don't Skip It
Patient Zero will start off the game by reading the black prompt card shown on everyone's screen aloud. You cannot skip any black card. You must forge ahead, my friends! Everyone else will click and submit their most appropriate, or most inappropriately funny, response card. Patient Zero will then choose the winning card based on his or her humor by clicking on and confirming the chosen card.
We recommend Patient Zero read each response card paired with the prompt card out loud before choosing the winning card. However, please only do so if Patient Zero has retained the majority of his or her lung function. The person who submitted the winning response card receives a Vaccination point!
MAKE IT STOP
After the round has ended, a new person will be deemed Patient Zero and the game repeats until we all die alone. Alternatively, we recommend playing until one person has 5 Vaccination points. Point totals can be viewed by clicking the players () icon on the top right of the screen.
