Clowns Applaud Insanity

Draw a question card, like “With our planet doomed, our only chance for survival is ___________.” Then all other players submit their funniest answer card, like “Nothing” or “Nick Offerman chained to a power-generating exercycle.” Choose the most hilarious answer, and the player who submitted it gets an “Applause Point.” Play until you get bored, then whoever has the most points wins. Our jokes our funny, so you should play it. CAUTION: 18+ only. This game is mostly adult humor.
