Blank Slate Board Game


  1. Turn Sequence:

    • In each round, one player acts as the "reader" and draws a word cue card from the deck. They read the prompt aloud to all players.

    • Players then secretly write their answer on their slate board, trying to match the prompt without being too obvious or too obscure.

  2. Reveal and Scoring:

    • Once all players have written their answers, they reveal them simultaneously.

    • Players score points based on how many other players they match with:

      • If only one player matches, both players score 3 points.

      • If two or more players match, each matching player scores 1 point.

      • If no players match, each player scores 0 points.

    • Players mark their scores on a scoring track.

  3. Next Round:

    • Pass the reader role to the next player clockwise.

    • Draw a new word cue card and repeat the process for the next round.End of Game:

    • The game continues for a predetermined number of rounds or until players reach a certain score threshold.

    • The player with the highest score at the end of the game wins.
