Official SERVD Couples Rules

SERVD Couples is a card game designed to bring fun, spontaneity, and playful challenges into your relationship. It's a game that turns everyday situations into opportunities for humor, bonding, and sometimes mischief. Here’s how to play:

Objective

The objective is to play all of your cards by completing the actions or challenges on them, enhancing your relationship through shared experiences and fun activities.

Setup

1. Players: The game is designed for two players (a couple).


2. Divide the Deck: Each player receives half of the deck, ensuring they each have an equal number of cards.

Gameplay

  1. Starting the Game:

    • Decide mutually on a start date for the game.

    • Set a game period (e.g., one month, six months, etc.), or agree to play until all cards are used.

  2. Playing a Card:

    • At any point during the game period, you can play a card by presenting it to your partner.

    • Your partner must complete the action or challenge on the card as per the instructions.

  3. Rules for Playing Cards:

    • Timing: Cards can be played at any time unless the card specifies a particular time or condition.

    • Completion: Your partner must complete the action or challenge within a reasonable time frame, as indicated on the card or mutually agreed upon.

    • Validity: Make sure the card is played in a context where the action or challenge is reasonable and safe.

  4. Refusing a Card:

    • Refusal Limit: Players can set a limit on the number of refusals allowed during the game (e.g., each player can refuse up to two cards).

    • Replaying a Card: If a card is refused, it can either be discarded or saved to play again later, based on your agreed rules.

Winning the Game

  • The game continues until the set period ends or all cards are played.

  • There is no traditional winner; the aim is to enjoy the playful challenges and interactions.

  • Optionally, you can declare a winner based on who played the most cards or completed the most challenges.

Notes/Variations

Tips for Playing:

  • Communication: Ensure clear communication about the rules and objectives before starting the game.

  • Flexibility: Be adaptable and considerate of each other's schedules and comfort levels.
