Play begins with a judge player, choosing a black question or fill-in-the-blank card from the top of the deck and showing it to all players. Each player holds a hand of ten white answer cards at the beginning of each round, and passes a card (sometimes two) to the judge, player face-down, representing their answer to the question on the card. The judge player determines which answer card(s) are funniest in the context of the question or fill-in-the-blank card. The player who submitted the chosen card(s) is given the question card to represent an "Awesome Point", and then the player to the left of the judge player becomes the judge for the next round. Play continues until the players agree to stop, at which point the player with the most Awesome Points is the winner.
