Monique is an absurd party game of word associations that promises to spend delirious evenings!
The first player places a face-up card of his choice and reads it aloud, example "Goat". 4 choices are available to you:
1. Place a Word card face up. Your word must be related to the previous one. If the word has an obvious connection, for example "Cheese" with "Goat", your turn is over. If your word sows doubt, another player says "I don't see the connection". You have to justify the relationship between the 2 words. Everyone listens to your explanation and then they vote.
2. Place a Word card face down. This card may or may not relate to the previous word. A player can then say "You're bluffing!". You return your card and must justify yourself. The voting phase follows to find out if you have been convincing enough! If no one calls the bluff, it's the next player's turn. We start from the last Word card revealed.
3. Draw a card. You can play it immediately or skip your turn.
4. Play a Monique card instead of a Word card. Each card has its rules written on it. The next player starts from the last revealed Word card.
And the humor in all this? If you manage to make your accuser laugh, you win! The first player to play all his cards wins.
Spice up your games with the red cards: only to be taken out when the children and other sensitive souls are in bed. ;)
