If you’re looking to kill it during your next game night, Stupid Deaths should be your trivia game of choice. It combines hilarious random historical trivia facts with the ever-looming threat of Death chasing you from behind.
The game supports two to six players and comes with 300 Stupid Deaths question cards to keep the party going. Gameplay is simple. Everyone playing places their pawns on the green starting position which is halfway across the board from Death’s starting point.
Each round, a player reads the Stupid Death card pulled from the deck and reads it aloud. Players then select either their “True” card or their “False” card and place their answer face down. Once everyone is ready, everyone’s selections are then revealed.
The reader for the round then confirms whether the Stupid Deaths card was in fact historically true or false. Everyone that selected correctly moves forward one spot. Death then moves forward one spot for every incorrect answer. Those that chose incorrectly (obviously) don’t advance their pawn.
The game then ends when someone first reaches Death’s red starting point on the other side of the board, or when only one pawn remains. There are one extra life cards as well for each player that will put you back in the game one spot ahead of Death.
