Game Overview

Shindig BS puts you face to face with a group of your friends to decide who has the guts and skills to become a BS pro.

The object of the game is to be the first person without any cards. Players get rid of cards by taking turns discarding cards to a pile in the center of the table.

You must discard cards even if you don’t have the ones called for. Remember that you have to tell everyone else what rank and how many cards you are playing. It’s everyone else’s job to either believe you and play on or hit the BS button.

If someone hits the BS button and you were telling the truth, they have to pick up the entire discard pile. If they catch you lying, you’re the one who has to pick up all of those cards.

If you and your friends decide to play with the “Peanut Butter” rule, a bluffer should shout out “Peanut Butter!” after the next player discards, letting everyone know that they successfully bluffed. Get ready to BS your way to victory!

Traditional Mode

In Traditional Mode, play proceeds sequentially from 2s up. Each player can bluff or play the specified rank. The player announces how many cards were played.
The bluffer or the loser of the challenge is notified after the cards are revealed.

Freestyle Mode

In Freestyle Mode, the group of players decides what rules to use. For example, play may proceed by odds then evens or each player may select a rank of their own choosing when it’s their turn to discard. In all cases, the player must remind the others of the selected rank and tell them how many cards were played. In addition to the 52 cards in a deck, both Jokers are in play and both are Wild.
It’s up to players at the table to call out the loser of a challenge and to make sure that player picks up the pile of cards.
