Right off the bat, we’re sure that all of your Mothers* are wonderful ladies of the very highest moral caliber…
Now that thatʼs out of the way, the point of this game is to defend your Mother’s honor by establishing objectively that everyone else’s Mother is, in fact, a whore. These rules will show you how.
Main Deck - 148 “Your Mother Is A Whore” cards:
In each of 4 suits - BLONDE, BRUNETTE, REDHEAD, RAVEN - there are the following:
Whore-Mom-Meter scoreboard and 8 colored pawns for scoring
Object Of The Game
The object of the game is to prove that your Mother is saintly and pure and that everybody else's mother is a dirty, filthy, toothless whore. How? By giving out Whore Points™ of course! Give them to other players while trying to avoid taking Whore Points™ yourself.
- Shuffle the cards thoroughly (especially for your first play out of the box, make sure to thoroughly mix the main deck. It’s a bit of work… we have a pretty big deck. We’re not bragging, it’s just a fact).
- Deal 7 cards from the MAIN DECK to every player.
- Put the remainder of the deck in the center of the table. This is the DRAW PILE.
- Turn over the top card and place it next to the deck to create the DISCARD PILE.
- Put the BECAUSE FUCK YOU, THAT’S WHY! deck next to these in the center.
- Each player selects a color and puts their counter on the Whore-Mom-Meter at 0.
How to give out Whore Points™
- The primary way you give out Whore Points™ is to collect cards that allow you to play a 5 card run of the phrase “YOUR MOTHER IS A (____) WHORE” with all cards in a single suit – BLONDE, BRUNETTE, REDHEAD or RAVEN. To play a run takes 5 cards. YOUR, MOTHER, IS A, (adjective), and WHORE, all in the same suit. The main deck includes 5 different adjectives in each suit to be used in completing the run: DIRTY, FILTHY, SKANKY, and the like. Any one of these adjectives can be used to make a complete run, but one adjective card is required to complete it.
- When you play a run of “YOUR MOTHER IS A DIRTY WHORE” (or a Filthy Whore, a Skanky Whore, etc), every other player gets 3 Whore Points™.
- Wild cards - either WILD SUIT cards or WILD WORD cards - can also be used to make the run.
- You may play a run at any point in the game you are able to - even if its not currently your turn. Once a run is played, those cards are placed in the DISCARD PILE. Also, right after playing a run you replenish your hand to 7 cards.
- Take note, each of the different adjective cards has a slightly different bonus or action when played in a run. These special bonuses are described on the card itself, so keep an eye on these when choosing which adjectives to hang on to.
- Whore Points™ can also be added (or subtracted) by certain Action cards or via the effects of certain Because Fuck You, That’s Why! cards. These game effects or giving of Whore Points™ is spelled out on the card itself.
At the start of every turn, you have 4 options to begin your turn:
- Take a card from the DRAW PILE
- Take the top card off of the DISCARD PILE (Action cards cannot be taken from the DISCARD PILE)
- Steal 1 card at random from the hand of any other player (the player stolen from then replaces the stolen card from the top of the DRAW PILE)
- Take a card from the Because Fuck You, That’s Why! deck
After drawing a card, make any play that you’re able: maybe you have a “YOUR MOTHER IS A (____) WHORE” run you can play, or perhaps play an Action card if the time is right. If you can’t make any play, then discard a card to the top of the DISCARD PILE.
Because Fuck You, That’s Why!
The Because Fuck You, That’s Why! deck is a bit like a loaded gun, except sometimes this gun is pointed out at other players, and sometimes it’s pointed back at you. It’s there to give you a chance to mix things up a little, but it isn’t always going to go your way. Why? Because Fuck You, That’s Why!
Every player selects a colored pawn at the start. As players get Whore Points™, or perhaps have them taken away, keep track of everyone’s score on the Whore-Mom-Meter. You can move the counters up the shaft on the Whore-Mom-Meter, or down it, whichever you choose - people have different and sometimes strong positions on which way is right, so we opted to give you both.
Finesse (aka Cheating)
*Don’t take it personally - this is the oldest of insults, we just made a fun little game out of it. But it doesn’t make us bad people. We respect women. We love women.
Especially your Mom.
