The Basics of Hotseat

Hotseat is a fun game about quick thinking and knowing your friends.

The game starts with the player who most recently had a birthday.

This player draws three cards, chooses one, and answers the question or prompt on the card.

All other players then write down what they think the player in the Hot Seat’s answer will be.

Points are scored for each answer that matches or closely resembles the actual answer.

The game continues with players taking turns in the Hot Seat. The player with the most points at the end wins.

How can I make my own deck of cards for Hotseat?

Creating your own deck of cards for the Hotseat game can be a fun and creative process.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

Design Your Cards

Start by designing your cards.

You can use a program like Microsoft Word or nan Deck.

In this method, the cards are made of three layers of paper glued together, which makes them feel like a professionally made card.

So, start with a rectangle that is 3 times as tall as you want the card.

Draw the Cards

In the bottom third draw a solid black rectangle, this serves to block any light that could otherwise pass through the paper and reveal its value.

In the middle third draw the image of the back of your cards.

If this image has a definite up and down remember to place, it upside down.

Then in the top third draw the values of the individual cards.

Print the Cards

Choose what printer you are going to use and print the cards.

I suggest that you use a printer that has ink that is not water soluble.

Sweat or other moisture from your hands or the glue can cause water soluble ink to run or smear.

Trim Off the Bottom of the Paper

Trim off the portion of the paper that is below the solid black rectangles.

Customize Your Cards

You can customize your cards with questions that you think would be fun to answer in a game of Hotseat.

The questions can be funny, serious, or generally inappropriate.

Remember, creating your own deck of cards for Hotseat allows you to personalize the game and make it more fun for everyone involved!

The Gameplay

The gameplay involves selecting a card from the Hotseat deck, which contains questions or challenges.

All players, including the one in the Hot Seat, then write an answer to the card, pretending to be the player in the Hot Seat.

The player in the Hot Seat collects all the answers and reads them aloud to the group.

Each player takes turns guessing which answer was written by the player in the Hot Seat.

In addition, resulting in laughter and surprises as players try to decipher who wrote what.

Scoring Points

Points are awarded based on correct guesses.

The player in the Hot Seat gets one point for each player that correctly guesses their answer.

All other players get one point for each player that guesses their answer and two points for guessing the player in the Hot Seat’s answer correctly.

If two or more responses are the same, they are eliminated from the round unless one of them was written by the player in the Hot Seat.

House Rules

Incorporating house rules in Hotseat can add a fun twist to the game.

For example, you could have a rule where the player in the Hot Seat must play the first card they draw, adding an element of unpredictability.

Alternatively, you could allow the player in the Hot Seat to create an original question, encouraging creativity and personalization in the game.
