Rushmore is a card game developed by RushmoreGames that’s very easy to play and understand. It basically plays out like the categories drinking game but adds in some debatable cards and a massive deck of great category ideas. Just grab a drink, flip some cards, and share some laughs!
How To Play
As stated earlier this is one of the best parts about the game. It’s simplicity. All that you need to do is shuffle the deck (or multiple decks if you grabbed any of the expansion sets) and take turns flipping cards. The cards themselves come in two flavors; Category cards and Debatable cards. Points are earned through being the last one standing in a category game or having the best argument in a debatable game.
Just like in many classic card drinking games like Kings, once this card is flipped players must take turns saying something that fits within the category on the card. Categories can be anything from “Slang terms for sex” to “fast food chains”. If anyone takes longer then 5 seconds or repeats an answer they are out of the game. Play continues until only 1 person remains. There’s also a few “you choose” category cards in there that let the drawer pick which of the two topics to play.
If you are the type of person who likes to have a few drinks and get into a good argument then these are the cards for you. These cards present a debatable subject like “best sports team of all time”. Then everyone goes in turn and makes their case. Once everyone is done then at the count of 3 everyone points to a single player, whoever got the most people point to them wins the round.
The Chuggernauts Drinking Rules
These rules practically write themselves so we’ll keep it simple.
- If you get knocked out of a category round drink.
- During debatable if the candidate you chose isn’t the winner, drink.
- Play to 7 points. At the end of the game whoever had the least points finishes their drink.
Rushmore Card Game Review
This game is good for keeping conversation flowing. In our opinion it’s best played as a filler while watching a sporting event. Since it’s so easy to just pick up and play it makes for a great ice breaker if you want to just hang out and have a few brews.
Although the Rushmore card game can get a little repetitive after a while they also offer expansions such as their Sports pack which features another whopping 117 cards for anyone who loves to flaunt their knowledge of all things spots. So combined with those two packs would have a total 234 cards so you can rest assured you’ll be playing a different game each time you pick up the deck.
