Welcome to - Man Bites Dog - the zany headline game! You are the editor of the Enquirer, a sensational news source. It?s your job to write headlines that not only snag the readers? attention, but also make sense. How do I play? Players will receive five cards at the beginning of each round. Each card contains a word or phrase in addition to a point value. Players use these cards to construct a headline that they post in the thread. Headlines can be funny or unusual, but must make sense. The points from each card used are added together. Players do not have to use all of their cards. A few lucky players may see an Exclusive card, which doubles the points of the headline. Note: If you receive the Exclusive card, you must use it to obtain the points. All the cards return to the deck at the end of each round, it?s possible that someone will receive a card you played in the last round. Examples of acceptable headline: Urologist Runs Off With 340 LB Blonde Mob Boss - this one is using all 5 cards - "Runs Off With" comes on one card. 50 + 50 + 50 + 25 + 25 = 200 points!! Good luck trying to manage this in the game! Blind Dog Weeps for Mayor - this one was created with 4 cards, "Weeps For" is on one card. 25 + 10 + 25 + 5 = 65 points would be your score for that round. Psychic Tot Snubs Prez 25 + 25 + 5 + 25 = 80 points! Unacceptable: Vaccine Tells on Blonde Tough Czar Slays Devoted Jewels The Rules 1. If a player misses three rounds, they are out of the game. 2.
