There are no winners in YAP. The first person to receive 21 Shame points loses!

How to start

After acquiring a deck, grab up to three friends or foes.

You'll also need:
1. A coin
2. Pen/paper for score
3. Small paper for each player

Before dealing all players write one topic that the loser must apologize for.

* Don't share your topic.
* Fold and place aside until end of game.
Apology Examples
Claiming the moon makes it tough for old ladies to cross the road / Battle cats / Lying on my eye exam / Inbreeding goats / The flat-earther space program

Next, deal all players 8 cards.

On your turn, bring out any cards that you can afford.

* You must spend Resource cards to bring other cards into play.
(read how Resources work below)

There are 5 types of cards:

Resources are the green cards. Spend them to bring all other cards into play.
* Discard after spending.

The Resource cost of each card is listed on their top-right corner:

YAP Card Costs

Lacking Resources? This symbol may help.

Cards with this symbol can be played as any Resource you wish. HOWEVER this is a sacrifice that will cast you one Shame. * If used as Resource, discard after spending.

Shame/Wild symbol

These are your main cards.

When brought into play, place them in a row of protection in front of you.
They attack and defend for you.
