Preparing your space for a whirlwind of fun in Blow My Deck is a breeze! Here’s what you need:
- A spirited group of friends ready to showcase their mastery of breath control.
- An assortment of beverages ranging from frothy beers to tangy ciders, or non-alcoholic drinks for those who prefer a sober challenge.
- A standard deck of playing cards, all 52 of them!
- A variety of floating surfaces such as plastic cups or paper plates — one for each participant.
With your friends assembled, drinks poured, and materials at the ready, you’re all set to begin the boisterous bouts of Blow My Deck!
The whimsical charm of Blow My Deck lies in its simplicity and unpredictability. Here’s how you play:
- Each player takes their floating surface, places it upside down, and perches a card from the deck on top.
- On the command “Blow my Deck!”, participants blow their cards off the surface using only their breath.
- After blowing the card successfully, the player takes a sip of their drink and proceeds to place the next card in the deck on the surface.
- If the card falls to the ground, the player must consume a full cup (or predetermined amount) of their drink. Alternatively, they can retrieve the fallen card and attempt to blow it off of the surface again.
- The game continues until every player has attempted to blow all 52 cards.
Optional Rules and Variations
Add a gust of excitement to your Blow My Deck experience with these amusing variations and custom rules:
- Head-to-Head: Turn the game into a competition by dividing participants into teams. Battle in pairs, trying to blow off as many cards as possible within a limited time frame. The team with the most cards blown off claims victory!
- Stack The Deck: Increase the challenge by stacking two or more cards on the surface. Players must blow accurately to remove only the top card without disrupting the stack.
- Blow Relay: Form two lines with an equal number of players; each player must blow one card successfully before the next player takes their turn. The first team to have all players complete the task wins!
