Here you can find two different sets of instructions depending on who you would like to play Spicify with: a group of friends or a special person.

 

Spicify Groups’ Version Rules

Ready to spice up the party? Here is what you need to do.

 

Number of Players

From 4 to 16

 

Goal of the Game

Defeat the opposing team scoring more points

 

How to Play

Form two teams, each composed by both males and females. Try to keep their number even in each team. Each team should have the same number of players. If the number of players is odd, in each turn a different player in the larger team will skip the turn. Each player sits next to another of the opposing team, forming a circle.

There are two sets of cards, recognizable from their back. The “Cold Set” includes easier challenges that assign less points, whereas the “Hot Set” offers harder ones but also provides higher points. In each set there are 28 different challenges, for a total of 56 unique ones.

 

Decide which team begins and with which sets you want to play, you can choose to play with only one, or both at the same time. Just make sure that both teams play with the same cards in their decks for a even match.

Each set contains two decks with the same cards, one for each team. At each turn a player draws a card from one of the decks in game assigned to his/her team and can either accept of refuse the proposed challenge.

 

Each card describes:

  • The number of points earned or lost by the team if the challenge is accepted or refused by the player
  • The challenge to take
  • The penalty to perform to limit the number of points lost when refusing a challenge
  • A symbol “Partner” which indicates whether the partner can be of either sex or the opposite sex

    Either Sex Icon

     

    Opposite Sex Icon

  • A symbol “Clothes” that shows what both partners should wear during the challenge:

    Fully Dressed: just keep everything on

     

    Bra and Pants: take off your shirt

     

     

    Bikini for girls, underwear for boys

     

    Topless for girls, underwear for boys

     

    No Clothes!

Some cards offer challenges to be taken solo. In this case the player can: accept the challenge (and score points), refuse the challenge (and lose the maximum amount of points) or accept a penalty (losing less points).

Other cards offer challenges to be played with a partner. In this case, the player drawing the card has to either accept or refuse the challenge, than pick the partner from the opposing team, randomly or at his/her choice, depending on the card.

If the player of the opposing team accepts the challenge, his/her team receives the same number of points of the team whose player drew the card. No points are lost if he/she refuses, but the player who drew the card can perform the challenge with a player of his/her own team to earn the points only for his/her team.

If no partner is found even in the same team of the player, no points are lost by either of the teams.

After each challenge the points scored or loss by either or both teams are noted and the card played is removed from the game.

The game ends when there are no more cards to play in any deck in game.

 

Gameplay quick reference sheet

Here is a quick graphical description of the gameplay to dive straight into the action. You can always check instructions again when you are in doubt.

 

Variations and suggestions

Both Cold and Hot Set have cards with 14 different scores, for the Cold Set they go from +2/-1 up to +15/-8, whereas for the Hot Set the minimum is +10/-10 and the maximum is +23/-23.

You can play with half of the Cold or Hot Sets, making sure to pick cards with different scores, or you can play with all of the cards of the set. Same goes with decks, you can play with just the cold one, or the hot one, or both together. Just keep in mind that a match with 14 different challenges lasts between 60 to 90 minutes when most of the challenges are accepted.

Our suggestion, is to start with the Cold Set, once the ice is broken and everyone is feeling more comfortable, you can give a try to the Hot Set and see how far you can go 😉

The easiest way to pick the random partner is to have players pick a number from 1 to 5, sum them up, and count among the different players eligible for the challenge, which depends for example if you have to pick a partner of either sex or of the opposite sex.

Counting points sometimes can be tricky if you do not remember to sum up correctly the points for your team when a player of the opposite team played a card with you. Our suggestion is to pick two players who keep scores and always wait for them to add (or subtract) the points to their counter before continue playing.

When playing with only 4 or 6 players, it can happen to have the same challenge repeated with the same two players. It does not mean that what will happen will be the same (everyone has his/her own approach), but if you want to add more variability, you can break the rule to have both teams playing with the same cards in their decks. Pick different card with the same score and then randomly decide which team gets each deck. You will never make the same challenge twice.

 

Spicify Couples’ Version Rules

When playing with a special friend the game needs to be adapted a bit. Here you can find a modified version of the rules that allow two players to play together.

 

Number of Players

2

 

Goal of the Game

Score more points than the opposing player

 

How to Play

Before beginning, each player chooses a “prize” to receive if they win the game.

There are two sets of cards. The “Cold Set” includes easier challenges that assign less points, whereas the “Hot Set” offers harder ones but also provides higher points.

Decide which player begins and with which sets you want to play, you can choose to play with only one, or both at the same time.

Each set contains two decks with the same cards. Either pick the decks marked as Team 1 or Team 2, discard the others. Players draw cards in turn from one of the decks in game and can either accept of refuse the proposed challenge.

Each card describes:

  • The number of points earned or lost by the team if the challenge is accepted or refused by the player
  • The challenge to take
  • The penalty to perform to limit the number of points lost when refusing a challenge
  • A symbol “Partner” which indicates whether the partner can be of either sex or the opposite sex

    Either Sex Icon

     

    Opposite Sex Icon

  • A symbol “Clothes” that shows what both partners should wear during the challenge:

    Fully Dressed: just keep everything on

    Bra and Pants: take off your shirt

    Bikini for girls, underwear for boys

    Topless for girls, underwear for boys

    No Clothes!

Some cards offer challenges to be taken solo. In this case the player can: accept the challenge (and score points), refuse the challenge (and lose the maximum amount of points) or accept
a penalty (losing a smaller amount of points).

Other cards offer challenges to be played with a partner. In this case, the player drawing the card has to either accept or refuse the challenge, than ask the other player to join. Being two obviously means that the partner will always be your opponent, regardless of what the card says.

If the opposing player accepts the challenge, he/she receives the same number of points of the player who drew the card.

If he/she refuses, a number of points equal to those of the penalty of the card are subtracted from his/her score. No point is lost by the player who drew the card.

After each challenge the points scored or lost by one or both players are noted and the card played is removed from the game.

The game ends when there are no more cards to play in any deck in game.

The player who scored more points is rewarded
with the prize chosen.
