Lord of the Things - Your new favorite party game!
Declare yourself the Lord of… basically whatever you want in this fast-paced party game – just make sure the Overlord approves! Whether you are the Lord of Hairstyles; Lord of Barnyard Animal Noises; Lord of Body Parts; or the Lord of Things that Come in Pairs, be prepared to intimidate, distract, and out-think your opponents to call out something in their category before they call out something in yours.
How to Play
One player is randomly selected as the Overlord for the first round – this role then rotates each round. All players declare themselves the Lord of some category (such as Lord of Party Games; Internet Slang Acronyms; or Countries in South America; Currencies; etc.), and the Overlord can either approve or deny Lordships, ensuring a reasonable familiarity with the topic among all players.
Each player has a stack of wooden Thing Tokens and a dice in front of them. One person rolls their dice at a time, and when two dice match, those Lords are in a duel. To win a duel, you have to take something from the other Lord’s category before they take something from yours by being the first to say, “I shall have your ________________;” and naming something from your opponent’s category. The Overlord is responsible for settling any disputes and breaking ties. The winning Lord takes the Thing Token at the top of their opponent’s stack, adding it to their point line. The winning Lord then rolls their dice, and play continues.
The end-game battle for bonus points is triggered when any player reaches 15 points, and players grab for the bonus stars in the center of the table. Points are tallied and a new round begins. Play as many rounds as your elevated blood pressure can handle. The player with the most points at the end wins.
