Starting a Game

Now you know how to play, set the game up by separating all the Armour Cards and place them in a separate pile in reach of all the players.

Deal 5 cards to each player and place the remaining cards in a pile next to the pile of Armour Cards. These become the Main Deck and the Armour Deck.

Choose someone to go first, this could be whoever’s birthday was last or the fastest person to eat a cake...

Each player draws 2 cards from the Main Deck at the start of their turn, plays the cards they wish to play, and then play moves in a clockwise direction.

Tip: During the first two rounds, no Attack Cards can be played. Use this time wisely to prepare yourself!

That’s it, you now know how to play Badly Drawn Death! Before long you and your friends will be beating seven bells out of each other...
