Who doesn’t love a good debate? Ok, so I know a lot of people who don’t actually like a good debate. But I do. However, sometimes they can get a bit nasty. People will attack each-other’s arguments or just go after each-other. Well, that’s not a problem in Sway. Things are kept light-hearted, as you’re only able to discuss the positive aspects of your topic.
The game is pretty simple (as every good party game should be. You don’t want to get bogged down in teaching a half-dozen people a whole bunch of rules). First, a player spins the little spinner to determine their debate opponent. They then flip a Challenge card. Challenges are odd things that you must do while debating your topic. They’re such things as use a Scottish accent or make animal noises or other such twists. The first player then flips their Topic Card. Topic Cards have 2 topics on them, and you can pick which one you want to discuss. They then have 30sec to describe all the positive aspects of that topic. When their time is up, the debate opponent (as chosen by that spin earlier), flips their own Topic Card and also discusses the positive aspects of one topic. After their 30sec is up, another spin of the spinner determines the Judge, who decides who has the better argument and awards points accordingly. Play then passes along and continues until one player has accrued enough points to win.
