The last person who had a holiday drink is the first Diss-Master. They draw a diss card from from the pile and read it out loud to the group — trying to keep a straight face and to not immediately call out the person they think fits the card best. Each player grabs their marker and their whiteboard and writes down the best answer to the question or prompts. Prompts range from “Who needs help just attaching a PDF to an email? This person is the most clueless when it comes to technology, to “This family member would make a terrible pilot, considering they can’t even land a joke!”  Then it’s time to judge the answers. This is the first way that the game’s open-ended play leans into the possibility of house rules: The judge can award points based on whatever criteria they want! Funniest, grossest, cutest — no matter how the judge decides to pick, they choose their favorite response and the player who wrote it earns a point. The game ends when a player wins 10 cards — or gets fed up with being called out. Got yourself a tie-breaker? That’s up to you to decide how to handle it.
