ALL CARD GAMES
Bullshit, a simple bluffing game which is fun to play but though to win. Enjoy working out when your opponents are telling the truth or trying to “Bullshit” you.
Learn how to play Bullshit with these simple rules.
HOW TO PLAY BULLSHIT
All cards are dealt evenly between players. It does not matter if some players have one more card than others.
HOW TO WIN
The first player who gets rid of all of their cards is the winner. The game ends when there is a winner.
The first player plays one to four cards (or one to eight with two decks) face down in the center of the table. They declare how many cards they have played and what the cards are.
STEP 2: PLAYER TWO
The next player must then play one or more cards that are one higher or lower than the cards previously declared. In this example they can only declare their cards to be 3’s or 5’s.
Players do not need to tell the truth when they declare the cards they play.
STEP 3: CALLING BULLSHIT
Any player who believes someone else is not telling the truth can call Bullshit while placing their hand on the pile, this can be said at any time. After calling Bullshit the cards that were just played are turned over.
STEP 4: CHECKING THE CARDS
The cards are then checked to see if the number of cards and their value matches what was declared. If the accuser is correct then the lying player collects all the cards in the pile. If the accuser was wrong then they pick up all of the cards in the pile.
The game restarts with the player to the left of the player that picked up the cards. They can declare any cards.
The A can be played as a high or low card, i.e after a player declares 2’s or K’s the next player has the option to declare A’s
ENDING THE GAME
Whoever plays all their cards first wins. A new game is then started.

The lower the number of cards you declare the lower the chance of others calling ‘Bullshit”. You can sneak in more cards than you declare if you stack them together.
Finishing the game is the hardest part and you have to be telling the truth as the other players will always call Bullshit, the best way to win is for the player to your right to pick up the pile so one tip is to call Bullshit after their turn.
- A slightly different version is when players declare cards in sequence with the first player having to play A’s, the second 2’s and so on up to K’s.
- Allow players to play the same value card that was just played.
- Players can pass rather than play, when this happens they cannot rejoin until the round is finished. The round continues until all players have passed or Bullshit is called. You cannot touch the pile unless you call Bullshit.
