THE RULES OF THE GAME
Q. How does Fun Fact work?
Fun Fact has three simple steps: Join, Write, and Guess!
Join. The game host selects a topic deck, gets a secret code, and shares it with other players. Players “JOIN A GAME” and input the secret code.
Write. Fill in a blank with the truth about yourself or use one of our amazing prompts for inspiration.
Guess! Match the fact with the player and earn points. The more rounds you play, the more chances you have to win.
Q. What are the rules for my fun fact?
When it comes to writing your fun fact, there’s only one rule… it has to be true. After all, a fact is something that is known to exist or has happened, a truth. The sky’s the limit from there!
Q. How do I come up with my fun fact?
All of the category decks contain prompts related to the category which is essentially sentence starters or ideas to inspire your very own fun fact. Feel free to select and complete any of the prompts. Use the green arrow at the bottom of the prompts to scroll through all of the options. If you are feeling inspired on your own, feel free to fill in an entirely unique fun fact… we find the fun fact originals to be the most creative and the hardest to guess!
Q. Does everyone have their own fun fact?
Unless two people in a game share the same truth that they happen to reveal at the same time, all of the facts will be unique to the individual. Prompts are displayed randomly and in a different order for each player so it’s unlikely two people in a single game will use the same prompt… but it’s fun if it happens! And given that we have countless prompt options, the likelihood is that everyone will use a different prompt.
Q. How do I win?
If you correctly match the fun fact with the player, you earn points. The less likely your friends are to associate your fun fact with you, the more likely they are to guess incorrectly and earn a point for your fact. So… think creatively with your fun fact AND guess well to earn points.
Q. How does the scoring functionality work? Are points saved to my profile?
For the first round, earn one point for every correct guess. For the second round, earn two points for every correct guess. For the third round, earn three points for every guess. And so on…. When you start a new game, even with the same players, points are not saved and everyone gets a fresh start.
Q. How many people can play a game?
You need a minimum of three people to play the game. You can play with as many people as you want but it may be tricky to remember the facts with more than 15 players!
