An Overview Of The Card Game Named Zero
By Tom Seest
ZERO is a trivia game where the goal is to think of the least popular answer to a trivia question. It requires some effort to come up with the answer, but it does not require a brain injury to win.
The game consists of a deck of cards, which are dealt to two to four players. The top card in the deck is turned face up. Players draw cards from the deck and discard cards from their hands. Using the top card as a reference, players try to collect sets of cards of the same color.
The rules of the game are fairly simple. Players take turns drawing from the deck and discarding cards. They can also collect a number, but only if they can guess the number correctly. The winner is the player who has the least number of cards in their hand at the end of the round.
The game includes eighty-four character cards, two six-sided dice, and an entry form. The cards are designed to be used by players of all ages.
The game features a bonus round, where players who land on the bonus space answer a trivia question. They then move backward on the board to ten spaces from the Z space. The question is a standard one.
The game also has a scoring system that rewards players for their risk-taking. If a player reaches zero, the round ends immediately. If a player reaches four 5s, they score five points.
