The set up: 3-6 players works best. Start with a pre rolled blunt or blunts, a lighter and an ashtray, spread the deck into a circle with the ashtray, lighter, and blunts in the middle of the circle.

 

Game play: everyone picks up 7 cards (from anywhere) newest person to the game picks up an 8th card and places it face up in the middle of the circle to start the discard pile, game play starts with the person to the left of the “newest” person.

You have to match either by the number, color, or the special command cards. For instance, if the discard pile has a red card that’s an 8 you must place either a red card or a card with an 8 on it. You can also play a wild card (which will alter the current color in play)

If the player has no matches they must draw from the draw pile, if that card can be played, play it. Otherwise they must continue to pick up cards until they can play one. They have up to 4 chances to get a playable card if not their turn is over. When you get down to one card don’t forget to say “BLUNTO” or another player can call it for you and they’ll receive the blunt and you’ll receive a penalty card.

 

When someone wins the remaining players must do the “Blunto Salute” (hand from table to forehead) as quickly as they can, last one to salute loses judged by the winner (who doesn’t salute)
