Trading Races: A Party Game for Black Culture
Can you Out-Black your opponent?
Yes, absolutely. We all have a construct of how we
define blackness. So why not have a conversation about it?
The rules are simple. The discussions won’t be.
Play of the Hand
The first dealer is chosen at random. Deal 5 cards to each player. The player to the dealer’s left leads. Each player, in turn, clockwise, selects a card from their hand that reflects a higher level of blackness. Players must come to a consensus on which card is blacker. The player with the winning card wins the book. Play through all cards in hand, then deal again. The player with the most books wins the game.
