Bring the Pain: The World of Lunch Money

It's a lot like a real fight — only without all that slippery blood.

In Lunch Money, playground rules are in full effect. Don't start something you can't finish, and no running off to tattle to the teachers. This is a knock-down, drag-out fight full of loose teeth, dirty tactics, and humiliating taunts. Take out your opponents and steal their lunch money.

Bring on the headbutts, pokes in the eye, and chants of "Missed me! Missed me! Now you gotta kiss me!"

Throw the First Punch: Gameplay Basics

The rules of Lunch Money are simple: each player attacks, discards, or passes. Successful attacks siphon off counters from the loser's pile. Players who run out of counters fall unconscious and lose the game.

String together devastating combos or pick up weapons to make the most of each attack. Throw combatants off their game with counter attacks, disarm moves, or sing-song taunts. Narrate your neighborhood battle.

The last combatant standing wins the game…and all of the lunch money.

Lunch Money can be played with five or more players. Just add a second set of cards and let the brawl begin!
