How to Play
The oldest player will be the first judge, drawing the top 3 Cartoon Cards and choosing their favorite. He or she places that one on the easel so that the caption on the bottom is covered and discards the other two options.
All players except the judge look at the Cartoon Card on the easel and write the funniest caption they can to impress the judge. Players then pass their submissions into the judge, who reads all the written captions out loud and chooses their favorite. Best caption wins!
Finally, to close out the round, the judge reads the original caption on the cartoon, and players discuss whose caption is better: the winner of the round, or the original!
