HOW TO PLAY
There are two ways to play Hot Takes. Both start by picking a judge and having them read a card — we suggest the player who talks the most goes first. In the first version, after hearing the Hot Take on the card, separate into teams based on who agrees or disagrees. Then, take turns crafting and presenting your argument to the judge and the other team. You get two minutes to prove why your side is the obviously correct side. Afterward, the judge picks a winner, and everyone on that team gets a point! In the second version, everything is the same except you don't split into teams. Instead, gather in a circle and announce your opinions and reasoning one by one. In the end, the judge picks which side made more sense, and everyone who voted that way wins a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of 5 rounds wins!
