Here’s How to Play Capital Punishment.


Shuffle the Main Deck and Punishment Deck. Deal each player five cards from the Main Deck. Place both decks in the middle of the table. Pick a first Judge. Everyone but the Judge can replace one card from their hand with another from the Main Deck at the beginning of each round.

Now, it’s time to pick one card from your hand and submit it to the Judge face-down. The Judge flips the cards once everyone has submitted.

*Legal Strategy Cards*

Look out for these when you draw from the Main Deck. They change court proceedings to your advantage (or others’ disadvantage), and they just might be your key to winning. Each card will tell you what it does and when you can use it.


Everyone gets a turn at making their “opening argument” to convince the Judge and other players that their card is the worst one on the table—for whatever hilarious, annoying, or awful reasons. Once everyone has said their piece, you can challenge others’ cases and enhance your own.

When the Judge has heard enough, they’ll decide which card is the worst of the worst.


Whoever played the card picked by the Judge wins the round. The Judge flips a Punishment Card. The Punishment Card and the points go to the winner. Rinse and repeat with a new Judge each round. That’s the game.

It all ends when one player gets to five points, or if someone plays the Whistleblower Strategy Card, or when the table gets flipped. Just kidding.

The Game in Five Steps

  • Pick a Judge.
  • Deal Five Cards to Every Player.
  • Pick a card you could make the case for being the worst, and submit it to the Judge.
  • Make your case for conviction. Defend your own case and challenge others’.
  • Judge decides and flips a Punishment Card. Winner gets points. Start again a new Judge.

    It was great fun. Loved being able to argue about who deserved the punishment !! Some of the named people
    Was sometimes hard to figure out who was the worst. But it was fun hearing the creative and passionate arguments

    Who would have thought that I would ever enjoy being in court with my friends! When it comes to capital punishment anything’s game! Love this card game, it became my new go to when friends are over.

  5. Braheem T.

    THIS GAME IS SO FUN!!! My girlfriend bought this game for our couple’s game night last week. If you think you know your friends and family, THINK AGAIN! Hearing how much your sister actually hates Floyd Mayweather and how much she defends Nicholas Cage’s movies is something to look forward to. I highly recommend this game !!

  6. Fetch Dixon

    Perfect Fun for the right group. My friends and I are performers, so we all started drinking and doing our best impressions of righteous southern lawyers from the Gone With The Wind days. It made the game an absolute blast. We loved it.

  7. Ron Coia

    Fun Game, Especially for Classroom Use. I look for good games to use in the classroom (I’m a high school teacher, English and Government). This is an excellent game that teaches argumentation, as well as having lots of fun. This is a lot like Snake Oil, and I think I like that game better than this one. I like this as well, though. Worth a try!

  8. David Hasslinger

    Such a fun game to play with your friends! This game had me and my friends in tears laughing! So fun!

  12. Montez Brown

    Great game and fun experience. Was hanging out with some of my friends and decided to pull out Capital Punishment. This is a warning, this game is hilarious but also really dark. This game is pretty interesting! Would recommend for anyone that knows pop culture or politics.
