GUATAFAC

Things you need to know before starting to play

Multiple editions

GUATAFAC is a wild party game that has seen great success with several versions released. The gameplay mechanics are consistent across all editions, so if you learn to play the original GUATAFAC, you can play them all.

Here’s what the original GUATAFAC looks like.

Let’s focus on the original GUATAFAC for now, and then we’ll discuss the other versions.

icon players

Number of players

It’s designed for 3 or more players and really shines with larger groups of up to 10 or 12 players. In our opinion, it’s also suitable for 2 players.

16+ icon

Recommended for ages 16 and up.

Just to be clear, it’s a hilariously ‘racy’ game with questions not suitable for kids and probably not for playing with your parents either 😉

Turns

Each turn, a player asks a question — they’re the ‘GUATAFAC Master’ for that turn — and the player to their left must give one or several answers.

First GUATAFAC Master

Who acts as the GUATAFAC Master in the first turn? You can decide however you want. According to the game rules, it’s the player with the lowest IQ 😂, just to give you an idea of what the game is like.

Goal of the game

Who will win?

The player who scores 7 points by correctly answering 7 questions wins.

Playing a round of GUATAFAC

Setting up the cards

Create a small deck of about 40 or 50 cards — the game comes with 400 — and place it face down in the center of the table.

Question icon

Question

The GUATAFAC Master for that turn takes the first card from the deck and reads it aloud.

8 seconds to respond

The player to the left of the GUATAFAC Master has 8 seconds to give their answers.

icon rules

Valid answers… or not

After the 8 seconds are up, there are two possible outcomes:

Icono exito

If the answers were given within the time and the GUATAFAC Master accepts them, acting as the supreme judge at that moment, the player who answered keeps the card and earns a point.

Icono error

If answers are missing, or didn’t come within the 8 seconds, or the GUATAFAC Master deems that one of the answers is just way off, then the player who answered doesn’t earn any points, and the card is set aside.

Next turns

The player who answered in the previous turn becomes the new GUATAFAC Master and the player to their left answers. And so on.

More cards

If the deck runs out, a new one is created with different cards.

Choosing not to answer is an option

While the game includes some risqué questions and others that someone might consider politically incorrect, there’s always the option not to answer them, and that’s it. It’s a perfectly valid choice that everyone should accept and respect to ensure that the whole group feels comfortable and has fun playing, which is what it’s all about.

End of the game. Who wins?

And the winner is…

The game ends when one of the players reaches 7 points, making them the winner.

GUATAFAC Drinking Variant

It’s easy to turn GUATAFAC into a drinking game. Just add two rules:

Everyone drinks.

If you lose, you drink

If the player who has to answer doesn’t do it correctly, they have to drink.

Everyone drinks.

If you win, you choose who drinks

If you answered correctly, you not only earn a point but also get to choose a player to drink.

We encourage you to explore and learn the general rules of Drinking Games.

GUATAFAC Scapegoat Variant

Another variation of the game involves the GUATAFAC Master choosing who should answer the question. They can read it in secret and then decide who they want to respond.

The GUATAFAC Master’s turn then passes successively to the player on the left so that everyone has the same chance to ask and choose who responds.
