For playable rules, read the "Working Rules" section. The following rules are limited to what appeared on the sitcom New Girl and are missing significant information.
Teams are optional. To pick teams, everyone holds up a random number of fingers against their foreheads. You are teamed up with anyone else that is holding up the same number of fingers as you. Unmatched players can team up as needed.
The castle is made up of cans of beer and a bottle of liquor. The bottle of liquor is the king of the castle. The beers are Pawns which are the Soldiers of the Secret Order. The Pawns are lined up in four lines radiating outward from the King.
There are four zones and an alternate zone is a "crazy" zone. There is a trail of chairs, cushions, tables, etc through the zones. The floor is molten lava. You must use these objects to traverse the zones without stepping in the lava. The Castle is in the middle of the zones.
The game starts with a shotgun tipoff. Then, someone chants “One, two, three, four, JFK!” and all other players yell “FDR!” at which point everyone runs to the center table, grabs a beer and picks the nearest object to stand on.
Players take turns attempting to earn moves. There are three actions that can be taken on a turn.
Here are some other random rules.
