Oh no! You're throwing a party, and the guests will be here soon. Find four cheeses and three other foods to feed them or they'll be mad!

Notes

When you draw these cards, you should include a witty or amusing picture between the title and the type of the card. Many cards lend themselves well to this sort of thing.

Feel free to remove, rename, or drastically alter the Partygoer Actions. They are somewhat self-referential to the party where this deck was invented and may not make sense for your gathering.

Rules created by the New Rule Action become permanent members of your Special Rules set for your deck. Please post interesting ones on the Talk:Cheese! deck page, but don't edit our canonical deck here.

Special Rules

  • You may play cards onto other players or their personal area. Most cards make it clear who legal victims are.
  • When any player amasses four cheeses and three other foodstuffs (crackers, beverages, etc.), s/he immediately wins the game.
  • Turns include a new phase before the draw phase. This is the Barter phase. The player may propose and carry out any sort of trade (goods, services, etc.) with any player.
  • When a player plays a cheese Thing for the first time in the game, s/he must read its caption in a dramatic voice before the end of his/her turn. Otherwise, s/he must discard the cheese.
  • Optional rules if the game moves too quickly or slowly:
    • A simple majority of players may vote to raise or lower the number of cheeses or other foodstuffs required to win.
    • The Refrigerator protects only a single cheese in play, not all of a player's cheeses.

Reverse Card
Action
Play immediately, not just on your turn. Counts as your action for your current or next turn. Reverse the last action that targeted you or something you control; discard it.
RaNdOm!
Action
Each player needs to count how many Things they have in play. Do not count Things which are attached to other Things (like Mold). Instead, remember which Thing they target. Collect all in-play Things from all players, shuffle them, and redistribute them so that each player has the same number they originally had. Finally, determine who got each targeted Thing and reattach the effect Things (so if Player A had Feta with a Mold card, now that Player B has Feta, that Feta is still Mold-y).
To The Left
Action
All players pass all played cards to the player on their left. Editors note: when this card was created, its picture was a huge arrow that pointed to the right. Not sure why.
Dumpster Diving
Action
Root through the discard pile and take any card of your choice into your hand. If it is a Thing, you may play it this turn as your Thing.
Google
Action
Take anyone's played Thing card and place it into play under your control.
New Rule
Action
Starting with you and moving in the opposite direction to how you take turns, each player may add a rule without requiring a vote, or may veto any rule which has been proposed because of this card. When the last player has made or vetoed a rule, you receive one more veto if you desire (even if you already made a rule at the beginning).
