Recommended on deaffriendly.com, this fast-paced card game may be better suited to an all-deaf/HoH group. Players take turns being the 'storyteller', who gives a hint about an image card in their hand. The other players try find a card in their hand that also fits that description and gives it to the storyteller. The storyteller then shuffles the selected cards with the real one and displays them, and the players guess which card was the storyteller's. The storyteller's goal is for at least one player–but not all–to guess correctly; the other players get points for guessing the correct card and also for their own card being guessed.
