The Party Game of
Clueless Bounty Hunters
Mini Edition
4 to 8+ players
PREMISE
You and your friends are clueless Bounty Hunters
whose goals are to collect as many Targets as
possible by completing Missions. The object of the
game is to collect as many Targets as possible.
Bounty Hunter – As a Hunter, it is your job to
convince The Boss why you are best suited to
complete the Mission.
45 minutes
Ages 17+
THE CARDS
Targets: Who your Mission is centered on.
Locations: Where you’ll be doing the deed.
Each Location card lists three points of
interest that you can use to your advantage.
Objectives: What the purpose of the Mission is.
The Boss – As The Boss for the round, you have two
jobs. At the start of the round, you determine the
Mission; at the end of the round, you decide which
Bounty Hunter gave the best pitch.
Each round, the Mission is crafted by The Boss
using three cards: the Target, the Location, and
the Objective. The Boss should use those cards as
prompts to help craft a story.
Items: How you’ll complete the Mission;
your bread n’ butter. These cards are various
objects (abstract or otherwise) that you bring
with you into the Mission.
HOW TO PLAY
Shuffle each of the four card decks
independently and have them available face down.
The player with the bossiest attitude is
designated as The Boss for the first round.
The rest of the players become Bounty Hunters.
Round of Play — Each player draws five Item
cards. The Boss will also draw one Target card,
one Objective card, and one Location card.
These three cards make up a Mission.
Mission Creation — The Boss looks at the Mission
cards, crafts and tells the Mission’s story, and lays
down each Mission card as it is referenced. Please
note that these cards are meant only as prompts.
Here’s an example Mission:
I have a job. There’s this Obnoxious News Anchor
reporting in the middle of a Forest. He’s doing a
special on hunting innocent woodland creatures,
and I want you to Punch Him Into The Afterlife, so he
doesn’t bother them anymore.

PITCHES
The Pitch — Going clockwise from The Boss,
each Hunter takes turns presenting how they will
accomplish the Mission. Each Player lays the Item
cards they want to use in their pitch face down
until everyone is ready to begin. Players should
take about 30 seconds to lay out their plan. As
you present your pitch, reveal Item cards as they
become relevant. Players can use one or two cards
per round.
Here’s an example Pitch:
Alright, so I’ll lure the Obnoxious News Anchor over
to my position with my Flare Gun. He’ll see the light
over the Forest canopy and think, ‘There’s a story
there!’ Then, faintly In the distance, he’ll start to
hear some music. As he gets closer, he realizes...it’s
Nickelback. I’m using my Boombox that Only Plays
Nickelback to distract him. Then, I’ll jump out of the
tree I’m positioned in, and I’ll punch him so hard he
ends up in the afterlife.
THE END
End of Round — After all the Hunters pitch,
The Boss chooses a winner for the round.
That player receives the Target card as their trophy,
and can choose one Item card that was played
during the round. The chosen Item card is now
permanent, does not count against your hand limit,
and remains face-up on the table. You may use only
one of these permanent Item cards per round. The
remaining cards on the table are placed in discard
piles and each player draws back up to five cards.
The role of The Boss moves to the next player
clockwise and a new round begins.
The game ends after everyone has been The Boss.
The winner is the one with the most Target cards
total by the end of the game.
TIE BREAKING & ALT. RULES
Tie Breakers — One final mission will be given to
those who are tied by the player who has the least
amount of points. If everyone is tied, the game
will end but just as a tie in real life, it will leave you
unsatisfied and annoyed.
Dead or Alive – Instead of using the Objective
cards during each mission, players will instead try to
capture the Target dead or alive each round, which
will be decided by The Boss.
Skiptrace was intentionally designed as a modular
game, so there are lots of ways you can modify the
base rule set if you choose! Maybe you like playing
with a timer to keep the pacing up, or perhaps you
want to award different mission cards to different
hunters based on the strengths of their pitch?
It’s all up to you!
