Jesus Christ is Lord of my life.
One day some friends and I were playing Cheat and we only had a Wizard deck to play with, so we decided to play with the extra cards. We ended up coming with a really cool variant.

Here's how to play

At the start of the game, each player is given one Jester and one Wizard to put into their hand. (Not sure how this would work with more than 4 players)


The Jester is a dead card. You must get rid of it as well to win but the only way to rid of it is to lie.

This card changes up the game in that everyone has to lie once, even if they are dealt a perfect hand.


The Wizard is a wild card. It can be played as any card.

This card also changes up the game in that even if someone has all 4 two's, you could play a wizard as a two and still be telling the truth. You could even play 8 kings in theory. It really adds another level to bluffing.

I hope you enjoy trying this variant. I feel that this is the best way to play Cheat and won't be playing any other way.
