I recently wandered upon the thread below. Those who do not have 7 questions per card, this would explain it.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1066846/question-about-c...

I've noticed that some of my groups here go with the variant that you pick whichever question you want. The effects have been...
+pick a question that interests you and/or the group as a whole
+avoid stuff that no1 would really know (e.g. certain sports, pop culture)

-may give that player or others who are really familiar with it an advantage that's unfair
-takes more time as each player goes through all the questions. Giving a card ahead of time can give that player more time to prep


After a few games of this method, I'm thinking about going back to in numerical order for the next card.

I recently bought the game and plan on playing it soon with friends.
I am thinking I may do this, pick a question from the card, but only if the question is too Americanized.

Heh... for a bunch of folks who claimed to not know a lot of American general knowledge, they made out pretty well in some of our games.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!
