In 2005, Penn Jillette sponsored a contest for the DVD release of his documentary, The Aristocrats. The best submissions of the joke, The Aristocrats, would be included on the DVD.

Being an insane game designer, I produced this game. Well, actually, I basically ripped off the game Uno, which in turn rips off the game Crazy Eights, which in turn rips off the Socratic Method. Penn, proving far too sane, declined to publish the game, so I present it here for all of you now. The Aristocrats, the game, is my telling of the joke. I tell it through the cards, through the rules, and through you the players.

The Aristocrats is designed to be printed on PlainCards. Simply print the document cards.pdf on the front of the cards. If you got the PlainCards with blanks on both sides, print the document, card backs.pdf on the back (print 9 copies of card backs.pdf). Print the rules on a plain sheet of paper. Ideally, the game should be stored in a plain brown unmarked wrapper on your game shelf.
