Ugly Car

A game invented by us to pass the time in the car...(inspired by Slug Bug)

The rules are as follows:

Choose up to 4 cars that you deem to be ugly. These cars are worth one point each.
For example; right now our four cars are:
  • Scion xB
  • Honda Element
  • Pontiac Aztec
  • Hummer
Each player also chooses one "dream car," or car that they would like to own, that is common enough to be seen on a somewhat regular basis. In other words, you would not want to pick a rare car like a Lamborgini. These cars are worth one point to the person whose dream car it is and two points to any one of their opponents. 
For example;
  • Mini Cooper
  • Xterra
Other Eligible Vehicles:
  • A MILITARY USE Hummer is worth two points
  • A Hummer Limo is worth three points
  • An Original Beetle is worth five points
Rules of Play:
  1. Play begins with the players deciding upon a timeframe for the particular game; it could be a few hours, days or even weeks. 
  2. Play continues with competitors "slugging" each other to attain points. The player with the most points at the end of the agreed upon time period is the winner. Prizes CAN be determined before gameplay begins. (For example, we are currently playing a game in which the loser has to do something "ridiculously romantic" for the winner on Valentine's Day).
  3. If both players attempt to "slug" each other at the same time, the tie is broken by a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with the winner receiving the point(s). 
Additional Rules:
  1. If a VW Bus is "played" two things can happen:
    1. One - if the player who is losing at the time "wins" the bus they swap scores with their opponent; 
    2. Two - if the player who is winning at the time "wins" the bus then they have effectively protected their score from being stolen by their opponent
  2. If the paint-job on the car detracts even more from it's appearance the player can "lobby" for an additional point.
  3. A car covered in company logos is automatically worth two points.
  4. Any eligible car painted pink ends the game, immediately, no questions asked.
  5. If a Pink Hummer-Limo is played, the games ends FOREVER. Seriously, could you imagine a Pink Hummer-Limo?! It can't be beat...
We have been playing this game for a while now. I think we came up with it our Junior year of College. Every time someone rides with us while we are in the middle of the game they look at us like we are crazy... Which, is probably not too off-base...
