Nerdier Red Flags Rules

After all the cards are flipped over, the matchmakers select a red flag card from their hand to play on the player’s left hand, one at a time. The red flags are used to sabotage another player’s date. The player who has been on the most dates is a good first-time single.

Once the single chooses a date, the player to the left becomes the new single, and the player to the left plays a red flag on the player to their left. The game continues until one player reaches seven points.

How to Play Nerdier Red Flags Card Game

To play Nerdier Red Flags, pick a player to be the single, and everyone else takes four points and three red flags. After all the perks are read, each player plays a red flag on the player to their left. The single must assume that they can date this person long term. The player to the left becomes the new single, and the first player with seven points wins.


At the start of each round, the judge does not make a date, and players starting with the judge’s left play two white perk cards to make up the date. The player to the judge’s left picks a red flag card to play on the date of the player to their left. This continues around the table until all dates have a red flag.

After each round, all players discard their hands, draw back up to four perks and three red flags, and start a new round. The player who played the red card gets to keep that red card as a marker, like a tracker of points. 

Shorter Play

For a short game, play twice around the table. For a longer game, say that the first player to seven points wins. Nerdier Red Flags is an exciting expansion pack that adds a fun nerdy twist to the game Red Flags, making it perfect for nerdy people.

Winning the game

To win Nerdier Red Flags, players must accumulate seven points by successfully setting up the best date for the “Single” player and sabotaging the dates of the other players. 


When a player’s date is picked by a single player and when a player successfully plays a red flag card on another player’s date, they will get points. The game can be played for a short duration by playing twice around the table, or for a more extended period by setting the goal to seven points.
