It's not about being the best candidate...
It's about making everyone else look worse.
It's the last debate for the Presidency of the United States, and only one of the players can go on to be the Commander-In-Chief! Naturally, the winner will be the person who is most qualified to lead.
By "most qualified to lead," we of course mean "most ruthless mudslinger who doesn't give two shits about other people".
Similar to "Apples to Apples", ERAUGH! involves players answering the moderator's question (that's based on the red Topic Cards) by telling a malicious lie about another one of the candidates (basing the lie on one of the blue Answer Cards in their hand).
Once everyone has had their turn at being Moderator, whoever has the most Supporters wins the Presidency of the United States!
