Modal Switchit: Impossibility

Nearly all the cards focus on “impossibility” (the original name of the game) by asking permission, possibility and about ability using “Can I/you…?” to elicit “No, I can’t.”. In English we usually give “No!” plus reason, so… “Can you lend me some money?” “No! (No, I can’t.) I need all this money for myself.” In the rules I have suggested that a qualifier be added when the answer is ‘yes’. “Can you clean my shoes?” “Yes, I can. But it will cost you.”
