Even Zooey Deschanel Has No Idea How to Play “True American”

“True American,” New Girl‘s Rube Goldberg machine of a drinking game, is a national obsession. Since New Girl Season 1, we’ve longed to learn how to play this “life-sized Candy Land,” mostly because we all long to get incredibly, stone-cold drunk. There are so few things we know for sure about True American: the floor is molten lava, there’s a castle, everything you hear in the game is a lie, and you have to be aware of FDR’s existence. Because I am a truth seeker, I am currently filming my own Loose Change-esque documentary about the game and I have just happened upon a bombshell. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, New Girl star and Queen of Whimsy Zooey Deschanel revealed that even she doesn’t know the rules to True American — because True American doesn’t have any rules. She also tore Thanksgiving food a new cavity in which to stuff more bread chunks.
