This game is not intended for a group of people who doesn’t know each other. This is not a recommendation; it is more of a warning, so that your night stays relaxed and funny. Instead of losing control of things and some feelings get hurt. That said, this is a popular game, and it has many positive reviews from game lovers. It is manufactured as a game for “horrible people”. If you can get pass this description, you and your group are up to the challenge.

In fact, it doesn’t really mean that the players are horrible people, but it suggests that the game is inappropriate. And it indeed is.

Without further ado, here are the rules of the game.

It is played with as many players as you like. Each player draws a card from the pile. On the card there are the inappropriate questions. Before the player himself answers the question, each of the other players should give the funniest answer they have. “The funniest answer” usually turns into making fun of everything around you. For this reason, if you believe a person could offend from the question or for being teased, look for his replacement. This is not a game for gentle souls!

Although there are many warnings, the game will make you smile more than any other game out there. However, eventually you will learn all the questions which appear on the cards. For this reason, I believe this is more of a DIY game than a game that you should by in a store. After all, by knowing all the persons in your group, you are the one who is most competent of writing the funniest questions. Choose the most controversial subjects in your group and pick questions which would lead to some inner joke you and your friends have.

This is a game which is perfect for competitive people who are enjoying the crowd. Believe me; it would get crowdy even if you have invited only a few people to the game night. The main reason for this is because if you want to win you have to be fast and you have to yell out the correct answer in order for other players to hear you. The yelling out is not a rule, but it is more of an advice. If you don’t yell, you might lose since everyone would be speaking at once and no one will hear you. This board game for adults is basically a game with 10 main fields. These fields are actually clues which help you answer the question on the card.

The game is easy to play and it can fit in any group of people, regardless their age and character. It is also very fun and interactive. As for the educational types of people, let’s just say that they will be more than satisfied.
