A while back we recommended the kickstarter of this card based word game and now that it’s backers have got their rewards it’s rolling out to stores worldwide. Designed by Irish man Colm Lundberg as a something suitable to play with families while retaining the type inappropriate humour of games like Cards Against Humanity it’s a great casual game for 3-8 players.
How It Works:
There are two decks of cards, one with the topics and ones with possible responses, players take turns in being the judge, the first is the player one who fell in love most recently. the judge picks the top card of the topic card deck and decides if the players should give reasons why they Love or Hate the topic. For example when I drew the topic babies I wanted to know what the other players hate about babies
The players choose one card from five response cards they have and place it face down in a pile in the middle of the table
The judge shuffles them up and then lays them out, then picks whichever one they think fits the topic best or is the funniest or what ever criteria suits at the time.
In the case of the Babies I chose I hate the way babies stick to the roof of my mouth as the winner, the player who gave that answer is given the topic card to represent the point they won.
A new player becomes judge, play continues like that until one player has won five rounds.
It’s a very simple game, with a nice flow to the play and the choice of a negative or positive for each topic puts an enjoyable angle on each round. It’s quick, a game averages about 30 minutes, depending on how long you spend laughing. a lawless casual game suitable for most ages. It’s available from most brick and mortar stores or direct from the publisher Green Ronin
