One thing I really like about this game is that non-gamers are usually happy to jump in and play.
Zack Davisson
This game is completely unfair, the rules are vague, confusing, inconsistent, incomplete and even the game developers argue about them on their website.
G. Hellings
Although some of the rules can get confusing, overall it's a great game that's easy to learn and play.

This is an excellent card game, so long as you are willing to imagine brutalising your friends. It is, of course, all in good fun.

A normal game lasts just a few minutes (two player games are exceedingly short and often one-sided, so play with a group), so it is good as a time-filler or to play a series of games with.

In play, each player can pick on anyone at the table, so one person will often be victimised for a few turns until they are ousted or a the cards make someone else a better victim. "Going with the flow" and petty revenge often dictate victims, rather than a solid strategy, so the greatest fun is had when describing the exact circumstances that lead up to your friend recieving a boot in the unmentionables.

Coupled with a group of active imaginations, this game is hilarious (if violent). Check out the expansion set also.

If you have a dark, sarcastic nature, this game's for you.

The basic premise: you're schoolkids fighting over lunch money. Eveybody has 15 points, and you have to get your opponents down to 0 ("unconscious") before they do the same to you. Half the game is trash talk, which is not only encouraged but often mandatory.

The good: Pretty simple to learn (with a few exceptions -- see "the bad") and games are really quick. Unlike Magic The Gathering and such, there's a finite number of card titles, all of which come in the box, so you won't blow a small fortune on cards trying to get the choice ones. Since there are maybe 20 card (titles) total, it makes it relatively easy to get the hang of. A key element of the game is trash talking, so if you and your friends enjoy good-natured ribbing each other, you'll definately get into it.

The bad: if you're not used to this type of game, it can be a moderately steep learning curve. A lot of the cards have exceptions-to-the-rules status, so most beginning players will probably spend some time consulting the rules each turn to verify their understanding, and that slows things down. If a card has a special bonus to it, it's not listed on the card itself but in the rules. It took my friends and I about 10 to 15 hands for all the stuff to sink in. Even then, there's some ambiguity in the rules on certain situations. Perhaps the biggest problem is that, with a finite number of card titles, the game has the potential to get stale after a while (as in a month or two.)

Over-all, this is a fun game, but its violent premise and inherent trash talking mean it definately isn't for everyone.

Lunch Money is about ten years old. It is in desperate need of an overhaul. This game is sorta fun, but it gets old a little fast. The art is gothic and pretty photography, with little witty (or silly) puns and such. Some will make players laugh and others will make them groan.

The rules can be found pretty much anywhere, but basically you're a schoolgirl (I guess you can pretend to be a ninja or whatever if ya want) beating up other schoolgirls for their.. Lunch Money. Most cards have a number value printed, and they cause that number in damage to an opponent. There are a few life gaining cards, and when attacked, a player can play dodge or block cards to avoid taking damage. Some cards combo with others for more damage or to counter damage and instead cause the attacker to slip up and get "hurt".

That's pretty much the good on this game. As old as it is, the faint colored hues (4 colors for 4 categories of cards, in antique yellow, blue, orange, and red hues basiccally) can sometimes be mistaken for another color. Why the publisher doesn't give a solid border (at the very least) around each card, I don't get.

After that, the confusion at teaching a new player this game can be frustrating. I tried teaching it to a friend, and his being colorblind lead to us putting it back in frustration. The constant consultation with the rules (for newbies and myself, as I've not played in a couple of years) wasn't fun. If you play regularly, the rules should pose no problems, but for noobs and returners, it's not fun AT ALL.

Additionally, 90% of the game's problems would be solved with rules printed somewhere (whether a text block or sort of circling the border, either mechanic would be fine) on each card.

Lunch Money is a card game which is quite enjoyable to play, once you become familiar with the rules. While some card games have many of the rules on the cards (see most Steve Jackson games for example), you'll need to know the rules well to play these game smoothly. Fortunately, they aren't terribly complicated and are actually quite intuitive, as the game imitates a street fight very well and the rules fit the moves perfectly. This game is also very quick to play, which is a welcome change from the full hour many card games require. In the two-player games I played, only a few minutes were needed for each game.
The problem I encountered was convincing additional people to join us. You see, this game is extremely creepy, and whether you'll find it humorous or terrifying depends on your personality. The cards consist mostly of monochrome images of little threatening girls, along with a flavorful quote. Some people will jump right in, but others will stay away. Other than this, however, the game is quite enjoyable and highly recommended.
