We first played this at a friend's house and laughed so much and so hard we couldn't believe it! It's easy enough for anyone to play (we had a 7yo join us at one point, and even though it's a little more advanced than that, she had a great time).

The only downside is that once we played the game about 5-6 times (remember, for HOURS at a time - we never just played a quick game), we eventually got through most of the cards and some of the fun (but only SOME!) was gone because we knew what cards to give to each person to "win" the hand.

That said, we have also taken to "editing" the cards on the fly, basically creating our own cards, which adds to the fun. This is in addition to the 25 or so blank create-your-own cards that come with the game, which you really should take advantage of. We were hesitant, but after playing a few games, we knew what kind of things to write down and now some of those are the funniest choices.

This game has been tested with many different people (young and old, good friends, aunts and uncles) and it's always a hit. It's definitely worth the $20.

This is a great party game. You can play for hours. It was fun playing with people in our age group, but even more fun when we played at Thanksgiving with our parents. It was really funny to hear my mother-in-law read some of the cards. The only caveat is that you can't play it more than a couple of times with the same group of people. It gets old after a couple of hours.....

A terrific game; my friends and I enjoyed it very much. You learn a lot about people from playing this game with them. It's simple to learn. One player rolls a six-sided dice that says "I am or "I want", etc.. The other players have to pick a card that they think describes what the person likes or wants, or something that the person would find funny. Very easy to play- you can play for hours.
I highly recommend Boxers or Briefs to any age group.

We bought this for $19.99 Dec. 2007. We haven't seen this in any stores and after reading the reviews, decided to get it. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be a "family" game b/c some reviewers said it was "adult party" themed. This is not the case. There are some more adult-type humor (eg; questions about farting), but there's nothing inappropriate (there's no sexual content or anything, so you can play this game w/ your kids).

Everyone we've played it with has had a blast with it. it's a great party game, family/friend game, or couples just getting to know it each other. It's a lot of fun. The best description would be like a combination of Apples to Apples and Imaginiff, both fun games that we own.

The icing on the cake is that there's no game board (just a dice, question cards & tokens that you collect when the "it" player picks your answer), so you can play this laying on the couch, just relaxing.

This game has become a huge hit with friends. Another (different type) game suggestion is Sequence, a highly addictive, fun strategy game that's great for 2-6 players. See my review on Jumbo Sequence.

I just got this game a month ago and finally got around to playing it this past weekend. I played it with a group of 8 people and it ended up being a lot of fun. I was worried because some of the answer choices are kind of cheesy, but that ended up making it even funnier. This game is similar to Apples to Apples, but definetly a lot funnier. Everyone I played with didn't know each other that well, but it was still a lot of fun! With people who know you well it would be even more fun! So don't think you have to play it with only your close friends, it works with anyone.

I thought this game might be as horrible as that Fact or Crap game, but no way! This was HILARIOUS!! It was tame enough to play with my mother-in-law while at the same time dirty enough to play with my friends. Like the other reviewer said, you do need to plan your sips of drink carefully. Also, head to the bathroom BEFORE the cards are read. I look forward to playing this game again and again. LOVE IT!

This game is a riot! To steal a word from a great series of beer commercials, it's BRILLIANT! We've played this game 4 or 5 times now, and every time, it gets funnier. There are moments where you're fairly certain whatever beverage you're enjoying is going to come shooting our your nose as you or one of your friends read the lines from this great card-based game. "I can't do it Captain, I don't have the power", "I ran over the Taco Bell dog", "I'm big where it counts" and other lines have all left us in stitches. This is a whimsical, entertaining game that draws from both pop culture and history to get some of its best lines, and the ability to customize cards makes the game perfect for close circles of family and friends to be able to poke fun at one another (but surely only in jest, right? -- I don't really need a diet, do I Heather?)

Kudos to the designers of the game, and thanks to the R man for picking this game up for us to play. Will be very entertaining for our New Years' Eve party! Next, we'll need an additional set of cards from the folks at Hasbro/Parker Bros. to add to the collection of whimsy. Keep up the good work!

I bought this game after looking at all the reviews here, when I was looking for something other than Cranium because we play it all the time. It was a lot of fun, but kind of repetitive after a while. Not like Cranium where theres more interaction and movement, its just reading cards and sitting in one place. I think its a lot more fun the more people you read. Sometimes its hard to find a good answer with the options they give you on the cards, so its kind of hard to win without a lot of luck. Its sort of like Apples to Apples, but you're talking about a person instead of a subject. Fun though, its cheap enough that I would get it just to try it!

I picked up this game recently and my family really enjoys it. It's a slightly more adult version of Apples to Apples with a more personal perspective. Loads of fun!

BUT...

The new edition of this game has a flaw that I'm finding unforgivable. To cut down on printing costs, all of the questions from the previous 400 cards have been printed onto 200 cards, double sided. Not only does this mean that there are fewer cards to choose from, making choices limited, it also makes it harder to choose an answer (as you have 14 options with your 7 cards). On top of that, it's hard to tell what side of the card the judge is supposed to consider, especially if a card accidentally falls off the table.

Yes, there is a slight color variation between the sides, so you could say at the top of the game that only the white or slightly bluish side of the cards count, but where's the fun in that?

I think I'd LOVE this game with 400 (or More!) cards, but as it is... not so much.

This game is very easy to learn and very easy to play and the more people the merrier. We had a lot of good laughs playing it with our friends. The game moves along quickly and every player participates in every turn. Players take turns playing the host. The rest of the group chooses a card from their hand that they think will either match the host's "true" statement or that the host will find funniest. The host is the judge here. First player to accumulate 6 "chips" wins the game.
