Product Description

Product Description

You won’t believe the hilarious, creative, outrageous and unforgettable Things your friends will say during this provocative party game! Draw a topic card and read it out loud. “Things a chimp thinks about when he sees you at the zoo.” Then the other players write down their own responses: “You think I’m weird looking?” “What are you looking at?” or perhaps “Are you my mommy?” Then try to figure out who said what! Remember, you can write anything that comes to mind… so be as fun as you want!

From the Manufacturer

Laughter is what it's all about in The Game of Things. In each round, players write an answer to a topic such as "Things you would like to ask a psychic" or "Things you shouldn't do with glue." Answers can be as outrageous and hilarious or as straight-forward and precise as you like. Everybody then takes turns trying to eliminate each other by guessing which player wrote which answer. The last person left wins the round. The Game of Things comes packaged in a wooden box with a sliding lid. Contents of The Game of Things: 300 Topic Cards, 1 Answer Pad, 1 Score Pad and Instructions.

WOW!! Played this game for this first time on Halloween! This game is HILARIOUS!! Each player takes turns reading a card...then ALL players write down their answer without showing anyone...the "reader" then reads the answers aloud and each person must try to guess whom might have wrote that particular answer. Questions like "What you might find in a library" gets a whole new meaning when you are with a group of great, funny, close friends! This game is great for any get together...the more the merrier with this outrageous game!!

My husband and I are in our late 20's and host many couple game nights. We are always looking for games that get everyone laughing. We already own and love playing Loaded Questions and this game is very similar. A card is read, "things you shouldn't laugh at", "things you would like to do in a blackout", "things you wish were delivered", or "things that jiggle". Every player writes an anonymous answer and others have to guess who gave what answer. In Loaded Questions, one player per round tries to match the quotes to each player. This is a key difference in the Game of Things. Each player gets a chance to match a quote with another player during a round, if they are correct they get a point and try to match another person to a quote. If they miss, the next player tries to match and so on.

Some reviews say that this game is slow and boring but I think it depends on the group of people you are playing with. The level of fun depends on the creativity of your group and how risque you want to be. Obviously answers can be more serious or everyday..."things that jiggle." Answer: Jello. Answers like this might make the game boring but if you have a creative, spicy group of people then prepare for laughing until you might wet yourself.

Another reason people might see this game as slow is how the answers are written and given. Everyone gets a sheet of paper that is made of perforated strips. You write your answers on the strips, give them to the reader, and then people one by one try to match. Sometimes the answers have to be read more than once so that people can think who might have given which answer (a similar issue in Loaded Questions). Repeat readings would be especially needed if you are playing with a large group of people.

This is one of those games that has to be tried out, and once you do, it's really funny. What it does is bring out the comedian in everyone. There's a point system, and it's fun trying to figure out who said what, but like Balderdash, what starts to happen is, people start to go for the laughs instead of the score. Running jokes start to appear - previous answers that make little sense for the new question, but they make everyone laugh. We've played the game where people in the group are still reminding each other of one particular answer a year later.

Bought this game yesterday with high hopes for fun! We have a group of friends that like to play games and this one seemed perfect for us. While we had moments of great laughter and fun, it was mostly way too slow. We will hopefully play again (I may have to do some convincing to the group though!), but will do so with some modifications taken from other similar games. One suggestion: get a dry erase board to write responses down on....makes it move quicker when you don't have to repeat the answers over and over.

This game is so insanely funny. I had seen it characterized as blah in a review and, with all due respect, I thought that if your group is blah, the game could be blah. It's the answers that spark the hilarity and when you get the question "Things you will do after your retire" and someone's response is "Nude luging with Ted Nugent" I'd say it's a pretty good time.

I've played it twice, once in a large group and once in a small group. It was challenging in the large group and really easy with the minimum four, but as with most games like this, it's the game play and not the winning that counts.

Set-up:

1 player reads a question (e.g. "What is the best TV show", "Craziest place you've been to") and all other players secretely write answers. All answers are put together, and the question-giver reads them out loud, one-by-one. Each person guesses which of the other players wrote which response. If the guesser is correct, he/she collects the piece of paper from the question-giver, and gets to keep guessing. If wrong, the next player gets a chance to guess "who wrote what", and so on and so on... The round ends when all comments are guessed, and the Question Giver" role passes to the next player. This continues, around and around and around until everyone has a turn.

I played this game twice. The first time we had 8+ people and it was HORRIBLE. It took forever for people to guess who wrote what. Around and around and around and around, and no one figured out who wrote what. FINALLY, someone guess correctly, but they then missed the next guess, so their turn was passed to the next player who had to guess. Around and around and around... you get the idea?

Second time I played was with exactly 8 people, and again, it took forever. Literally, I think it was 2-hours.

Summary:
I can see some potential, but if you really like the premise, I'd recommend keeping it to < 6 people.

I have a lot of games, and some of the best party games are as follows:
1) Werewolves of Millers Hollow(aka Mafia - 9+ players and it's AWESOME)
2)
