Product Description

Product Description

Scruples makes players sweat as they ask each other what they would do in a moral predicament. Luckily no one has to tell the truth and there's no right answer! Scruples inspires hours of stimulating conversation and laughter. Get to know people in unexpected ways.

Amazon.com

Are you as scrupulous as you think? Put yourself to the test with Scruples. There are 252 Dilemma Cards, each posing some sort of moral dilemma to be answered with a "Yes," "No," or "Depends." Each player receives five Dilemma Cards and one Reply Card to start. The goal is to get rid of all of your Dilemma Cards by correctly guessing how others will respond to the questions. If all this talk of scruples has you squirming in your seat--don't worry. Your answers don't exactly have to be truthful--bluffing is permitted (even encouraged!). Scruples is great for groups or parties, but definitely only for adults. --Alison Golder

I had a holiday gathering last night and we used my new Scruples game as part of the festivities.. it was fabulous! We did not formally play the game (people were in and out) but we took turns reading the cards. The group really did not know each other well and we learned a lot about everyone there... I also recieved a lot of compliments on the box design and packaging... Several of the participants expressed that they were going to go out and buy the game... Definitely not for kids though... (without a little parental intervention, many of the cards deal with adult sexual and workplace situations) I have used the last version of the game with an group of college freshman with great success!

In this game players respond to ethical (or unethical) situations, and the other players have to decide whether they believe the answer is truthful or not.
I have played this game several times with a variety of people, some whom I know well, others not so well. What I have found is that in most cases players quickly learn that they get ahead in the game more quickly when they find ways to mislead their opponents. This includes conveying answers of partial truth, and even out and out lying. That bothers me. There is no penalty for lying or benefit for telling the truth when someone responds to the ethical situations presented during the game.
This can be a fun game, but I find games like "Therapy" by Pressman Toys to be a better ice breaker and get-to-know-you game than this one.
A passable game, but not destined to be a classic.

The game is an awesome ice-breaker for a new group. And if you are playing with an existing group of friends, watch out, you are going to find out (often to your delight OR horror) what others think of your personality. However, one prerequisite: everybody must know at least one other person in the group.

This game guarantees that you get to know complete strangers in 15 minutes, and are at each others throats in the next half hour. Essentially a "what if" game, where there is no correct answer - essentially it is defense of one's viewpoint against the impression friends & strangers. Great way for singles and couples to get to know each other

I played this game during my university days when I was stuck in my dorm during the summer months. I have never had so much fun with a board game. It was an absolute laugh-a-minute. As many people as you want can play, and each person gets to ask a question, usually a loaded question like, "You know you are attractive. Do you use your sex appeal to get ahead in your career?" The person who the question is directed at answers and then you and the other players debate whether you believe his/her answer. I would recommend that you play this game with people you are comfortable with such as family and friends as there can be many arguments along the way. However it is a fun game for anyone over 18, and if you want to learn about how your friends and family really think, then get this game, it might shock the socks off you, but at least you won't be board of this Board Game...OUCH...what a dreadful pun!

I played this game in Cape Town over Christmas 1998 and have been dying to get hold of a copy ever since. For a group of people who know eachother well or who feel comfortable enough to bear their true (or bluffing) personalities in front of all....have fun. A lot of fun, a lot of laughs and certainly a lot of debating. I can't wait to play it again...be prepared to confront the moral you!

this game is a lot of fun for a group of friends. it leads to conversations, but be aware some answers might start little fights! all part of the game though. the cost is way to expensive in my opinion, i purchased for about 100 dollars, but that seemed to be the going rate. very easy game to learn, and fun for a group of friends or family who know little tidbits on each other. not really great for children.

I purchased the wrong game bc I could not tell the difference between editions of the game. The descriptions were all the same. But it did arrive new and perfectly packaged. But again more of a differentiating description was needed and necessary.
