How to Play:
The gist of the game is that on each of your turns you must do a challenge card. The cards have a challenge such as "You are Santa Clause, tell each player what they are getting for Christmas" or "You are an airplane pilot in a plane that is crash landing, show how you would make the announcement to your passengers."
If you at least try to do your challenge you get to give a "Curse" card to someone. This is what is actually funny about the game. The curses vary and say things such as "You are now fingerless; do not use your fingers anymore." "Speak as though you have an invisible golf ball in your mouth." "You are Scooby Doo speak like him. IE I am Rooby Roo." and "Every time someone touches you, you must act like you are being electrocuted."
If you catch another player not following their curse cards (and this gets complicated once you have four or more) you ding the bell on them and say "curse breaker." They must then flip that curse card. Three cards flipped and they are out. (As a note, we added a house rule that once someone was out they could still play, they could just no longer win. It gets boring when only two people are left playing.)
This game certainly produced some laugh out loud moments for each group I played with and, the image of my sisters with their "fingerless" hands against their head singing a Christmas Carol in a high pitched voice in a wicked witch's accent, havening to echo the last word of each sentence, backwards (one's Curse card said you had to copy the player to your left) was pretty funny.Read more ›
Players gather around the table. The first player draws a card. He reads the card aloud and then does what the card asks him to do. Example: Do a 15-second cheer for one of the people at the table. Once that is done he draws another card (a curse card), reads it silently to himself, then gives it to someone at the table, whomever he wishes to give it to. That person then must read the card out loud and perform whatever is written on the card for the remainder of the game. If he fails to perform the curse and someone catches him he has to turn that curse card over in front of him. Once the curse card is drawn and given away, the next player draws his cards - one for himself and a curse card to give away. Play moves around the table, and around the table, and around again. When a player is caught not performing his curses and has turned over three curse cards in front of him he is out of the game. Players are eliminated this way until there is a winner. Very easy game to just start playing right out of the box.
It was a complete riot... at first. Oh my gosh we were laughing our fool heads off for the first hour.Read more ›
There's no way for people to get ugly or competitive w/this game, and like the review says- the more open, creative & expressive the players, the more fun you'll have. But don't worry if you've got a stiff duck or a shy violet (or two) in your group. This'll open 'em up in a hurry, and get everyone laughing. There's nothing funnier than when the cards really begin to pile up and you're "cursed" with affliction on top of affliction, trying hard to not only get them all right so you don't get "belled," but also to just keep from stopping from laughing too hard. And that's the rule in this game- NOT the exception. :)
Good, good stuff! I'd -highly- recommend this to anyone young or old, and even moreso encourage people to let go, get silly and not worry what other people think when they play this. The sillier, the crazier, the goofier THE BETTER! Great party-saver, party starter, social warm-up, or ice-breaker, too!! :D:D

We gave this game a decent shot and couldn't wait to put it away. :( You'll get a "challenge" card, however, there is no real motivation for completing it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Lynn
