From the Manufacturer

Throw a Mardi Party! It doesn’t have to be Mardi Gras to play Party Gras. Party Gras is a perfect way to spice up any social occasion. It’s a great add-on activity for any dinner party, birthday celebration, back yard barbecue, or big game get-together. And unlike other games, you won’t be stuck sitting around a table. Stand up….move around…and try to cleverly complete the lively mission on your cards. For example, MIND CONTROL: Make someone refuse to throw away your trash or CAUGHT IN THE ACT: Catch someone text messaging or TALK IT OUT: Find someone who likes werewolves better than vampires. Use your charm and wit to get those sparkly beads away from others, all while they’re trying to get your beads away from you. Collect the most beads to win. Party Gras…the game that’s the life of the party!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fun: Depends on group, dynamic, and willingness to lose inhibitions.
Game Value: Pretty pricey for actual contents.
Replayability: Only with different groups, same people would not do more than once.

Party Gras is one of those adult party games that can go either way depending on the circumstances in which it is played. It's not the sort of game that one sits down to enjoy exactly. It is more about integrating game action into an actual get-together. I don't really see it as a family game. I think it would be far more successful as either a casual ice breaker in a formal group setting (such as a work seminar) or as a drinking game in a party setting. I've been known to do my share of wacky antics to gather worthless beads while in an inebriated state, and this game utilizes my shamelessness and lack of dignity to great affect. However, for the game to be at all successful, you must have people who are willing to experience it to a full degree of participation and not be overly reserved.

The game is simple enough. While four is a minimum number of players, the game works much better with larger groups. There are mission cards that you may try to fulfill as you work the party scene. If you are successful, you gather the aforementioned beads (don't worry, there are no inappropriate flashing of body parts).

Cards examples:

Caught in the Act: Find someone texting.
Mind Control: Have someone refuse to take out your trash.
Talk it Out: Find someone who thinks werewolves are cooler than vampires.
Challenge: Simple physical competition like staring contest.
Go Crazy: Wacky stunt like acting like a dog.

Party Gras is, at least in concept, an excellent way to get a party going if you find yourself in a large gathering of people who aren't all that familiar with each other and need an excuse to break out of their individual cliques and mingle. With that said, though, when I'm invited to a party, it's usually with a group of ten to twenty people who are already familiar in at least one way or another.

The idea behind the game is to have everyone compete for beads (it's so much easier to "win" beads in New Orleans, at least for the ladies) that each person wears around their neck. In order to win the beads, you have to convince someone to perform a task posted on the 300 cards provided with the game. The cards are broken into five categories: Mind Control, Caught In The Act, Talk It Out, Fashion Police, Go Crazy & Challenge. Once they perform the task or fit the description on the card, you collect the number of beads that the card says to take.

When the game is over, the person with the most beads wins.

I personally believe that this game works best at office parties and/or conventions as an icebreaker for people who either rarely talk to each other or are meeting for the first time. Also, I highly recommend adding alcohol to the game for the simple fact that it will loosen up people a bit in order to get things going.

If you have a bunch of friends over at your house whom you are already familiar with, you can take the game a step farther and add your own tasks to help keep the game interesting.

Overall, a decent game to play with a very large group. If you're dealing with less than twenty people, though, add alcohol!

Party Gras is an interesting game and I certainly don't own any games like it. Unlike most games that require a minimum of 2-3 players for optimal play with Party Gras the opposite is true. The more people you have playing the more fun it is, and because it can accommodate such a large number of players nobody ever has to feel left out or like they have to team up with another player just to make sure everybody can play. (Which is one of my biggest complaints at game night is having to play something like Settlers of Catan on a team.)

Party Gras has a simple enough premise: Get all the beads you can (just like Mardi Gras)! But how you get those beads is what makes this game such a riot. Along with the strands of beads that every player starts out with each player is given a card with a task that they either must do or convince another player to do. Once their card has been completed they show it to another player and receive a strand of their beads in exchange.

This game is great for large family gatherings if you're a loud, boisterous, outgoing family; ice breakers for small conferences and group settings; and at any type of party. Also, the game is super flexible because you can play until somebody has ALL the beads (which I honestly think might be impossible if your friends and family are as competitive as mine are) or you can have a predetermined time limit for the game and whoever has the most beads at the end of that time period is the winner.

Overall it's a fun game and great if you've got a large group to play with.

It took forever for me to write this review simply because you have to have a minimum of four people in order to play it. I intially tried to make it work with just two people that is simply not possible with this game. Fortunately the holidays rolled around and we had enough people stop by the house to make the attempt. I must emphasis the word attempt because after 5 minutes of explaining the "rules" no one was really engaged in the "play" aspect. I think this game is much more well-suited for people who do not know each other well in an "icebreaker"/conference setting. There was much rolling-of-the-eyes and are you kidding me? responses from those who were gamely trying to make this work. It was quite frankly, not that much fun. As I mentioned previously, this would be a great game to use as an icebreaker for facillitators. I belive that would make this game much more of a "party".
