At Thanksgiving, Tom brought it to my aunt's house and 9 us played after dinner. Three generations were playing, with ages ranged from my mom and her sibs in their mid-to-late 50s, through me, my husband and brother in our early 30s, down to 16-year-old Sammy.
The game play is pretty simple, but we wound up simplifying even more by disregarding any score keeping and simply playing for laughs. We are cutthroat when it comes to Trivial Pursuit, but with games like Awkward Family Photos, the goal is to give the funniest answer, and keeping score or moving around a game board is a drag. Our "rule-relaxed" game play kept up a pace that really maximized the hysterical fun! Additionally, every round includes participation from all players, meaning there is no boring down time while you wait your turn.
As a close-knit family, our submissions relied heavily on inside jokes, shared experiences, and good-natured teasing. We didn't try too hard to keep it G-rated either. ;) Memorably, we discovered that young Sammy has a sharper sense of humor than we've given him credit for. We had fun ganging up on one person after another, even those not present. Throughout the game we were laughing so loudly that the fuddy-duddies in the other room watching football kept asking what all the noise was about.
Since I've only played this game with my family, I really don't know what it would be like to play with casual friends and/or acquaintances. The humor would rely on wider resources, and therefore might not be quite as hysterical as with my family 's experience.
If you play with a group of friends so close-knit they are virtually a family, such as in college or with old friends who grew up together, I expect the experience would be similar to mine. However, as an ice-breaker among strangers, I really just don't know.
Ultimately, I wound up buying the game for each nuclear family, so we no longer must rely on poor Tom having to schlep his game to and from gatherings at our various houses. My mom had the idea of creating additional picture cards using *our own photos*. Goodness knows we have plenty. Removing the anonymity will certainly affect the game play, but the memories may make for even greater laughs. She hasn't made these "personalized" photo game cards yet, so we must wait and see.
Until then, we will keep playing Awkward Family Photos:The Game, along with our other long-time family favorites like Trivial Pursuit (multiple varieties & editions), Charades, Outburst, Sniglets, Balderdash, Scattergories, Apples to Apples, Taboo, Cranium, Win, Lose, or Draw, Dixit, Six Word Memoirs, Wits & Wagers, and more! (Cards Against Humanity is a huuuge hit amongst our friends, but amongst friends is where it will stay, and even only certain friends at that!)
Awkward Family Photos is absolutely the most hysterically funny game I've played in a long time. I highly recommend it to those who like creative, subjective games, and specifically to families. We've all got some Awkward Family Photos of our own tucked away somewhere. We may laugh at the ones we see in the game or online, but deep down, we're laughing at ourselves, too. And theres nothing more fun and refreshing as sharing laughter as a family.
For this game, you get a series of pictures and a 20 sided dice. You pick a picture and roll the dice. The dice leads you to one of the many questions to answer about the picture. For example "What would make this picture even more akward". It's a blast and it has a lot of reuse value as you go through the two decks.
Granted you have to be the kind of person that doesn't mind taking a poke at other people who have submitted their pictures. I am just such an awful person :) But if you are interested in the style but not the premise of this game, this company makes other games with such a premise. It's seems silly but it's important because some people don't find it enjoyable to sit there and make fun of people. And buying this would be the wrong choice for them.
My biggest complaint is that my son is so much better than the rest of us. And maybe "Loaded Questions" should have thought about my ignorance when making this :)
As for the star ratings that Amazon has asked me to fill out:
It's a fun game - get into it and be silly!
I wouldn't call it "educational" at all - it's just for fun.
I wouldn't really call it "durable" because the game board, cards, and pieces are some form of paper. But since the game doesn't involve slamming the pieces, bending, or anything otherwise that would cause damage to the pieces, normal game play won't hurt anything.
Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a new and different game to add to the mix. It's all about creativity - there really isn't any strategy involved.
Overall, this game is a good addition to our gaming collection, I would recommend it!
One note: I've seen varying prices for this game, so wait for the price to drop before you buy it.
