From the Manufacturer
Joking Hazard is an offensive card game where you compete to finish awful comics! It's a game that is equal parts creative storytelling and feeling bad about yourself. The damaged minds behind Cyanide & Happiness created it, so don't let grandma play unless you want her to die of a broken heart.
Each box contains 360 cards, including 10 write-your-own words cards, allowing for millions of possible combinations and jokes. And the rules themselves are flexible and remix-able, with countless alternate ways to play.
The judging player (referred to as the judge) flips the top card off the draw pile.
That player then adds one of their own cards on either side, making the setup.
The players who aren't the judge put in their best punchline, facedown. The judge shuffles and picks the funniest.
Unlike other adult party games where the writers get to have all the real fun, Joking Hazard puts the creative control in the players' hands. Each comic is a tiny little story you're creating from scratch. That story can go in a direction as good or terrible as you are.

SUPER FUN GOOD
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I was sitting alone one night when Shmaggeldorf, the trickster god of card games, descended and showed me a tasty glimpse of the world's greatest party game. And I spent the next 30 years creating it.
What makes your product special?
Joking Hazard will make you feel like you can do anything. After one round, most players report finally knowing who they are. Winning a game has been compared to running a marathon in the nude.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Finally having friends.
Must be at least 17 & older to purchase.

About 20-25 cards contain swear words or obscenities that can be censored with a sharpie while still making sense. For some sensitive players, this is a way to keep these cards in the game.
There are about 50-60 cards that are particularly obscene/objectionable/inappropriate/offensive that cannot be censored and still remain playable. If you're looking for a "cleaner" version of the game, just remove these 50-60 particularly obscene cards and you're good to go
There are still around 250 cards remaining after the filtering/censoring, so the game is still completely playable without the obscenities, and is still absolutely hilarious. One of the best games I've bought in a long time, and will probably become my favorite.
While playing, we made up our own rules where you can play a card before, after, or inbetween the 2 set up comics. This gave so many options for everyone to play a card that would fit the theme of the set up. However, it did make it obvious for who put a card at the beginning if they were the only one, but we trusted the judges enough to pick the funniest option even though they knew who placed the card down.
The only downside is that because its all picture based, the cards all need to be visible and to be read by everyone. So everyone has to sit in a close circle or at a table.
For those people who can't laugh at this and say it's only funny if your a teenage boy- that's fine. I'm in my 30's and I think it's absolutely hilarious. Does that make me immature? Maybe, and that's fine too. For anyone looking into buying this game, do some image searches to see what the cards look like and you'll immediately know if you're the kind of person that would love this game, or if you're the kind of person that won't find it funny at all. I knew what to expect and I wasn't disappointed.
The biggest issue is that it's really hard to make panels that actually make sense, let alone are funny. Many of the cards also try way too hard to be edgy. I get it, that's what C&H are known for, but this seemed over-the-top and yet lazy, even for them.
Top international reviews
The initial game contains enough cards to last for approximately 2 to 3 hours of play for four people. It lasts so long because of the number of cards provided and the amount of time spent cringing and crying (in laughter) in between rounds. It's very easy to play and the combinations of cards are virtually limitless. I've played Cards Against Humanity a number of times but find it has limited replayability because the words become familiar, however the beauty of this game is that it's a visual story unfolding and the ending card can really twist it in expected ways.
The cards were a high quality print, though I noticed a bit of rough printing on the back of some of the cards. It doesn't bother me particularly, but other buyers ought to be aware.
£25.00 (price at time of purchase) might be a little overpriced for such a game, but a decent addition to the collection.
This game is for anyone who needs another angle on their already warped humour.
