Joking Hazard is an EXTREMELY not-for-kids party game from the minds of Cyanide & Happiness, the hit webcomic.
Three or more players compete to build funny and terrible comics about friendship, violence, sex, and everything in between.
360 panel cards (including 10 add-your-own-words cards) combine to form millions of awful situations, and sometimes nice ones.
High quality cards can be burned for heat after society collapses.
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.
