The game can be clean and family-friendly or crude and adult themed...it's flexible and the people playing set the overall theme.
I really have to call out Out of The Box Publishing on their new packaging introduced in 2014.
Instead of the standard game box with a lid that lifts off, you get a top flap with side wings and a locking tab. The black tray is meant to slide out but is a struggle to get back in and the cardboard quality is the kind you take a children's toy out of then dispose of.
This is just a really questionable design decision and the publisher should be ashamed of themselves.
This is also a great way to start out a weekend away with another couple or family because you'll wind up referring to your new inside-jokes and cracking each other up for the next couple of days.
Be careful with your ego, though. I'm in the world of sales & marketing and when we visited our friends who are both ER Drs., they absolutely wiped the floor with me... so much for my skill-set!
Out of everything I have played, no other game can break the ice and get everybody laughing quit like this one can. You can take it into a group of people where nobody knows each other and have everyone bonding and laughing, having a great time within 2 minutes. No other game has this power.
It's a very simple game with rules explainable in under a minute, so nobody in the group will be intimidated.
How does this compare to the ever popular Cards Against Humanity? It beats it in every aspect. Games that rely on shock value like CAH, will become stale within 5 plays. This game is never stale because it relies on the creativity of the player rather than an easy joke on a card. There is no such thing as a bad hand in this game, just poor imagination. The game can be as clean as you want it to be or as dirty as you want it to be! You can play this with your grandma as well as play it with a group of your gutter minded internet fed friends.
Everytime I play this game with new people, they always end up buying a copy for themselves. The people this appeals to ranges from people who love 8 hour sessions of Twilight Imperium, to people who never play any board games at all. That's how good this game is.
As you can see, a few of the items created and pitched in this game can be of an adult nature. If you're easily embarrassed, or are playing with younger teenagers, it would be wise to state limitations before beginning the game to keep things at a level you're comfortable with, as things can quickly escalate from a Rated G to a Rated R (or higher) level in quite a hurry in some circumstances. (Maybe just remove the newlywed card from play!)
Much of winning this game is based on the ability of the players to think creatively/outside the box, as well as quickly. Every once in a while a combination is made that is obviously and clearly the winner to everyone at our table which causes loud groaning, laughter, and other players to discard their two cards for the round without even attempting to pitch, since it would be an obvious exercise in futility.
I purchased this game hoping to find something a little off-beat and fun that was unique (not available at waltonworld), and it was not a disappointment. My son and daughter-in-law are now huge fans, and daughter-in-law's sister now wants her own game.
