I received this product in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are all mine.
Are you ever to old for games?
I don’t think so.
Whether you’re competitive and the whole goal is to win. Or you’re like me and you’re just playing to hang out with everyone and laugh a lot, game nights are a fun thing to do.
Always On the Look Out
We have always enjoyed having game nights at our house. Squishing everyone around a table or just hanging out in the living room, it’s always a great time of laughter and competition for sure.
That’s why I am always on the look-out for new, and sometimes even old, games to add to our collection. Depending on the crowd and the mood, we can go straight from dinner into a mean game of Farkle or even Apples to Apples.
Recently, I had the opportunity to review Punderdome. I wasn’t even sure what it was about, but it’s a game right, so let’s check it out.
What is Punderdome?
Let’s hear it straight from the makers:
From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the “Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party” (Mashable.com).
One part game, one part conversation starter, you don’t need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.
A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.
When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.
Every Game Set Comes With:
· 200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
· 2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
· 2 80-page pads for drafting puns
· 1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
· A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players
What Did I Think?
Well, I’m thinking that this is a great game for people who like Puns. I, though am not one of those people.
I thought that I would be when I first got the game, but after trying to play it a few times with the family, we quickly realized this wasn’t a game for us.
Now I’m not saying that it’s not fun. It may be, but for us, it just wasn’t all the exciting to play.
I’m going to keep it around though. When we have parties, I like having games like this around because you never know… the ‘punny‘ type person my really enjoy it. (See.. I’m really bad at puns)
