Today’s blog is rated ‘M’ for Mature.
It is full of suggestive themes that parents may find offensive.
The folks from “Go Hunt” contacted me a little while ago, saying they would be interested in having their game reviewed. I didn’t really think much of it, assuming that this was just another “Go Fish” variant. I agreed to review it, but I wasn’t sure that they would get the review they were hoping for. I mean, what good can you really say about “Go Fish”? Especially a hunting variant of “Go Fish”.
When the game arrived I sat it aside. I didn’t even bother opening it right away. I had other fish to fry, and “Go Fish” just wasn’t among my priorities. The next day, one of my partners in crime, Shawna, sat down to place some of the new incoming games into the inventory. She opened this game and started flipping through the cards. She started laughing hysterically and a snort or two escaped as well. ”Oh my Gods! You have to come over here and see this!”. I was utterly confused, this was just “Go Fish”, right?
The first image I was greeted with was this:
Quickly followed by this:
The cards just went on and on in this manner: ”Excited Monkey”, “Red Pecker”, “Fat Wiener”, “Big Cock”, “Little Cock”, “Nice Rack”, etc, etc. We were both in tears by the time we got to the end of the deck. We immediately called Tristan, my other partner in crime, to come over and see this. This deck of cards was soooo wrong, but soooo right. A friend of ours was hosting a Passion Party later that evening, which we had agreed to go to, and it was instantly decided that we had to take this along.
A passion party is much like a tupperware party, but for more… adult… things. After the rep was done showing us all the goodies, which we all had fun playing with, we told people to gather around the table for a quick card game before we broke up. We explained that it had just come in, and they simply had to see it. We dealt out the cards, as straight faced as we could, and just sat back and watched their faces. It was priceless. You could just watch their face sink into the gutter, as smirks and laughing and gasps circled the table.
Ultimately this game is nothing more than “Go Fish”, but with very naughty cards. But there is nothing quite like asking one of your guy friends “Do you have a red pecker?”, or telling one of my gal pals that “I need your big cock”. We even got the representative from Passion Parties to play a couple of hands with us, and she loved it and was asking where she could buy a copy.
Two small bits of criticism though. Firstly, the game doesn’t come in a box. The cards were simply in cellophane when they arrived. So now we are carrying our cards around in a baggy. A box would be much much nicer.
Secondly, the replay ability is limited, at least with the same group. We played approximately 5 hands before we decided we were done for the night. The gag had worn off by then. However, with a brand new group, I can see the fun returning. We also weren’t playing with either of the drinking variants that are included. If alcohol was involved, the gag might have stretched on for a little longer.
I’m just going to leave you with a visual today. That is really the heart and soul of the game. That and, just ponder on asking your best guy pal “Do you have a fat wiener?”
