I thought since tomorrow is April Fools Day, I’d post about some board games that really make people feel foolish. These descriptions will not be horribly in-depth, as there are so many and they have been featured here before. I hope you enjoy!
-Fluxx by Looney Labs–
2-5 Players, 5-30mins
Fluxx is a fantastic game in which the rules are always changing. All games start with standard rules like draw one, play one. The objective is to finish goals based on what goal is on the table at that time. Keepers are cards that you collect to win the game. I love this game, because as soon as you have the proper Keepers to finish the current goal… the goal gets changed, leaving you feeling quite foolish. There are many different versions of Fluxx available. When we first tried, we purchased Family Fluxx, and have now added Cthulhu Fluxx and Regular Show Fluxx to our collection. I highly suggest picking your favorite subject in the collection. Having a Fluxx version that fits your personality makes it just that much better. Miniature Market has a great deal on them! 🙂 Enjoy!
-We Didn’t Playtest This by Asmadi Games–
2-15 Players, 1-5mins
We Didn’t Playtest This is a nice goofy series of games that are completely based on nonsense. I really do not know any other way to explain it…. it’s nonsense. Some cards say things like “If you’re the last girl in the game, you win.” It’s that simple. I freaking love it. It’s a great way to pass the time and as nonsensical as it is, when you’re in the middle of the game it makes perfect sense. The Asmadi Games site has four of the games and a great deal if you buy all four at once, but if you’re looking for a cheaper route you can check out Miniature Market, although the only have three of the games. Just be warned the Banana is not included. Don’t get that joke? Well, go buy the game and get back with me! 🙂
-Poo The Card Game by Wildfire-
2-8 Players, 5-15 Mins
Poo is a great little game that consists of Monkeys throwing poo at each other. There a varying levels of poo and cards that can clean poo off of you. When a player accumulates 15 poo, they’re out the game. The object of the game is to be the last smelly monkey standing. This game is incredibly fun and has the funniest names for the cards… Give it a shot, I promise you won’t be flushing your money. 🙂 Get it? Ha… I’m great. 🙂 Amazon has it for a lovely little price and free shipping.
-Nuts by Wildfire-
2-6 Players, 5-15 Mins
Nuts is a great little game that is also by Wildfire Games. In this game you are Squirrels stealing each others nuts. It’s fairly similar to Poo. This is also a fun way to pass the time. Every turn you draw a nuts card and then you get the opportunity to steal nuts from one or more players. There are cards that allow you to block these attempts as well. Check it out and go…. Crazy, thought I was going to say Nuts didn’t you? I was… 🙂 Amazon has a good deal on Nuts, unless you’d like to wait for Miniature Market to restock.
Enjoy you April Fools Day shenanigans! Until next time… Live by the Board.
