Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers

Overview

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

I've I'd never been given a game to review before. One of the groups I review for offered it up, so I thought: Why not? Oh, it's also based off of a real game show. The object of the game is to win the Mystery Envelope prize by being the one to obtain ten cards. You have to answer with puns. Sounds like fun, as long as you know many, many, many puns! I don't know that many off the top of my head- they usually come to me on accident! Which is why it's good the game offered cues- almost like jokes, to bring them to mind. It was rather fun. The Game Provides: 100 White Cards 100 Green Cards 1 Just for Pun! Card 2 Mystery Envelopes 1 Large pad of Mystery Envelope prizes 2 Small pads You Must Provide: A Timer Pencil/Pen The Mystery Envelope Prizes! It's a fun game and we had a bit of a blast. Sadly, my 11-year old doesn't know many puns (though he did get many correct) but when he's a bit older, it'll be an excellent family game to add to our Game Night! I didn't know how to rank it, but I guess 4 out of 5 would be fair. Ratings: 4 of 5 specs *Beyond: A Ghost Story is next. **Game provided by Blogging for Books, for an honest review.

This game really gets the creative juices flowing! I would not consider myself a 'punny' person so I found this game difficult at times. All-in-all I would say this card game is challenging and a good excuse to get the family or friends together. I would recommend this game.
