- 500 Question and Answer Cards
Who Wants To Be A Comedian?
The core game plays a lot like Cards Against Humanity. If you’ve ever played that game, you’ll feel right at home. The game gives players the joke setup and they have to complete the punch line. It’s a lot like constructing Legos only with kid-friendly jokes.
There are 500 question and answer cards that are broken into two colors: blue and white. To begin, each player draws 10 white cards. Each player takes turns reading a blue question card, which seems completely innocent at first glance. Then players answer with their funniest answer card from their hand of 10 white cards.
The question reader decides on the funniest answer and awards it to the player with the funniest answer. It’s beneficial to play to the question reader’s sense of humor because she will be handing out points.
The game gives players the joke setup and they have to complete the punch line.
At the start of each round, a new reader is chosen and everybody draws a new white card, ensuring they have 10 cards.
So, for example, a Question Card reads: “All day I dream about _____________.”
Potential Answers cards could be as follows:
A) Walt Disney’s secret vault
B) Diarrhea Cha Cha Cha
C) The kid who wipes boogers under the desk
D) The janitor’s vomit absorbing dust
E) SpongeBob’s square poop
F) Butt burping
G) Fart in the car. Lock the windows. Turn the heat on high. Enjoy.
LOL! This gives you a flavor of what to expect from the game. The game’s subtitle gives you the direction that things will likely take: A fun family party game where being the worst is the best.
If this kind of content makes you giggle with delight, this game is right up your alley. Much of the game play is dependent on the witty and hilarious writing combined with creating absurd combinations that are silly and funny.

For Ages 8 and Up
There’s plenty of fart, poop, and pee jokes here as well as plenty of kid-friendly cards to fill you with pure joy and laughter. This game is best played with kids 8 and up. While parents may be worried about dirty language that kids may repeat later, most of the cards are harmless. There’s nothing really explicit unless you don’t like potty language.
There are just a handful of cards that are slightly sexual but they often have a double meaning — one for kids and another for adults. Examples include Santa’s big fat sack, One Twig and Two Berries, and Lake Titicaca. This makes the game fun for adults and most kids will never catch the adult humor. Of course, if you’re easily offended, you can always remove these cards for a cleaner version of the game. But honestly you’re missing out on the real fun of the game.
While parents may be worried about dirty language that kids may repeat later, most of the cards are harmless.
It’s not every day that we get to be a stand-up comedian and deliver the punch line, tell the jokes, and make people laugh. But this game does exactly that! Game nights will literally never be the same – they’ll be full of laughter and loads of fun! The sheer joy and satisfaction of this game purely rests on your ability to have a good (and even gross) sense of humor.
How To Win
The first player to reach a predetermined amount of funniest hands wins the game. Then the player with the least funniest hands gives the winning player an Atomic Wedgie. No kidding … this is directly from the rules! And we have the wedgie to prove it.
With near-endless (40K+) hilarious Q&A combinations, family game night will certainly never be the same again! Kids will actually be asking to play again! Expansion Packs expand the fun with a fresh batch of cards. With three available expansion sets (sold separately), each set includes 100 new Q&A cards full of hilarious new jokes to spice up the fun and excitement.
Card quality is actually quite good, so these cards should last through normal play. In fact, they feel as durable as a normal deck of playing cards. Unlike “Not Parents Approved,” we like that the cards are standard-sized.
The overall experience could have been further amplified with fun illustrations that give the game even more character.
The fronts and backs of the cards feature the game’s logo, but there’s seems to be a missed opportunity with fun, wacky kid-friendly illustrations. It embraces a very minimalistic design. It works well but the overall experience could have been further amplified with fun illustrations that give the game even more character.
Spark up family game night with this hilariously fun game that is full of laughter and endless entertainment. Game nights will never be the same! Unlike some boring classics, this is one kids and adults will actually want to break out again and again for family game night. Surprisingly, even adults will enjoy playing it as much as the kids. Parents will also love that it gets kids away from their screens.
It’s a great way to bond as a family and share some great memories and laughter together. We especially love how you’re encouraged to be creative and funny and it’s actually thought-provoking. Delivering boat loads of fun and laughter, Kids Against Maturity deserves a spot in your game collection. If you’re looking for a good time and hilariously silly family fun, we can’t recommend this game enough.
