Joking Hazard

My girlfriend likes to play party games like Heads Up! and Cards Against Humanity. I guess she likes having fun and socializing with friends and family. So I bought her a game called Joking Hazard and we invited some friends over to play. I had never heard of it before I stumbled upon it in Target but I think that it has the potential to rival Cards Against Humanity as the next great party game. It’s simple to learn. There’s a stack of cards with offensive cartoon panels. Everyone gets dealt seven cards. Each person takes turns being the judge. The judge flips a random card over from the deck, then plays one of his cards create a setup, and then everyone else plays one of their cards as the punchline. The judge chooses their favorite and that person gets a point. You play until someone wins. Offensive cartoons + friends (+ alcohol) = a great time. We played a few other party games that night, but Joking Hazard was my favorite. I might be biased because I bought it, but I know a good thing when I see it and Joking Hazard is a good thing.

Monopoly (game)

Every single household in the world has a set of Monopoly. Every family’s house, every single person’s apartment, every college dorm, every cabin, every teepee, every igloo… virtually every single dwelling imaginable has at least one a set of Monopoly. Everyone has the regular classic version or a themed version. I have 2 sets of Monopoly in my apartment. One regular set and one with a Planet Earth theme. We have never played either one and they are both still unopened. I think they came with the house. And even though we never play it and never plan on it, every couple of months someone will suggest a game night, and Monopoly is always the first suggestion and the first rejection. Nobody has time for a complete game of Monopoly. I think the first game is still being played somewhere. The only way to win the game is to cheat, and the best way to cheat is to be the banker. And nothing destroys relationships faster than a corrupt game of Monopoly.
