Making A Play

I find the majority of novelty, gift-type items boring as hell. Most of them are one-off things that make someone laugh or wince when they open the package, but then they get stuck in a drawer for the next ten years. This deck of cards -- while not inherently sexual -- is at least useful as a real deck of (pretty) cards, even if you're not interested in drinking your way to oblivion.
Pretty. Can play actual games with them. You'll get trashed.
Not really sexual. You'll get trashed.

Purpose / Audience

Despite their not-so-hot packaging, this deck of playing and drinking cards is actually quite pretty, and rather witty. It's like the Dorothy Parker of card games.

That being said, the whole goal of this game is clearly to get smashed. The directions essentially say, "Turn each card over, do what it says and keep going until you've gone through all the cards." Since "do what it says" mostly entails drinking -- a lot -- then, apparently all you have to do to win the game is still be sitting upright by the end of the deck.

Sexy? Not so much. Fun? Probably. Right up until the barfing begins.

Rules / Content

This is the easiest game ever -- according to the instruction on the back of the box, you flip the cards over, you drink, you drink some more, you try not to puke. It couldn't be any simpler.

Each card also features simple instructions. Favorite ones include:

--Heaven: Reach for the Sky! Last person with their hands up drinks!
--Rhyme Time: Pick a word for everyone at the table to rhyme with. Keep rhyming clockwise around the group, first person to get stuck or doesn't rhyme drinks!

(Seeing a pattern here?)

There are also cards that are reminiscent of my college drinking days, including ones in which you make up a rule, become the Thumb Master, Chicks Drink, etc.
    • Can make your own rules
    • Comes with clear instructions
    • Easy to play


These cards are not only quality, they are very fun and pretty to look at. You can see the pictures here. The art makes it a little difficult to read the instructions on the cards sometimes, but in my opinion, it's well worth it.
    • Attractive design
    • Lots of pieces
    • Travel friendly
Follow-up commentary
Some toys are always on hand, and I know just where they are. If someone asked, out of the blue, "Hey, where's that [glass dildo you love so much?" |], I would know the answer. (Although, why anyone would ask me that is beyond me. Then again, I am pretty open with my friends about my fave toys!).

But if someone asked me where this drinking game was, I'd have to think about it. In fact, in order to write this follow-up review, I did have to think about it. No, not in the game cupboard. Not in the toy drawer. Not in the junk drawer either. I finally found it, buried in the side pocket of my carry-on. Which made me remember that I'd taken them on my last trip, during which we'd used the cards first as a type of "I never" then for building card houses.

So, I still feel the same about them. Pretty? Yes. Fun? Could be, depending on the crowd. Sexy? Still not so much.
