Just finished prototyping and play-testing our latest and greatest – The Wicked/Smart Party Card Game – and have just added it to the coolection. This is a grown-up card game that asks tons of trivia and thought-provoking questions that'll give everyone a lesson in humility, history, sports, science, literature and geography. And wit.
But there are also a bunch of "challenge" cards that throw hilarious physical and mental wrenches into the works: Indian Arm Wrestling, A Staring Contest, or how about a round of Truth or Dare? Or double dare?
It's easy to Wise Up! Players take a card, in turn, and ask the Question to the player to their left. If they answer correctly, or successfully complete the Challenge, they keep the card. If not, it's the next player to the left's turn. And so on. For a Group Challenge, the best player, as judged by the card captain, keeps the card. The player with the most cards at the end wins.
Wise Up! is a terrific, smart-aleck adventure GUARANTEED to provoke and delight outlaws and in-laws alike or your money back. Let's party!
Only $24.99 – what are you waiting for?
One Up! takes a nimble mind, as everyone tries to be the first person to make a word from the tiles that are turned over in the center: first an "A", then an "R" and then a "T". Shout it out, and don't be shy: "ART!"
Wait a sec! The game has a cool, cutthroat twist: any player's words can be stolen by anyone else by simply adding a letter. If an "M" is turned over, and since you already have the word "ART", I can call out "MART" and take it from you. It's my word now, so pound sand.
But you can snatch it back if an "S" is flipped over and you yell out "SMART." Damn. No board. No complicated rules. No monkeying around – just wicked/smart, fast and cheap thrills anytime, anywhere – guaranteed.
A steal at any price never mind a measly $19.99...
Most of our memories of board games are centered around the family and friends we played them with – not the games themselves. We think ONEUPMANSHIP is the perfect real-world accessory for any home, not only because it's an edgy, educational, and sometimes frustrating good time, but because interacting with loved ones in a real world social setting (without phones or computers), is an art we are quickly losing or have already lost.
Think about it: when was the last time you actually played Monopoly – with Gram in Palm Beach in 1998? Or even finished it? Chess is fantastic, but only two can play. Same with backgammon. ONEUPMANSHIP is a beautifully-designed grown-up money game, a sometimes soul-crushing adventure that's the perfect antidote to video game crack. It'll cure your cabin fever too.
It's the best gift ever for the all of family and frenemies you want to get even with.
