Tabletop Spotlight: The Urban Dictionary Game
Say What?! The Tabletop Spotlight is on The Urban Dictionary Game!
If you’re like me you probably had no idea that there was an Urban Dictionary Game until now. When our pals at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Games brought this one over I knew it was going to be hard to keep a straight face. If you’ve ever played Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity then you’ve got a rough idea of what you’re getting into. Obviously, from the sticker on the front, you can tell his one has some adult content – so you’ve been warned!
If you’ve never been to Urban Dictionary or heard of it – I’m not sure what to tell you. It’s only one of the most popular sites on the internet. But for the uninitiated – it’s basically the dictionary for all the slang words you can think of. This being an official licensed product the creators have access to the full library of all those naughty words on Urban Dictionary. It’s a fun combination.
Much like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, you are technically competing against other players to with the big blue cards. You do this by playing a card you think will be funny/appropriate/inappropriate/catering to the judge/whatever so that the player who is the judge for the round picks your yellow card. Then the next player goes on to become the new judge, players draw a new yellow card and play continues until your sides hurt from laughter. Or you get offended. Or have to go home because it’s now past midnight and you have work the next day. Sure, the game says first to 5 but c’mon! There are LOTS of cards to go through!
What really separates this game from the other two is that in addition to the theme cards there is also a few other ways the players can win the big blue cards. There are “Pictionary” style rounds as well as photographics sprinkled in. It really adds a few new levels to game play. Plus it’s got a BUNCH of weird words direct from the bowels of Urban Dictionary. This is definitely not a “family friendly” game. But, if that’s okay with you and you don’t mind getting a little crude, this game is a hilarious party game. Go check it out!
