Thanks to Games Adults Play for sending me these awesome games. As always, all opinions are my own.

My family is super close and we make it a point to get together for every holiday and for birthdays as well. Now that my younger siblings have significant others, our family has doubled in size! There are eight adults in my immediate family now which is a great number for crazy games when we get together. Recently I learned about two new games from Games Adults Play, and I knew my family would get a kick out of them! I’m excited to share them with you and give away a prize pack containing both games too!

May Cause Side Effects Game

The game May Cause Side Effects from Games Adults Play is sure to get any crowd laughing! You’re a patient participating in a clinical trial study for a new drug, and you may experience some side effects along the way. Basically an amped up version of charades, this game will have you acting out silly side effects while trying to get your partner to guess a word or phrase. You keep the cards for each correct guess, and at the end of the game whichever team communicated best wins!

While we haven’t had a chance to play this yet, I’ve just peeked through some of the cards and I imagine it’s going to be hilarious to watch some of these ‘side effects’ come to life! While not a game for the shy people on your list, hilarity is sure to ensue for those brave enough to play. Plus, it comes in an amazing prescription bottle which I think is so creative!

The Misery Index Game

This next game is perfect for any group that has a gruesome or wild sense of humor! The Misery Index is based on the new game show which premiered on TBS in late 2019. The game includes 200 cards, and each one has a unique (and awful) situation. Each situation has been ranked from 1-100 by a panel of experts based on physical pain, emotional trauma, and long-term psychological impact. This ranking is known as “The Misery Index”. At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt three cards, which they place face up on the table in front for them, ranked by numerical order of The Misery Index. This is called a players’ “Misery Lane”.

Then players take turns reading cards (but not revealing the number) to each other and if they can correctly guess where the card lands in their line-up, they get to keep it. There are three levels of play, each increasingly harder, and when one player gets twelve cards in their Misery Index, they win! You can play with as few as two players, so Tyler and I have played a few times already. This game is seriously hilarious, and unless you’re really great at memorizing numbers (which I’m not), each game will be different! I can’t wait to play it with more people.

Both of these games are hilarious and great for groups of adults. They’d make super fun gifts or just great additions to your game closet! Enter to WIN both of these games from Games Adults Play by entering the giveaway below. This is a US giveaway ending 2/17. Good luck!

    My friends and I are all older (60s & 70s) so we would all get a kick out of May Cause Side Effects. Between us we take LOTS of pills.

    Their S**T Happens game looks like an awesome party game. We get together frequently with our friends and this would be a game that would make everyone laugh! Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity.

    I love to play games and the Friend or Faux game looks like a good game to take to my family get togethers. We’ve played Cards Against Humanity before and had so much fun. The Misery Index and May Cause Side Effects games also look like like both would be a lot of fun with my cousins.
