I have a young daughter that is really into potty humor, so when Chris gave me a copy of Poop: The Game I knew it would be something she would like but had a feeling that her mother would not approve. Well, I was right, my daughter likes the game and my wife does not. As a father it is my job to teach my children the limits of acceptable behavior, but a game like Poop: The Game makes it oh so fun to play dirty. So read on to find out whether this game will make a splash at your table or not.
This is a simple card game the consists of Toilet and Poop cards. A Toilet card with a Clog number on its face is revealed and players take turns dropping butt nuggets by playing numbered Poop cards into the Toilet. But be careful to keep the combined Poop number below the Toilet’s Clog number or else you’ve created a clog beyond repair. What a mess. You then take all the Poop cards and reveal a new Toilet card. Poop cards are number 0 to 4, meaning you could get stuck with some big milk duds that are tough to get rid of. The 0 doodies are great but when played require that you do things like grunt or “Lean into a fart” on this and every subsequent turn, if you forget you’ll have to draw one Poop card from the deck. You may even get lucky enough to flush the toilet if three chocolate sausages of the same color are played in a row. There are also “Poop Remix” rules including a drinking game variation, an advanced play version and something called The Blind Pooper and the Poop Patrol.
Everyone poops, but not everyone does it with as much style as Poop: The Game. Minimalist images like corn filled piles of dookie adorn the cards. Gameplay is also minimal with few choices and little variety which may cause one to get a case of constipation. But the concept is unique and interesting enough that many will overlook the simplicity. The real appeal comes from the excuse this game gives to have fun and be a little gross while playing. Not all groups will be OK with making fart noises all night but for those of us who are, this game will have you laughing out loud. I can’t poo-poo this game, it’s not a stinker, I feel like it’s my duty to tell you it’s too much fun to drop you kids – or adults - off at the table and make a splash with Poop: The Game.
