Punderdome (Game Review)

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the game via Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the game-

From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn's beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the "Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party" (

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don't need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.

A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.     

When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.

Every Game Set Comes With:
·         200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
·         2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
·         2 80-page pads for drafting puns
·         1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
·         A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players

My thoughts-

I am huge a board game fanatic! I love to play games and I especially love games that are challenging. I have never came across a game quite like Punderdome. It is a fun game, but it definitely takes some quick and innovative thinking. You basically are given two cards and you have to come up with a pun using those two cards. Think a cleaner version of Cards Against Humanity for nerds. The game is designed for 3 or more players, but I think it would be a great game to play in teams in a big group. If you like a challenging game that makes you think, you need Punderdome in your party game arsenal.
