The Game is better than hoped for

Rated 5 out of 5
April 9, 2021

I saw this game on Facebook, and thought it would be perfect for a remote game night with friends. I was right, it is. Where I was surprised was that the questions are so good. More than once we ended up pretty much throwing out the rules, and just taking cards as conversation starters.
The gameplay suggestions are great, the important thing is to remember the point of the game is to have a great conversation. There really are no losers. I find it best to start with an announcement that anything said during the game, stays in the game, and there is no judgement allowed. Anyone that doesn’t think they can handle that speak now, and we’ll find a different game. I’ve also said that if anyone is uncomfortable about the conversation, or the prompt, it is acceptable to say so, and we will move on immediately. No questions asked.
The physical cards and box are very nice, and feel sturdy enough to hold up nicely for years.

Wonderful game. Got my friends and I discussing a variety of topics. Perfect to play while eating as no board/pieces to get our grubby fingers all over.

We took The Shame of Life to a friend’s house and it was a hit! We had so much fun with the cards and had great conversations due to the questions. We played the whole evening and had a blast. Get this game! It’s perfect

We’ve been using these cards, unconventionally, to jazz up our friendly zoom chats. We haven’t laughed this hard in months. Thought-provoking, hilarious, sometimes wicked. Just what we needed!

We had so much fun playing this. I think our daughter and her fiance wished they didn’t know so much about us now! Lol

The perfect Christmas gift for my brother in law, however it turns out some of the questions are not really suitable for parents… who knew?! Oh wait, you guys did, I did, we all did. So we read them out anyway and embraced the blushing embarrassment.

I’m afraid you’ve unleased a beast here! We’ve had the best time with this game and it’s going to keep us entertained for years!! Absolutely love it! It’s certainly not for the squeamish, faint-hearted, or easily offended and that makes it all the better!

Played over zoom on nye (what could be more 2020?) We were crying with laughter at some of the cards, although I will say some of the ‘debate’ cards were more of a ‘unanimous agreement’ card which cut those discussions pretty short. But the ‘would you rather your sneezes sound like farts or your farts sound like sneezes’ was the highlight of the evening.

I ordered this for my son for his birthday. Shipped to the USA and was received well before his birthday (SO QUICK)! He thinks it’s great.

The Shame of Life is a fabulous family game… as long as your family are over 16 and don’t mind some awkward but hilarious conversation. The game can last as long as you want it to. Some cards can inspire conversation that lasts 30 minutes yet some cards are 1 word answers. I can’t recommend this game enough. It’s amazing!!!

A very well received gift which was played straight away and ensued barrels of laughter and a three hour delay to our Christmas Day walk. Unputdownable. Brilliant!

Thank fuck for Covid. This game is hilarious you really get to know who has the sickest inner dialogue in life. Could have done with twice as many cards though

My 76 year old Mother In Law has always presented as a polite, reserved and somewhat reticent character…. until we played this game as a family at Christmas. Perhaps it was the wine, perhaps it was the four glasses of Baileys or perhaps it was the fact that lockdown has us all prepared to take risks. Whatever it was that woman surprised, nay shocked, us all with her random, disgusting and divinely humorous answers. I will never be able to look at a Baileys bottle without blushing again…

A fantastic game to play drunk! Due to the lockdown we all decided to stay home for Christmas Day. I sent pictures of the cards to my family and then we all got together online. I have been traumatised by some of my brother-in-laws answers and will never be able to look him in the eye again! Thanks for such a fun evening, well worth every penny!

This was bought as a gift, so I only got one go at playing. Just brilliant. Be prepared to be unable to read out the cards because you cannot speak for laughing.

HOW MANY PLAYERS?

If you just want to play casually, it doesn't matter.

For a competitive game, four or more. To get a good mix of opinions and better voting, we recommend playing with four or more players.

HOW MANY CARDS?

100 question cards, 10 blank DIY cards come with the original edition, and 30 questions come with each expansion pack.

HOW LONG IS EACH GAME?

Typically anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours. It really depends on the number of people playing. This game has questions that can lead to wild and weird tangents, so it varies widely. The general rule would be with more players the longer the game.
