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.

What a great fun game, a few drinks and a warped sense of humour are definitely needed but still crying from the laughter! 🍻😂🍻

We played this game with our grandchildren ( after removing some of the more unsuitable cards obviously), we had such a laugh and a couple of nearly sensible discussions. Well worth the money, it kept us entertained for a couple of hours

Great game! I would suggest playing when merry with alcohol so all those inhibitions are lost and the dark recesses of your mind are reached!

We are saving the game for Christmas day but have had a read through some cards and they are hilarious! We will also be playing it on boxing Day with friends online…. it’s perfect for it!
It arrived quickly, and the little extra bit of artwork on the spooky pack is ace, my partner chucked it across the room when he saw it!! 😂

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.
