PORN: THE GAME deck of cards

Some of the cards from PORN: THE GAME

Once we heard about this game, we just had to get our hands on it!

The purchasing process was painless. For those of you potentially conscious about the packages that come in the mail, don’t worry—the word “porn” wasn’t mentioned anywhere on the box they shipped it in.

Once it arrived, I grabbed a couple of coworkers and we played a few rounds in the boardroom with just the three of us. Sadly, we didn’t have any alcohol in the office, so we played a virgin-version of the game.

The concept of the game was surprisingly simple: be the first to discard all the cards in your hand. You only start with four cards… how hard could it be? Although the imagery and language on the cards is pornographic—you’d expect nothing less—the gameplay itself was pretty vanilla, and you weren’t encouraged to do anything too sexual. I don’t want to give away too much of the game, but you may be encouraged to hump the air, rub someone’s shoulders (with dire consequences if you reject), or say “Thank you, daddy” in your sexiest voice.

The majority of the cards you play deal with adding/subtracting/swapping the cards in people’s hands… all with unique twists that go hand-in-hand with the imagery on the cards. Games can be incredibly short, stopping after just a few rounds, or go on long enough that you may have to shuffle the discard pile so you’ll have cards to draw. You never really know how long a game is going to take.

Just like the instructions say: don’t get crabs! If you’re holding onto the crabs card, your ability to play the game is stifled until you’re relieved of the card… but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to suffer any consequences!

We thoroughly enjoyed our few rounds of the game. One of the players almost choked on her drink she laughed so hard! I can’t wait to play more… especially with alcohol. Although the game can be played dry for those who are underage, I strongly recommend drinking, if you’re able.

Recommended, 100%. I can’t wait to see what these guys come up with next… if they ever release any expansion decks, I’ll be first in line to buy them!
