Talk Dirty To Me


fktionaryWhat It Is: Not to humblebrag here, but I sorta kinda feel like I was one of the first people I know, if not the first, to introduce Cards Against Humanity to a bunch of my friends (including you lot). Now I’m doing the same with f**ktionary, billed as the new CAH, and a game I actually played a small part in getting *to* Canada (I lobbied the creator to make it available on Amazon.ca shortly before the holidays). Now that it’s available, let me introduce you to it.

f**tionary is basically – in their own words – Urban Dictionary meets Balderdash. The rules are familiar to those who have played the latter: here’s a word or expression, now come up with the craziest yet most plausible definition. Then vote for which one you think is the ‘real’ definition (which is also provided) to nab points and attempt to win the game. The twist is that those provided words and their associated definitions are oftentimes insanely out there and R-rated (one such example: ‘Zamboner’), or seemingly innocent-sounding expressions (like ‘Chicken Cutlet’ and ‘Hot Pocket’) have downright filthy real definitions. Amusingly, some dirty-sounding expressions also net out some innocent definitions (‘Blue-Footed Booby’ for example).

Having played it a few times over the holidays I can tell you this is not for the faint of heart – but it is a serious laugh over a glass of wine and a group that’s totally game to ‘go there’. Honestly I never thought I’d say this, but it’s probably more extreme than Cards Against Humanity, so if you’re looking for a new party game to shake things up, then look no further my friends!

Who It’s For: Your younger brother, so he can break it out and get goofy with his friends. Your Cards Against Humanity-loving friend, for a change of pace at your next party. Your very liberal officemates, for a fun mid-day break.

What It Costs: $34.99 (Includes free shipping and no duties!)

Where It’s At: Amazon.ca

    We (my husband, myself and 2 other couples) get together once a month to play CAH. We have the original (US version), the 5 expansion packs, 2012 & 2013 Christmas packs, and the 90’s pack. We’ve been getting together to play for almost 4 years now and we love it! Friends are constantly asking to borrow it and we would love to have a new game to play! The raunchier the better! If I don’t win it I am buying it!

  2. Leah E says:

  7. Tracy says:

    My teen is obsessed with CAH, not sure if she would enjoy a spin off or not -but it looks fun. I think that games are always a good thing -gets people face to face, talking, having fun.

    Um, Yes, I would ABSOLUTELY play this myself (I instagram the really good CAH rounds, because, obviously!), but of course, also for my fiance (because then we can share with our friends), and probably my best friend. She’s the sweetest, but when she plays CAH all gloves are off, so I’d love to see her play this! 🙂

Some of the definitions that my friends made up were some of the most disturbing things I’ve ever heard… and my WIFE, wow… never thought I’d hear some of the sh*t that came from here. You have to get this game… you will not regret it 🙂
