At the beginning of lockdown we dug through out games collection to find something for the grown ups to play while the kids were in bed. Unfortunately the only option we had which could be played by only 2 players was Scrabble, and while it was a fun way to pass the evening, it’s not something we wanted to be limited to every night.
So when Tactic Games got in touch to see if we wanted to review some games for the grown ups, we were definitely up for taking a closer look.
First up we tried Crazy Laws as it seemed like it would be a lot of fun and we were right. The concept is so simple; you take turns to read a card and the other players need to guess if it is true or false. The first person to answer correctly wins the card, and the first person to win 5 cards wins the game.
You can have up to 6 players, but as there was only 2 of us, we just kept going. We went through half the cards and the winner was the person who had the most amount of right cards. Some of the laws were insane.
Like, did you know you can be fined if you drive with one hand out of the window in Spain? It’s illegal to carry your pet lizard out in public if you live in Canada? In the UK, it’s illegal to handle a salmon in suspicious circumstances! What those circumstances would be though I have no idea!
I’m sorry to say that hubby won, but I will be challenging him to a rematch soon!!
WRONG IS RIGHT
Next we gave Wrong is Right a try. This one was a little more complicated. Same process applies in that each person takes it in turn to take a card and read out the question. There are three anwers and you have to give the only wrong answer. With me so far?
So for example, which Disney cat has an evil nature. A: Shere Khan B: Baghera or C: Scar. The WRONG answer is of course B: Baghera.
The first person to give the correct wrong answer wins the card, and the first person to win 5 cards, wins the game.
Same as before, you can have up to 6 players, but as there was only 2 of us, we just kept going. We went through half the cards and the winner was the person who had the most amount of right cards.
This was little less funny to play but it was a better quiz as you really had to think about the fact that you needed to give the WRONG answer. So many times we answered the question right, but of course that isn’t the name of the game. This one would also get harder and harder with one or two drinks of an evening as you played!!
Overall, it was really nice to have a few games aimed at adults in our stash. These were great as quick and easy games which weren’t difficult to play but are a lot of fun. They will also be great for camping as something to play after the kids go to bed which doesn’t take up a lot of space.
