Disturbed, very disturbed.

This game is not for the lighthearted and should under all circumstances be kept away from children. We're all familiar with Cards Against Humanity and other similar games such as the Bucket of Doom and F**ktionary, but this one really takes the biscuit. Disturbed Friends is full of lewd drawings and scenarios that would make even the most creative of minds cringe. I won't give an example of some of the statements on the cards, because they are too strong to repeat, but I can outline the basic principle of the game. 

Each player gets given three voting cards; A, B and C. On your turn you pick a question card and read it aloud, your friends then vote which answer they think you will choose, place their card face down and wait for you to place your answer. Whoever guessed correctly gets given a '#winning' card. The first player to get ten #winning cards wins. It's essentially a game of seeing who knows your twisted mind best. 

The artwork on these card sets are simply hilarious, each of the #winning cards providing an outlandish graphic that is sure to produce laughter in its own right. It means you get to know who knows you best, and lets you know how disturbed they really think you are. 

If you're interested in getting your hands on Disturbed Friends then you'll have to head on over to Kickstarter and pledge. For the game of over 250 question cards, including delivery from Canada to the UK, it costs just about £24, which is a reasonable ask in the market of crude card games, especially for the quality of graphic design that you're getting with it. Sadly like with all things on Kickstarter you have to wait, but this only ensures that you'll be one of the first to get your hands on the game.
