“From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the “Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party” (Mashable.com).

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don’t need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.

A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.

When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.

Every Game Set Comes With:
·         200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
·         2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
·         2 80-page pads for drafting puns
·         1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
·         A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players -Goodreads


In a similar fashion to Apples-to-Apples and Cards Against Humanity, Punderdome results in lots of laughs! I adore puns and always get a kick out of them, but after playing this game I’ve discovered I am pretty awful at making up my own. I played Punderdome with two of my sisters and we ended up with a few really good puns, and a lot of bad ones. Something unique about this game is that the winner gets a prize from a mystery envelope. The prizes are decided by the host, so I got to make them up. The prizes for our game were that I would paint their nails without complaining or else they would get a glass of water, that they poured their self. My sister who won ended up picking the prize of a glass of water, she has yet to redeem it. I’m giving this game 4/ 5 stars because it can be quite challenging! Aside from that it is a lot of PUN!

Are you Pun-ny?

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
