Older folks playing dirty games is the best.
Adult-focused games are becoming a common sight now since the surging popularity of "Cards Against Humanity." Back in January, a game called "Exploding Kittens" raised $1 million on Kickstarter in just seven hours.
And now there's a new (appropriately) inappropriate game out there in a naughty vein similar to "Cards Against Humanity," but with some fascinating gameplay additions. What if you didn't just get to say dirty things, but you got to draw and act out dirty things as well?
"Draw What?!" was developed by two game-designing brothers, Adam and David O’Rourke, along with law student Desiree Bagby. "Draw What?!" adopts elements from a few different games. It takes a board inspired by "Candy Land," the gameplay of charades and "Pictionary" and, of course, the offensive, NSFW fun of "Cards Against Humanity."
The idea was sparked as many ideas are: hanging out with friends and probably drinking a lot of alcohol. "We were playing 'Pictionary' one evening, and started making up our own cards to draw," co-creator David O'Rourke said to The Huffington Post. "It didn’t take long before we were rolling on the floor, laughing so hard we had tears running down our cheeks."
Now that they had their idea, the next step was to recruit some people to try their game -- and why not a group of random old people pulled off the street?
"What better way to demonstrate how fun the game is," said O'Rourke, "than to show a demographic most would assume to be so far out of their element, not only playing the game, but loving it?"
And these folks really, really get into it.
Just a few concepts you might have to either draw or act out while playing the game include, but are certainly not limited to, "Just the tip," "batshit crazy," and "crossing swords." Those are probably some of the more G-rated concepts. Already we can see the wheels in your head turning about which of your friends would be a little too good at this game.
"Draw What?!" is set to launch later this month, so check out the video to see the game in action, as well as some of our elders drawing things you've probably never seen your grandparents draw.
Warning, it is definitely NSFW, so headphones are in order. But it's funny, so a hearty laugh is also required.
