Pretending to Grownup is a charming and funny game that is fun to play. The game involves taking tricks and bluffing. It works for 2-4 players, and games last around 20-30 minutes. Likes: - Humor. Deftly takes on modern adult life in ways that we can identify with. Squabbling, taking on too many resources, being tired all the time. Yep. - Resources: Time, Energy, Money. Yeah, I need more of all of those IRL. - Compact. The small box is easy to take along with you on trips. - Illustrations are great. Really love the artwork. - Reasonably-easy learning curve. - A great social game, which seems to encourage side-talk and having fun with friends. - Adult themes but not R-rated, really. Older kids could play along IMO, though they might not get all the humor.
I've been playing this with my three sons, ages 25,16 and 13. We all enjoy playing it. The cards are funny and we love to battle over possession of the unipegasaurus meeple (although we have found that possession is not always a good thing!) The rules are simple and it's an easy game to pick up with just a quick play through. It's not a game that we would grab every weekend but it's solid enough to make it into our rotation. It plays quickly so it's easy to fit a game into our schedule on a busier day and fun enough where we can play multiple times in a row without getting bored.
We definitely had a blast with this game and it has become a favorite amungst our friends. Definitely recommend giving it a try!
My 13 year old niece played this with me and we laughed out loud. You pick who goes first by who recently said they were tired, you have "squabbles" with the player next to you, and "daydreaming" and "responsibilities" to add on. Use your unipegasaurous to +1 your points and daydream! Definitely a card game teenagers can relate to with lots of fun thrown in the mix. It will be one to pull out and play again and again.
This game has become a favorite of my 16 year old daughter. She brings it out every time a friend comes over and has played it multiple times already. The box is pretty small, so she's even taken it with her on occasion. The illustrations on the cards are cute and funny. There are enough different cards that every game is new. The game moves pretty quickly and it can be completed in less than 30 minutes. I have played it once and found it to be okay, but slightly confusing, but my daughter just loves it! And in full disclosure, there are lots of modern games out there that confuse me these days! It's definitely appealing to teens.
Awesome game for everyone, saw it and immediately knew it would be a big hit. Game is easy to learn and fast paced, a game takes about 30 min or less. Fun party game. Artwork on the cards is awesome and original and the writing is hilarious
Bought as a gift for an artist friend. We were happily surprised at the variety of funny illustrations. It includes a second deck with guest artists that are just as amazing and fit incredibly well into the game. I would play with 4 people for the most fun at least.
