Pick Your Poison is a card game of unfathomable “What would you rather do?” scenarios. Three or more players compete to create the hardest scenario possible by combining two Poison cards (350 included). Everyone anonymously "Picks their poison" – After the reveal, find out who was "right" and who is just as messed up as you thought. From the creators of The Voting Game and Hot Seat. Combine with the Regular Edition for even more fun!
Good for large groups and is a refreshing twist on games with similar mechanics.

This game is very similar to cards against humanity (or even apples to apples for the younger crowd) but I think it may even be better for larger groups. We always like to play CAH because there aren't a lot of games that can handle more than 6 people. If someone brings an extra person or 2 to a game night, the group either has to split up or a few people will feel left out. I've been on a hunt for more games that can handle 10+ people or utilize teams because of this. However, with CAH we have noticed if you have a larger group (more than 10) it can become un-manageable because rounds take a while (especially with booze) and people get bored waiting for their turn to be judge. Sometimes I've noticed that people will start to tune out if their cards aren't getting picked or if the some judges aren't picking the funnier cards (humor is relative).This game ads another layer of interaction after the judge reveals the winning card each round - the entire group must answer the horrible question.This extra layer of humor by answering the question kept our group more engaged when people don't have the same humor or ick factors. Also - People who would normally tune out mid rounds were more involved and would start defending their answers. We did a game of 12 last night with this game and everyone was engaged the entire time.Sometimes a hand will happen that is kind of boring (maybe the judge doesn't pick the card that the majority agrees with) and everyone will vote the same way in response. The addition of the double down factor helped keep people excited about winning the lousy round.I'd say the NSFW edition is just that. It's a lot of body parts, sexual taboos, and bodily fluids but both decks are fun. Obviously there aren't as many cards as CAH yet but I think this game is a refreshing new twist.
Fun competitive game for Game Night.

Great game for game night. I received this game yesterday and I and my group of friends have absolutely loved. The cards are hilarious and the game extremely dynamic and competitive.The game begins with the judge picking one of their cards as option A. The group then submits their cards for the judge to pick option B. Whoever submitted card B gets a point. The players then all vote whether they'd rather A or B. If its unanimous the judge loses 2 points (incentivizes the judge to pick even cards). If its a tie the judge gets 3 points. Otherwise all players in the majority get 1 point and 0 for the minority.The doubledown card makes things extremely interesting since if you feel confident in being part of the majority you can double down your points, but if you are in the minority you loose the card.Overall its an amazing, competitive, and dynamic game that we loved. I've never been a fan of cards against humanity because it feels kind of one dimensional. This game is more complex and just gives players more involvement and opportunities to participate.
Read directions while still sober

Not gonna lie, the directions are hard to understand when you've been drinking all day so do yourself a favor and read the how to play directions BEFORE you get smashed. We all had a blast playing this game and whomever came up with some of these scenarios should be ashamed of themselves!
Adult "Pick Your Poison Game" is too vulgar!

We were excited to play this game and debated between ordering the adult or the family version. We went with the adult version because the description said it would be appropriate for adults and teens. It is not. The questions on the back of the box are: "which would you choose: a penis shaped phone or have Google publish your search history? Or have sex with sheep or participate in a nursing home orgy?" We didn't even open the box after we saw that. Very disappointed!
Fun but beware, there are seriously unfunny cards too

So this game has some really funny moments but whoever wrote the cards should be fired. We had to remove several cards from the game that were not funny, quite harmful, and would have ruined the evening had they been played. Some subjects are too delicate to be made into a drinking game... for instance: the death of someone from an overdose. It’s just not funny, no matter what. So, my recommendation is to preview the cards and remove ones that would upset your guests before the game begins. Otherwise, you might risk deeply upsetting someone. The majority of the cards are awkward, uncomfortable, gross, or some combination of all bad things imaginable. It can be really fun. I would play it again only after sifting through it.
I really like this game because it is very different

I really like this game because it is very different. It forces you to think of things that you normally wouldn't. Some things are offensive but I like that. It is interesting and not boring. Will definitely buy expansion pack if ever becomes available.
Should be more clear on the NSFW... for us older folks. RATED R maybe?

This looks like a really fun game, and bought it for my intelligent, somewhat precocious grandson who plays adult board games with our family all the time. The description sounded like it would be a blast! Unfortunately the acronym “NSWF” (in tiny letters at the bottom of 1 of the many pics) missed my attention. So, in essence - I gave this dirty sex & perverted porn game to a 13 year old boy. The look on his face when he keeled over after reading the back of the box... had every adult in the room jumping up to grab the box away. Maybe you can make the "NSFW" a bit more prominent...??? Or put - RATED R - which is more easily recognized... and still used for movies & video games?
Great fun! But Seems a Tad Tame...

This game is simple to start, and eat to modify rules depending on the situation. Only thing I would have liked to see is more "aggressive" NSFW cards. We haven't played through even 1/4 of the deck, so please take this with a grain of salt, but a majority of the cards we drew were very tame.. albeit some were morally wrong... But they weren't CoH NSFW.All that being said, it is great, funny and worth the $25. Hoping future plays make me eat my words!
