Fail Dates is a new Kickstarter card game project by Fail Brands where your goal is to be the best (or worst) date-buster.
It’s a game for 4 to 6 players and, before I get in any more details, it’s a 18+ game. Be advised.
The game model is very simple: one of the players draws a character that is the date and introduces it with a random fact and why you should date this character. Everyone else has to choose one card with the best horrible line to make the date fail, epically. Here’s one example of a line: “Bark twice if you want dinner”. Sounds exactly what you should say in your first date, right? It get much worse and dirty than that, but as I receive some visits from children, I’ll keep it to a minimum ;).
After the date reads all cards played aloud and everyone have a good laugh, he then chooses the best worse answer that can definitely end the date. When a player wins 5 rounds, the game comes to an end and we have a winner.
It’s incredibly easy to open the box and just start playing it. Here’s a how to play video:
If you think Fail Dates is incredibly similar to Cards Against Humanity (you can check my review here), you’re not wrong. The mechanics are exactly the same, but they make some promises that may turn this in the best choice to be the best worse human (if that’s even possible :P). Among their promises, the creators say that it has a better replay value as the characters are introduced in different ways.
It’s also promised that there are no cards that are just ok. They’re all a punch in the face and go from very safe to extreme NSFW.
The 210 cards (45 characters and 165 lines) come in a shiny durable black box and are coloured.

Tell me in the comments below what are your thoughts about this game. I’ll sure want to do a full review as soon as I grab a copy of it.
