For anyone who’s played Cards Against Humanity, you will know how much of a laugh that is when it’s pulled out at your weekend gathering. So if you like that, then you’re going to love Gutterhead.

If Cards Against Humanity met Pictionary, and they had a lovely relationship and decided to have kids, Gutterhead would be what is produced. It combines Cards Against Humanity’s rude humour with everyone’s favourite picture game, and I must say, it’s a lot of fun.

Now I wanted to get this review out before Christmas, but we took the opportunity of the holiday season to really try it out. I’ve played a few games now, both with family and friends, and have some wonderful laughs.

Take note, that this game isn’t really for kids. There are some dark cards inside, and although I don’t want to spoil it for you, it’s language that kids should not really know. Think things like teabagging, or morning glory, Viagra, and more.

The game is really suited to teams of four if you want a really good go at it. The aim of the game is to get to the end of the board by rolling a dice to move forward. Card topics are colour coded so when you land on a picture square, you have to pick the corresponding card colour and get your team to guess what it is you’re drawing. If you’ve ever played Pictionary, you’ll feel right at home with this.

It’s a game suited for adult dinner parties, hen parties, stag dos, pre-drinking sessions before your night out, that kind of thing. It’s not really one for the family at a birthday party unless there are no kids around. Alcohol must really be consumed too if you’re going to get the silly humour this game can bring.

It’s definitely worth every penny they’re asking for it too. It costs £32.99 from Amazon and can provide people with a great night. I would however have liked to have seen more cards included, but they may go down the route of selling addon packs. Who knows yet. But for what it is, it’s great.
