If you're like me, that little black box is your go-to game for parties, long weekends, and holiday gatherings. It has all the makings of a classic - ease of use, creativity (but not too much to make the wallflowers nervous), freedom, and of course, you can make it into a drinking game. But lately, with each expansion pack, I feel like the cards are getting less and less funny (same goes for how I feel about new episodes of Big Bang Theory...and any comedy sequel ever made.) So I went on a hunt for a new, equally crowd-pleasing game for any occasion. I bring you...
Game of Phones
Oh AND I forgot the best part - the title is a pun and obviously a Game of Thrones parody. Don't worry, for all of you non GOT watchers (I'm not sure who you are and I can't relate to you at all, but you know, I didn't want to abandon you) the similarities with the show stops at the title. No dragons, queens, or winters coming your way.
The beauty of this game is that you and your friends are already going to have your smartphones out during whatever you're doing, so why not use them? Game of Phones turns your phone into the subject of a scavenger hunt between you and your friends. Every person draws a prompt card and then the race is on to see who can get their parents to text, show off the last photo you took, or find the weirdest Google Image result for your name.
