Remember at the beginning of quarantine when everyone entertained themselves by posting those Instagram stories trying to blink at the right time or to guess trivia answers that scrolled above their heads?
One of my favorite ones to watch was the one where people had to guess the gibberish because it was so clear to me what they were trying to say — that is, xuntil I tried to do it myself.
Well, Incohearent from What Do You Meme? is a card game already on the market that was the IRL and OG version of this challenge. And now, it’s available in a super fun, family edition that will have your whole clan LOLing.
The original Incohearent game is a party game designed for players ages 17 and up in which players try to make sense of the gibberish from one out of three possible categories. Players read the gibberish on one side of the card that sounds like the actual phrase written on the pack of the card. While someone is reading the gibberish, other players have to guess the phrase it sounds like. The original game – as you may have guessed from its rating — has mature language so it can get a little raunchy, and isn’t great for your game nights that may include little ones.
But the gameplay is so fun that it easily translates to a younger demographic. With Incohearent Family, the cards and phrases are much more family-friendly, so younger kids can get in on the fun and laugh their butts off. The cards — which feature fun phrases like “smelly feet” and “the guac is extra” — also feature hints so if players get stuck, it’s not a lost cause. This Family version of the game is designed for kids ages 12 and up, so it’s a great game to spend quality, phone-free time with your teens.
So grab this game for your next family game night and gather ‘round for a game that will make your family “Ellow Well” and say, “Oh Wem She!!” (Get it? “LOL!” “OMG!”)
