I am not even close to exaggerating when I tell you: Pie Face is one of my favorite games of all time.
Brought across the pond by Hasbro Gaming, this phenomenal game is packed with whipped cream-filled laughs. The object of the game is simple: Don’t get pied!
To get started, you just load up as much whipped cream (not included!!) as you want onto the throwing arm. If it’s your first time, you may feel cautious, but if you’re in a room or area that can handle a mess, it is my professional opinion that you go crazy and build a high pile of whipped cream goodness. (Parents, please note that this game will make a mess. There’s no way around it, but it’s so worth it. For you and your kids. Trust us.) For those of you feeling a little less ambitious—or a little less like cleaning up a whipped cream mess in your kitchen—there is an included sponge that you can soak in water and have flung at your face instead.
Once the throwing arm is loaded, players take turns spinning the spinner, placing their face through the face splash guard mask, and turning the cranks the number of times indicated on the spinner.
Let me take a quick break right here to explain to you the level of anxiety that you feel when you place your chin on the ledge and turn those cranks. It’s absolutely unreal. Each and every time you do it, it’s difficult to make yourself turn the cranks. You think: Am I really going to do this to myself?! I couldn’t even keep my eyes open. It’s that wondrous sort of anxiety though, like the kind you feel when you’re just about to go down the huge hill on a roller coaster—something fun is about to happen!
And boy, is it ever. You either struggle through the hardest 10 to 20 seconds of your life turning the cranks to end up scott free, OR you end up suddenly surprised with a face full of whipped cream.
I cannot stress enough the amount of fun that this game will be for your entire family. The simple gameplay makes it easy for the whole family to get in on the fun, while the hilarity of the whole situation will have you laughing for hours. Plus, parents will love that it’s SUPER easy to clean up after the game—just stick in in the sink and hose it down. Everything wipes clean!
