It’s the party game that stinks! What’s That Smell? is the hilariously fragrant new guessing game that will throw your sense of smell into overdrive.
Guess the scents correctly to outrank your competition or suffer the stinky consequences of the Whiff of Shame!
The game includes 48 Mystery Whiff Cards and four Stank Cards and scent-barrier bags.
The winner—aka “Nose-it-All”—gets to pick a player of their choice to suffer the Whiff of Shame: Three Big Whiffs of one of the four outrageously stinky Stank Cards including: Extra Old Toe Cheese, Diaper Blowout, Hot Chunky Vomit, or Smothered in B.O.!
