Crappy Birthday Game Review and Giveaway!!



While at CHITag a few weeks ago, I was given a new game for review. I was really excited, because this game is by North Star Games, who created one of our family's (and my personal) favorite games-Wits and Wagers!! (Read my review of Wits and Wagers here).
The North Star Games booth at CHITag!
Crappy Birthday is a very unique game, unlike anything you've ever played before. (I have to admit, crappy is not a term we use very often, but the game is a lot of fun!). The game comes in a "gift box", and the basic idea is to give "gifts" that other players won't like! (Thus the name :). 




Our family played this soon after getting it, and we had a ton of fun! Some of the gifts are only "crappy" depending on the recipient (for example, taking a Navy SEAL dive would be fun for some people; others wouldn't like it at all). Quite a few of the gifts, though, are definitely not something that ANYBODY would like! Here are some pictures of our Crappy Birthday game time, so you can see what I mean.


M doesn't want a Star-Wars themed wedding!

This was one of the winning gifts; nobody wanted it displayed on their table!

E decided that these overalls were a little better than being licked by a giraffe :)


J ponders the gifts he received...
...And decides he does NOT want this statue in his front yard!
As you can see, this game is not a quiet game! Everyone was laughing, debating, and discussing which gifts were the worst! This is great for family game night (last night during our game time, everyone asked to play Crappy Birthday again), or for a party or get-together. (By the way, one of these games from North Star Games would make a great Christmas gift!)


One of my readers will receive their own Crappy Birthday Game!!
