This is a post from Sam, co-founder of Dafuq Is Dis and all round depraved individual. She said she’d review Gutterhead so I didn’t have to…
Gutterhead, like a love child of Cards Against Humanity and Pictionary, is a new type of adult board game from Gutter Games.
If you’re looking for a new family-friendly board game to introduce at games night then this probably isn’t the game for you, unless you’re all over 18 and really (weirdly) comfortable with each other.
Best played in good company, with plenty of booze flowing, Gutterhead is a brilliant new addition to any adult games collection and currently the top rated adult party game on Amazon UK.
I chose to introduce Gutterheard at our most recent games, darts and Father Ted night.
Which is exactly as brilliant as it sounds.
Luckily we are all far too familiar with games such as Cards Against Humanity so nobody was too horrified by the contents of the cards. Rainbow kiss still made people question why they’d agreed to play though. Trust the card, do not google it.
So what’s in the box?
Gutterheard is a team based game so, on opening the box and removing the game board, you’ll find four miniature poop playing pieces, four dry wipe pens and four wipe-clean boards.
You can play with a minimum of two teams, but the more players you have the more fun you have!
You’ll also see five different stacks of cards, and this is where the fun begins.
If you’ve never played before I suggest you just unwrap and shuffle the cards and let them surprise you as you go, but if you just can’t wait then have a read through and you’ll soon understand why you don’t want to play this game with your gran in the room, or your parents, or your children, or anybody you’ve ever loved, really.
How do you play?
The aim of the game is simple; your team has to be the first one to get their mini poo around the board to the finish as quickly as possible. Making that happen though, is slightly more tricky.
During your little poo’s journey across the board, there are coloured spaces you’ll land on and each one corresponds to one of the card piles. Your job is to draw (or mime, you can mime the pink ones if you like, though I’m still not sure if that’s better or worse) what’s on the card.
The exception being the naughty or nice cards, the nice cards are very very nice while the naughty ones… well, have you ever tried to mime a double blowjob?
You’ll also be glad to know there are optional drinking rules included, although maybe avoid them if you go for the marathon game option.
What did I think?
Well, I loved it. It takes a bit of courage to get going but once you’ve seen someone miming diarrhoea you quickly overcome that barrier and wonder if there could possibly be a worse card to pick? Yes, yes there could be, but I’m not going to spoil it for you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not the best at drawing, that’s all part of the fun. As long as you don’t take yourself too seriously and are willing to laugh at yourself this game is brilliant. I did wonder if the cards might become easy to guess over time but once I realised Gutter Games had already released an expansion pack for Gutterhead that wasn’t a concern anymore.
Oh, and please make sure any children or those that are easily offended are tucked up nicely in bed before you begin to play and start yelling doggy style at the top of your voice. Maybe make sure all the windows are shut too?
Where can you get it, and much is it?
If you fancy having a go for yourself you can buy Gutterhead and it’s expansion from Amazon, Menkind, Firebox, Forbidden Plant or Gutter Games for around £29.99 for the full games and £9.99 for the expansion.
