Kids Against Maturity Review

4+ Players | Age 10+ | 30-60 Minutes Playing Time

Kids Against Maturity

December is that time of year where we want to enjoy the company of our friends and family, even sit down for a meal together and maybe play a board game or two afterwards. December really is party time (although these days you do have to follow any COVID rules that are in place, even if you do have a number 10 on your front door). But lots of the more fun party games are aimed at teenagers and adults because of their content and can be lots of fun, we have a few ourselves and enjoy playing them. But this tends to leave them as games to be played when the younger children go to bed, or they are left out when everyone easy is playing. Card games are the same, younger children play simpler games like snap or pairs whilst older teenagers and adults want games like poker. So if you are looking for a party card games that is suitable for children and adults then you may have just found it in Kids Against Maturity (although that depends on your sense of humour).

Kids Against Maturity is a party card game for 4 or more players that involves plenty of toilet humour, something that should appeal to kids and fun-loving adults alike. If you have heard of Cards Against Humanity this is the less risqué version (supposedly), suitable for families and children aged 10+.

A Fun Family Party Game Where Being The Worst is The Best!

This game comes in a simplistic blue box with stick drawings of a happy and laughing family on the front. It contains 600 question and answer cards (200 blue question cards and 400 answer cards). This isn’t a game where knowledge is king, this is a game purely designed to have fun – and childish fun at that, all centred around toilet humour and innuendo.

Game play is simple. Each player takes 10 white answer cards. Before play starts, decide between yourselves how many points/cards are needed to win the game (recommended is 5 and this should take probably 30-60 minutes to play with 4 players). Rather than the youngest player starting first (always an arguing point between the kids in our house), the person with the hairiest knuckles begins and starts off by being the reader. They take a blue question card from the deck and read it aloud. The rest of the players lay down their funniest white answer card in response to the question – for example: Q: Teenage Mutant Ninja _______________, A: Olaf’s snowballs or Grandpa’s Gassers or even Jar of Egg Farts. The reader then picks the funniest answer and the person that played that card wins that round and that card. Play then continues around the table. Every time an answer card is played you must replace it with a new card from the deck so that you always have 10 white cards in your hand. The winner of the overall game is the first person to reach the pre-determined number of funniest hands cards at the end of the game. And what is the prize for winning the game? The winner receives an Atomic Wedgie from the player with the least funniest hands cards.

Overall, this can be quite an hilarious game depending on who you are playing with and their level of understanding around toilet humour jokes and innuendos.

At times it is a very funny game for a very inappropriate fun game night that has its moments and some hilarious answers. With it being based around American culture and phrases some of the answers just didn’t hit home (having to look up someone’s name to make the joke work just takes away any humour in the joke). Some of the answers are inappropriate depending on the age, maturity and level of understanding or naivety of the children playing – how do you explain what a “turd burglar” is to a 10 year old? Whilst it might be funny for some, others will find it offensive and to be honest it isn’t something a 10 year old needs to know about yet. Yes, you can go through the cards before playing to remove anything you might deem inappropriate but that times time to go through 600 cards and will spoil the enjoyment. A majority of the cards will be innocent and inoffensive toilet humour that players will wet themselves with laughter (hopefully not literally) especially when the answer is in perfect context with the question.

To be honest, the game can be hilarious at times when everyone understands the joke, but I would say this game would be more suited to age 13+ rather than 10+, this is one of those games that will be a “Marmite” game – you will either love it or hate it and you will need a sense of humour and a childish one at that.

An hilarious party game for the right players and with 600 cards giving around 40,000 question and answer combinations it should have plenty of game play and expansion packs are available to expand it further.
