If you're looking for a family-friendly mash-up of Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples, you might want to check out comedian Jeff Foxworthy's new game Relative Insanity. He brought it to the Rachael Ray Show, and it's safe to say it was a smash hit. Rach could not stop laughing while playing.
The game pairs 400 punchlines with 100 setups involving families, "cause everybody's family's crazy," Jeff said.
Someone puts down a setup, like "On the way home from the family reunion, Granny made the comment," and everyone plays a punchline, like "I always thought your baby was ugly."
Rach was literally unable to stop laughing as she and Jeff played the game. "I just wanna go home and play this game all day," she said.
The idea came to Jeff one Thanksgiving when all the young family members were playing the not-so-appropriate Cards Against Humanity.
"We have 30 relatives—aunts, uncles, cousins, and all—and we game every night," he said. A few Thanksgivings ago, the young adult crowd was playing Cards Against Humanity, and it was not the most family-friendly game Jeff had ever witnessed. "It was really dirty!" Jeff said.
"I said to them, 'You gotta go in the basement. Your grandmother's here.'"
So Jeff started thinking about how to make a card game that was family-friendly but still funny—suggestive but not filthy, he described it.
Relative Insanity fills that gap. And if Rach's reaction is any indication, the game is a winner.
"My face is hot and I'm sweating," she said. "I'm gonna buy 100 of these."
Guess we better get a box while we still can!
