Joking Hazard is absolutely hilarious. It's played like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, except instead of building phrases, you're building a three-pane comic strip. We were cracking up almost every single round, and it's astounding how well all of the seemingly unassociated panes fit together in sequence. I often play with some more sensitive players, so I wondered exactly how obscene the game really is. I couldn't find that information anywhere online, so hopefully this will help.
About 20-25 cards contain swear words or obscenities that can be censored with a sharpie while still making sense. For some sensitive players, this is a way to keep these cards in the game.
There are about 50-60 cards that are particularly obscene/objectionable/inappropriate/offensive that cannot be censored and still remain playable. If you're looking for a "cleaner" version of the game, just remove these 50-60 particularly obscene cards and you're good to go
There are still around 250 cards remaining after the filtering/censoring, so the game is still completely playable without the obscenities, and is still absolutely hilarious. One of the best games I've bought in a long time, and will probably become my favorite.
I can't even say enough about how hilarious this game is. Get your friends together and play this game. There are alternate rules, drinking game rules, and regular gameplay. With just enough insulting, dirty, and hilarious combinations to keep you on your toes! You'll love it
If you've been wishing for something fresh to replace Cards Against Humanity, wish no longer and pick up Joking Hazard! This game has a similar premise to CAH, in that the judge plays the set up, the remaining players play the punchline, and the judge chooses their favorite with the winner getting a point. However, playing in an animated comic format adds a lot to the humor and leads to some truly hilarious and surprising results. I would also say that a good 97% of the cards are fantastic, and there are so few instances of "throwaway rounds" where you just can't put something together because a card is too obscure/unfunny. Our group ended up playing the whole box our first time playing, and all commented how much fun we had. We're already hoping for expansion packs!
Also like CAH, this game is for those with a pretty "messed up" sense of humor, and is ABSOLUTELY NOT appropriate for kids, your mom, or your friends that are beyond moral reproach. There is no shortage of middle fingers, death by cancer/AIDS/suicide jokes, sex acts, etc. That said, and note I've already established that I'm one of those "messed up sense of humor" people, I never felt anything was just for shock value and SO offensive as to not be funny. I've removed cards from other card games for just being plain terrible, but all the cards here manage to find that balance in my opinion.
So if this sounds like the type of ridiculousness that you and your friends get up to, place the order already!
