Poo The Card Game
MFG: Wild Fire LLC
#of Players: 2 – 8
Age Range: 8+
Overall Construction: Poo is your basic card game. The quality of the cards is very good. Nice glossy cards that shuffle very well. The best part of it’s construction is the box. It is divided down the center so that the cards do not fall about in the box all willy-nilly. There is a bonus card for the game NUTS. I will warn you that this game was obviously edited by a man, so don’t be offended by the use of he/him on all of the cards.
Gameplay: As is fitting a game that is listed as ages 8 and up this game is fairly simple. First remove the 2 “Golden Banana” cards from the deck. Since these are never included in the actual shuffling portion of the game, I recommend leaving them off to the side and putting them back in the box aimed in the opposite direction from the other cards. If you are trying to play a 2 player game, read the rules sheet as it has modifications for several cards for a 2 person variation. Then Shuffle.
After the cards have been shuffled, deal 5 cards to each player. It is important that when you play a card you draw enough cards to keep your hand at 5 cards or discard enough cards to go back to 5 cards.
During you turn you can fling poo or a special poo at your opponents, you can clean yourself, you can play an event card, or you can discard any number of cards and build back up to 5 cards in hand. If it is not your turn, but if you are having Poo flung at you, you may block with a block card or play a mishap card.
The first player to get 15 Poo covering them get’s the Golden Banana. If you have 5 – 8 players you can use the 2nd Golden Banana. The Golden Banana acts as a cleaner because it puts the first player covered in 15 Poo back to 8 Poo on you. After the Golden Banana or Bananas are used, keep flinging Poo until there is only 1 person that doesn’t have 15 Poo on themselves.
Yes/No Recommend: I would definitely recommend this game if you are the type of person who doesn’t mind a little toilet humor. If you have an issue with toilet humor, please do not buy this game because it is a fun game and doesn’t deserve negative press if it’s not your cup of tea. To give you an idea of the type of toilet humor involved, here are a few examples:
Pellet Poo & The Big One, there are different types of Poos based on various Chimps, Apes, & Gorillas that are famous. Cramp, Just A Fart, and Montezuma’s Revenge. Not in The Face & It’s On The Lights. While playing several rounds we managed to not have a winner thanks to the “Blaze of Glory” card. I also really liked using the card “Share the Love” where you pick an opponent to basically hug/wipe Poo on, while removing the Poo from yourself.
This game gets attention if you are playing it out in public. The artwork is nice and not overly cartoony. Because it’s a card game you can take it anywhere to play and it doesn’t take up too much space. You will also enjoy the ease of play combined with a quick game.
Where To Get It: The first place I would recommend getting a copy of the game from would be your local game & hobby shop as that is where I got my copy. I know this game is also available on various On-Line retailers. For more information about Poo, The Card Game please visit their website at http://poothecardgame.com/
