I recently read the description of this game and thought that I HAD to have it! Who doesn't like puns? Well, this Game was quite a letdown... there are some jokes on the front of the cards that seemed a little too easy to guess and the fact that I knew most of the answers didn't seem fair to the other players. playing this game with only three or four people didn't seem to make it any better. I was expecting a lot more and was let down.

From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn's beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the "Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party" (

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don't need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.

A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.     

When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.

Every Game Set Comes With:
·         200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
·         2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
·         2 80-page pads for drafting puns
·         1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
·         A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players

  1. This sounds AMAZING :D I'm sorry that you didn't like it though. Maybe it'll open up room for another company to come up with a better one? Hopefully :)
