Utter Nonsense! The Inappropriate Accent Game, they had me at inappropriate! Game Review – U
Updated: May 26
By now, we all have played Cards Against Humanity and its allure has diminished. So, when we received Utter Nonsense! and told it was a bawdy version of CAH, the party bell was rung and friends were on way to The Garage.
To play, each player draws seven saying cards and then a judge draws from a pile of accents. A player selects one of their cards and then performs it in the given accent. The judge then selects the best combination of accent and card, that person wins the round and then becomes the judge. Win 5 rounds and you win the game.
Just that simple, however it is a serious laugh attack. The accents vary vastly and a few favorites were; Southern Gentleman, Pooping, Valley Girl and Mime (Who knew Ben was so good at Miming?)
Even if you’re not a thespian or good at accents, adding gestures and a character to go with the accent, makes a not so great accent to winning round. Plus, libations can boost the demure player to accomplished character actor! The longer we played, the accents were evolving to performances. All the players were laughing so hard and the tears were flowing. I may have gotten so into the game that my voice was fading by the end.
Unanimously, The Nerdz Garage adored this game and recommend it.
