Bring on the Baggage!

Did you think your dysfunctional family was ruining your life? Think again! This board game not only requires family baggage, but the more you've got, the better!

In this game of storytelling, three to six players move around the board drawing cards and sharing anecdotes from their own awkward upbringing. If a story is endearingly untoward or just makes you mutter "glad I wasn't there!", it adds baggage to the player's "baggage cart." If the tale is a hilarious saga that sends everyone rolling on the floor, it can earn up to 3 bags in one go! Hilarious "family fun" cards offer one-off chances for brutally honest players to gain or lose bags with prompts and questions, like "Who broke in to the liquor cabinet? Every player who took an underage drink from their parents' stash gains a bag." Spill your deepest, most embarrassing secrets to get more bags with every turn—the first player to confess their way to 15 bags wins! Made in the USA and China.

        Great icebreaker when melding families. We shared this with two generations and love the different approaches the game provides. Looking forward to the next time we play.

              Comments about DYSFUNCTION BOARD GAME:

              This game sounded like it had potential, but it completely failed our expectations. Perhaps it is best not to play with your family, as they know all of your stories and life. Might be better with a group of friends or acquaintances who don't already know everything about you. It could also be made into a drinking game or an ice breaker for new people. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it and wish I hadn't purchased it.

                  I got this game to give as a gift to my sister in law. My wife and i decided to open it just to check out the board and game design which looked awesome from the pictures on the box. The game design is awesome, and the game play is even more awesome. needness to say it did not end up making it under my sister in laws tree that year.
                  I know my wife really well, and when we played the game i was so psyched ot hear new crazy stories about her life. I will for sure buy this game again as a gift, now that i have my own it will be easier to follow through with the giving part of the gift buying.

                    I bought this game for my son after a friend of mine recommended it to me. I thought it would be the perfect gift for my son and his friends. They like to hang out and play board games, and he is always telling me good stories about their family "fun" (not our family of course). Response from my son "Mom where did you get this game? We are having a great time playing it and my friends want to borrow it, where did you get it" -- sounds like i did good. Sure glad I found this game.

                      Saw this game and thought it looked fun so gave it a try with a good friend and her new husband and some neighbors. Needless to say, hilarity ensued! My friend and I were reminded of things that happened in our childhood and I also got to know her husband a lot better. The neighbors told some stories that had us rolling on the floor with laughter. Mix in a few cocktails of your choice and Dsyfunction makes the party...I would highly recommend this game to anyone that's hosting a laid back dinner or get-together. It's beyond entertaining and fun.
