Laugh it Off

Oops! There's nothing like an accidental "Reply All" or a poorly-timed Freudian slip at the office to make you want to climb into your own recycle bin. But what if you could get all of the hilarity of those awkward moment stories without the accompanying embarrassment or consequences? That is the pleasure of the Awkward Moment at Work game. For each round of the game, a Moment card is played, describing an awkward work situation (ranging up to PG-13 levels of faux pas), and you and your friends compete to play the best Reaction card. As a twist, the judge for each round gets a Decider card with special direction for choosing the winner ("Most awkward", "Most responsible", etc.). It's the kind of game that provokes so many laughs and such good conversation that everyone feels like a winner. Printed in China.
