Good Grief!

You're complaining to your friends about the gym teacher at your school...when you realize he's right behind you.

You're texting your friend while walking home from school when you trip and faceplant into a fountain.

You think you see a friend coming up the street, so you wave like crazy and yell her name...then you realize it's not her.


When being a teen just can't get any tougher, those awkward moments remind us that there's always room for extra embarrassment. If only we knew what to do right when humiliation strikes to it shake off, no sweat.

Think of this game, awarded the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval, as your first defense against the awkward experiences you'd do anything to avoid. Cards packed with mortifying moments encourage players to face social faux pas head on. Reaction cards pose a variety of ways the player could react when blush-worthy situations strike. The decider chosen for each round draws a decider card that encourages players to choose the best reaction based on constraints, such as "What a teacher would most likely tell you to do," "What the decider would least likely do," "Most responsible," and "Silliest." The reaction that appeals most to each round's decider wins and the player keeps the Moment card. Collect the most cards to triumph over those oh-no moments and to win the game! Printed in China.

Not as I had hoped

We bought this for my teen son as a birthday gift. We all played it together and it was pretty fun, however, not as gender neutral as I had hoped. There were a lot of scenarios that were clearly only for girls and very unrelatable to my three boys.

Bought this to use at a couples wedding shower to help keep the guests entertained. Questions were not as humorous or engaging as I hoped; they seemed more geared towards family game night vs. a 30-something crowd. I would recommend this version for family night, which is why I answered that I would recommend it to a friend. It simply didn't work out for the purpose I intended.
