Product Description

It's the brutal world of higher education--the misery of sweltering in the rarefied air of that medieval ritual; surviving the politically correct minefield to achieve the ultimate in bourgeois living--Tenure.

Face incomprehensible odds in this tongue in cheek, knife in the back card game of Antisocial Darwinism!

Survival of the Witless is a fact-paced card game for 3 to 8 players, with an approximate playing time of 45 mintues. Not for the satirically challenged: Contains numerous "Politically Incorrect" observations and truths which may offend the less broadly-minded and the insincere liberally educated. Not suitable for children under 12 and University Professors over 50.

Gets tedious real fast
January 18, 2002

It was amusing for the first 15 minutes, tolerable for the next 15, and unbelieveably boring for the remainder of the game. There is no replayability because all the cut things come out in the first game, and you are left with a terribly boring 'gain a few resources' type game that consists of being lucky enough to eventually draw the cards you need. There are few if any interesting decisions. The game can go on indefinately as our game did. I can't belive the game was play tested because any group would tire of it quickly. If you like European style games you will hate this one.
