I bought the original version of Zobmondo! which came with a proper gameboard, but the core mechanic stayed the same in the new version.
This game has been a hit with the parties I've brought it to. Guests' original contributions were even more hideous than the cards in some cases.
You don't have to be a potty-minded boor to enjoy this game. You just need a healthy funny bone.
The point of a party game is to socialize; in that regard, this offering is a mild success. In reading the cards (would you rather eat a live cockroach or dive into a pool of phlegm), much discussion usually ensues. And that's a good thing.
Otherwise, there's nothing to the game. Predicting what others will do is anticlimactic at best, a bore at worst. This game tries to do what Personal Preference does, only with grosser material. Just play Personal Preference by allowing the guests to make up the topics. It'll be more appropriate to the crowd and much more interesting.
This game provides minimal entertainment value. The best aspect of this game is that the questions were devised by comedians, and the 'best' of the questions were used for the making of this game. If you still insist on buying this game (and the only reason it gets 2 stars instead of 1), use it for the cards only for conversations pieces. My friends could laugh all night just reading the cards out loud to each other. As a game, this one is horrible. Save yourself the headache. For a great party game, look at [page scan/se=0551/sf=category/fi=stockall.asc/ml=20]Apples to Apples, Balderdash, or my favorite, 25 words or less.
I agree with Joel G.'s comments, except for the value of the cards as entertainment: I don't think the game is worth the material it's printed on.
This was presumably designed as a party game; the rules are less challenging than Sorry! and there's no strategy. But you'll need a party group with a morbid sense of humor to get any entertainment from this. The questions are so repulsive that the manufacturer eventually published what was labeled as a 'milder' version of the original. This game consists of choices like 'Would you rather get kicked in the back of the head while biting a curb, or gargle with raw sewage water.' (To be fair, only the first half of the question is directly from the game; I can't remember the actual choice.)
We tried it at a game party one night, and were disenchanted after the first 5 minutes of play. Two of the four players were so disgusted they refused to finish the game.
Skip this loser.
