Fun for the whole family! Giggle your way through a gaggle of disasters
You're going to read some really messed up stuff on these cards, and then rank them based on how bad they really are. Is a 3rd degree sunburn better or worse than seeing your father naked? Is it worse than dropping your phone in the toilet?
Rank the card, and if our Misery Index agrees with you, you get to keep it. Correctly rank 10 cards and you win.
This is a game that will have you pulling faces at some of the suggestions offered or going "really?" because you feel the card should be higher or lower that what it is. All you need to do in order to win is to gain ten cards, which sounds simple enough but there isn't a huge amount of logic when it comes to where some of these cards get placed on the scale is and responses to the questions are very subjective. You begin the game with three cards which you place in front of you, in order from lowest to highest, the person to your right will read out the card and you then indicate where, on your scale, you think that the card belongs. If correct, you add it to your scale, if incorrect, it is discarded.
As you gain more cards, the game can increase in difficulty, especially when the difference between cards can be very minimal ie. One card could have a level of 43, the next 44 and the card being read to you could be a 43.2 on the scale. As said previously, it's also very subjective, I think hitting my thumb with a hammer is worse than stepping on Lego but there will be someone out there who thinks the other way. This isn't a game that gets pulled out very often, I find it would be a good time filler but there's no depth or real strategy to the game and when compared to most of my other games, it just doesn't hit the mark.
