Awkward Family Photos - The board game that made me laugh until I cried
Aside from that time I won Scrabble by placing VULVA on a triple word score, I don't generally get excited over board games. But the other night, I laughed until I was wiping tears off on my husband's t-shirt, all because of the Awkward Family Photos Board Game.

that when my competitive (and hilarious) husband won, he put his chips
back down and said, "Screw it. Let's keep going." And we played for
three more hours without keeping score.

easily offended. Or at the very least, get them tipsy first.

one for her sister for Christmas. All day long, I've been snickering.
Let's just say the phrase, "Too dark, not enough chimps" is going to
come up a lot, and I'll probably never eat Ruffles again.~Delilah
