What Do You Meme? is a go-to party game amongst meme-loving adults. The game itself was created by the man behind the leading meme-heavy pop-culture commentating Instagram account, F*ckjerry. The game essentially operates in a similar format as many other situation/scenario card games, only this time with memes as prompts.
There are 75 Photo Cards that include common political figures as well as babies and children given some intense side-eye and adorable animals doing stuff. There are a total of 360 Caption Cards in this original pack.
Gather a group of at least two friends (at least 3 players total), but the more the better. Then, deal out seven Caption Cards for each player. Players take turns judging each round with play moving clockwise.
The judge for the round draws a Photo Card, and it's up to the other players to submit one of their Caption Cards to complete the meme. Note: The Photo Cards feature images that have been circulating the web as real-life memes for years, but try to tune out any previous associations with the images when judging. Once all players have submitted their Caption Card, it's up to the judge to deem the winning meme aka the funniest meme... in their opinion, anyway. The player with the winning Caption earns the Photo Card as a point for the round. Play moves on.
How the Game Ends:
As the instructions say keep playing until you get hungry, then stop and order a pizza. But all kidding aside, this is one of those games in which the end is whenever you want it to be. Games can be short or insanely long. The player at the end with the most Photo cards, i.e. points, wins.
This is an easy go-to game to break out at a party, night out, or pretty much anywhere.
The key to this type of game comes down to the people playing and knowing your audience. Some memes and captions might be offensive to some. That said, for others, this is the kind of game that can bring on the tears... from laughing so hard.
What Do You Meme? is for ages 17 and up. This is a party game that will appeal to players that are fans of similar style scenario card games, i.e. ones that don't require too much instruction to understand but yield a lot of laughs. This game can also be a great gift-idea for that friend that's constantly sending you memes, especially memes created by the man-behind-the-game and famous Instagram account F*ckjerry.
