OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Get the whole family together, or at least the ones you're quarantined with, to play the new Relative Insanity game See What I Mean?! Inspired by the comedy of Jeff Foxworthy, this new game challenges players to come up with funny captions for outrageous photos. 

You've got 100 red picture cards (the big ones) and 300 yellow caption cards (the small ones). To start the game, each player gets seven caption cards. Then you'll determine how many rounds you'll play, depending on the size of your group. Let's say the game is over after each player has had a turn as judge.

What does the judge do? The judge takes a photo card and flips it over so everyone can see it. Then the judge rolls the die to determine what type of caption the other players have to make for the photo. The three options are Punchline, What happened next?, and What would Granny say?, and it just so happens that each caption card has one of each option on it. So if you're supposed to come up with a Punchline, look at all the punchlines on your cards and pick the one that best fits the photo. Once all players have chosen their cards and given the cards facedown to the judge, the judge shuffles the cards and reads aloud each punchline. From there, the judge decides who had the funniest caption. That player receives the trophy doodad and two points. The second funniest player earns the coin doodad and one point. And if one of the captions was just a really bad choice or really out of place, the judge gives that player the black sheep doodad and zero points. 

Players replenish their caption cards by taking another one from the pile, and now it's another player's turn to be judge, and a new round begins with a new photo card, roll of the die, and the doodads being awarded to new players. After you've played your predetermined set of rounds, the player with the most points wins. 

Is It Fun?

Don't worry if you don't think you're funny enough to play this game. Jeff Foxworthy already wrote the captions for you. All you gotta do is pick one! This game plays like similar "judging" games: Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, etc. So if your family likes playing those games, they'll like this one. 

Who It’s For

The game is for four to 12 players ages 14 and up. Nothing in the game is explicit, but depending on who you play with, some caption/card match-ups could be construed in inappropriate ways. 

What To Be Aware Of

The game includes 100 photos, 300 caption cards, three scording doodads (trophy, coin, sheep), and a die.

You'll need a scrap piece of paper and writing utensil to keep track of scores, or you can use discarded cards as point markers.
