One of the great things about a card game is that it can bring people together. A simple stack of cards can help you press pause on your worries and transport you to a different place. Quality time with others and a good dose of laughter can help you unwind and relax. Today we dive into the philosophy behind the game, who can play, and where you can purchase your own copy.
An Inclusive Card Game
The driving philosophy behind Are You A Pottymouth is that although it does contain cursing, it does not contain sexual, derogatory, or prejudicial language. Our card game creator, Soraya, felt that as a card game creator, woman, and person on this planet – the game should be inclusive, not offensive. Ultimately her goal is to create a game that was fun for as many people as possible. It was decided very early that this game’s jokes and laughter would not be at someone else’s expense. Our goal is and always has been to bring people together, break down barriers, and bring a little joy to your day.
A Card Game To Get To Know Someone Better
You would be surprised how many reviews talk about how the game helped them get to know friends or family members. Many people don’t expect a card game about swearing to be an excellent way to get to know someone. However, it is because the content feels a little taboo or silly at times that makes it fun.
We find that whenever we bring out the game, people lighten up, and relax. The playful drawing on the cover cracks people up and starts the conversation before you even start playing. For half an hour to an hour, you get the opportunity to press pause on the worries and troubles of your day. You get some time to disconnect from the screens, alerts, and notifications for just a moment.
All you need to do is, shuffle the deck, deal the cards, and get ready to laugh!
Even our reviewers tell us how the game made them laugh and enjoy the company of others. One 5-star review stated that “I never thought I’d hear my grandma say fart so much!” We love hearing testimonials from our players; you can just imagine the fun they had as a family that night!
A Multi-Generational Card Game
Some people think that swearing is too offensive and that players over a certain age would not enjoy the game. However, this simply isn’t true. First, in our opinion, talking about swearing is not offensive in any way – It is more matter of fact. While some people may find some of the language offensive, much of it is actually quite historical. What we consider to be a bad or swear word today, was just common language hundreds of years ago.
Secondly, our game is multi-generational because it draws from different parts of modern culture and swear words’ historical uses. Are You A Pottymouth taps on everybody’s knowledge in different and unique ways. It doesn’t matter if you are in your 60’s or just 17 years old – there will be a card for you. We made it a point to look at modern references as well as those from the hundreds and hundreds of years ago. The categories are diverse enough that if you’re bad at history you may have a chance in the TV, music, or geography category.
Who Shouldn’t Play Are You A Pottymouth?
It’s important to note that this game is not recommended for individuals under the age of 16. We understand and cannot argue that some people find cursing to be offensive no matter what. For that reason, we do suggest that this game is played by those over 16 years of age and older.
