Just a decade ago, things like Facebook and Twitter were starting to become popular, and cellphones still needed to be flipped or slid open. Many people everywhere were charged per text, and data was almost non-existent. Now, no matter where you go, people are glued to their phones. With unlimited access to infinite information, social media, and entertainment, society holds the world in the palm of their hands.
And what are we using it for?
Everyday, people of all ages are scrolling through the internet to find the dankest, silliest, most outlandish memes you can think of, and sharing it with friends and loved ones alike. These humorous photos paired with dark, relatable, hilarious sentences have everyone on their sides laughing. Which is why What Do You Meme? has everybody running to the stores. This game, similar to Cards Against Humanity, will liven up any group or party setting and become an instant favorite.
This game is very easy to play. With a photo card in the middle, players pick a sentence card from their hand that best fits the photo in play. Then, the person who puts down the best or funniest sentence card wins! This game is all about knowing the personalities and humor of the people participating in the game. With cards like “when everyone at lunch is talking about what they got for Christmas but you’re Jewish,” to other far more inappropriate options, this game can get pretty strategic. It’s all about knowing who will appreciate a card more, and pairing the right sentence with a relevant photo. As in thinking through whether the sentence actually matches the message of the photo in play. Make the right choice, and you’ll be winning rounds left and right!
Each player starts out the round with seven caption cards in their hand. The first person to take a turn selects a photo card from a shuffled deck and places it on the What Do You Meme easel. It is typically placed in front or to the side of the person who drew the photo so everyone can see it easily. After examining the photo, the other players then select a card from their own hand that they feel best matches the content in the picture.
Everyone puts their options face down in the center of the table, and immediately draws from the deck for a replacement card. Once everyone has put down their cards, the person who selected the photo reads everyone’s cards allowed. That person then chooses their favorite card, and the round winner is identified. This person keeps the photo to track how many times they have been identified as a winner. The round ends, and the person to the left begins a new round. The first player to accumulate seven photo cards is, technically, the winner.
Though, this game doesn’t really have to have an end. In a party setting, the rules on the box say “play until you’re hungry, then stop to order pizza.” Keep going until it doesn’t make sense to go any longer, and have a blast doing it. The person with the most photo cards at the end takes home the champions crown.

Who Will Not Like This Game?
If you are looking for a serious game
This game is great for party gathering and casual games. It is unlikely to appeal to more experienced gamers who are looking for something challenging or involved.
If you have young children
This game is advertised as an adult card game, and for good reason. While some of the cards are pretty PG, they can get wildly inappropriate real quick. To protect innocent ears from hearing the atrocities of everyday adult humor, players should be late teens and older.
If you only have 3-4 people
Though this game is designed to work with at least three people, it is more fun when you have more people playing. With more caption cards in play, players have more options to choose from and even more laughs. With a small group, the game gets a little boring pretty fast.
If you like this game, you need to check out Hot Seat. Talk about raunchy, this game puts the skeletons in your closet front and center on display. The person in the hot seat reads out a question. Then everyone, including the player in the hot seat, select a card from their hand that best answers the question. The rest of the players try to guess which answer the hot seat selected and, whoever guesses correctly, wins! This game is super personal, very inappropriate and sexual, and can reveal some of your deepest, darkest secrets. If you’re not afraid to air your dirty laundry, this game will keep you entertained for hours and help you get even closer to your friends.
