I'd say this was a pretty fun party game for me and my friends to play. There were some rules that didn't quite make sense at first and there were some situations that we found to be confusing but making house rules was easy after a few playthroughs. It was definitely worth it in the end though!
I've played this game with my family (including pre-teens and teenagers) and friends (all adults) and had a great time with both groups. It's amazing that the same cards can be used with each group and provide *very* different results. The game with kids was silly and loud and fun. The game with adults (while having adult beverages) was hilarious and rude and silly and naughty... but all in good spirits. Perfect party game that works with all groups in all occassions.
I'm one of those folks who groan when Cards Against Humanity hits the table. These days, it's just hard having fun trying to be a bad person. That's why a game like Deer Lord is a welcome addition to my game library. With a fun blend of duels, challenges, and dupes - Deer Lord is always different. Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, the game has the ability to pull you out of any shell you may be hiding under. Before you know it, you'll be doing things like licking tables, rapping, spinning around in circles, naming as many "celebrity" soccer players you can, or partaking in a challenge to see who can stuff the most things in their mouth. The game is broken up into two types of cards - Duels (challenges between you and another player) and Dupes (odd things you try to do without getting caught). The goal is to get rid of your cards, but at some point in the game, you're too busy laughing to really care all that much. If you get caught trying to complete a dupe, you get more cards. If you get someone to incorrectly guess what dupe you're trying to do, they get cards. Deer Lord is a refreshing take on party games that has been fun every single time I've played it. Normally, I get burned out on party games relatively quickly, but not this one.
