The game is suitable from age seven and up, can be played between two to five players, and each game lasts roughly 15 minutes. However, there are multiple variations of the game which you can tailor to your needs including - a two player edition, a party edition for more players, a UK edition and a NSFW Adult edition for those who plan to turn it into a drinking game.

One customer said: “Kid thinks it’s one of the best presents he got. He’s a teenager and stops playing his VR to play this with family and friends. That should say it all.”

Sarah called it a “fab game” adding: “We play this game often and the kids love it. I bought the explicit version for the adults too.”

Barry wrote: “This card game is sooo good, I can't possibly think of a way it could be better. It's extremely creative and is fairly simple to learn.”

Another said: “It's great fun on a party or board game night. I would recommend going for the NSFW version if you'll be playing with adults. This version is good if you have more than 4 players.”

Jenny said: “Our grandchildren ranging from 9-12 all adore this game as do I their grandmother! It makes you think and is a game of skill, sort of, and is very funny with the cards purposes! We’ve played it for many enjoyable hours!

One person said: “A really quick to pick up, fun game. Played it with 2 and 4 people and was great both times,” while another added, “Great xmas present. Everyone loves it.”

Dave wrote: “The children loved the idea of this game. We have played it a couple of times and each time went well. We had to remind ourselves of the rules each time, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

“The game was fairly fast moving and funny and the children did not lose interest or concentration. Neither did they miss their electronic devices! Recommended.”

Best-selling game Herd Mentality has also been slashed for Black Friday. With over 2,600 glowing five-star ratings, it's been reduced down to £17.49 from £24.99
