Stuff Happens - Game Review and Giveaway

For most of us there's a point in life (or several points) when "stuff happens".  Depending on the severity of the circumstances, we roll with the punches or freak out.  May as well make a game of it by playing the Stuff Happens card game!

Stuff Happens is a card game for two or more people, and includes 200 Stuff Happens situation cards.  Due to its content, this game is rated for ages 13 and up.  The object is to be the best at ranking embarrassing or horrific events from the least worst to the absolute worst.  This game is a way to lighten the mood and have a fun time with good friends.  It's not overly strategic or challenging, but it is fun!

Play starts with each player getting three cards each.  The remaining cards form a draw pile. Players then place their cards face up on the table in front of them, ranked by the numerical order of the Misery Index.  When it's your turn, you have to draw a card from the draw pile and read the situation but not reveal the misery index number.  The person to your right has to determine that card's proper place among the three cards you have laid down.  If you guess correctly, you win the card and it remains face up with your other cards.  If you guess incorrectly, the player to the left can take that card by guessing.  Play continues clockwise until someone guesses correctly and wins the card.  The game becomes a tad bit harder each time correct guesses are made and more cards are added.  The first player to accumulate 10 Stuff Happens Situation Cards wins the game.

Each situation on a card is rated with a Misery Index Number.  Interestingly enough, those ratings were determined by a panel of people with actual psychiatric experience.  In other words, they know their stuff!  Factors for the rating include anxiety level, emotional trauma, and long-term psychological damage.

Some of the situations on the cards are fairly minor while others are more extreme.  Some examples are: Chronic Insomnia (52.5 Misery Index), Paper Cut (0.1 Misery Index), Seeing Your Father Naked (21 Misery Index), and Phone Falls in Toilet (45 Misery Index).

Win It!

One person will win a Stuff Happens card game.

Suburban prep said...

While neither would be great I assume falling might be better (though my mother would not agree).

Maria Gagliano said...

OMG...I don't know. get pepper spray in eyes?

Jamie Martin said...

MACE ME, please!

Unknown said...

I would not want either! But if I had to choose it would be pepper spray in the eyes as I think it might be easier to recover from.

Charlene S. said...

Pepper spray, you can't die from that one.

Jan Lee said...

Sorry, neither. Guess pepper spray, as you could wash that out.

Dawn Ballo said...

I'd rather fall down the stairs. I already have enough eye problems lol.

Rebecca Orr said...

Uggh, it is hard to decide! I think I would go with falling down the flight of stairs. Both would be painful.

Unknown said...

I would rather get pepper sprayed! Breaking bones sucks!

Megan Evans said...

I think I'd probably want to fall down a flight of stairs.

Kortney Lah said...

AHHH! I really don't want to choose either, but since I have to..... I think I would rather fall down a flight of stairs? Is a flight classified as a specific number of stairs? Or could it just be a few stairs? ;)

Heather! said...

I guess pepper spray. I've actually experienced that once when somebody attacked a night club I was in. It was pretty horrible, but I recovered from it within a relatively short while, which might not be the case if I broke bones falling down some stairs, so....;/

Hannah Knapp said...

fall down a flight of stairs

Nicole426 said...

I'd definitely rather fall down the stairs

Yvonne Woodstock said...

I have fallen down the stairs quite a few times when I was growing up but even so, it would depend on if they are carpeted or not and how steep and how many stairs there are and if there is a railing for me to try to grab. Haha.
OTHERWISE
I would pick getting pepper sprayed in the eyes even though that could potentially feel worse and I am sensitive about my eyes, at least you can't die from pepper-sprayed eyes and you could from falling down the stairs wrong and even if I didn't die, I think I would heal from the eyes thing much faster than the many serious potential injuries from falling down stairs.

fall down the stairs!
