Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Edger
Having looked through the list of amazing items that Cara had to offer for us in the August Pleasure Panel round, I was drawn to something a little bit different to things that I had reviewed before. Described as an adult party game, the Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game from Simply Pleasure caught my attention as something that could be a bit of a laugh with a group of friends.
Before it arrived, I had a look around online to see what kind of things I could expect from the game and how to get organised with a group of people to play it.
The description that I found online, from the manufacturer of the game, said:
“The crazy party game for crazy people! The raunchy party game where you act out adult scenarios for your team to guess. The opposing team reviews 5 of each game card type and assigns you a Character Card, Action Card, and Location or Object Card. You then have two minutes to act it out for your team. Game Includes: 108 Character Cards, 108 Action Cards, 108 Location or Object Cards, a 2-Minute Timer, and Game Instructions. For 4-12 players.”
So essentially, I thought to myself, that this seems like a game that is similar to “Cards Against Humanity” where you have to act out the scenarios for your team to ultimately guess. I am mostly thinking that it is like “Cards Against Humanity” meets Charades.
When the Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game arrived, I could see it was packaged nicely and everything about it feels like it has a bit of quality. From the outside of the box, on the front, you would not know how adult some of the themes are inside of the game itself, with the game simply described as “The Crazy Party Game for Crazy People”. The back of the box essentially describes the information that I found from the internet to describe the game and basically how to play it. The number of action, location and object cards is nice, offering a multitude of different scenarios to act out upon repeat playing.
We cracked open the Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game box and the items inside were opened and we decided to start playing. Having a quick look at the rules it was clear how to play. Essentially, you divide up into two teams, and get 5 of each type of card drawn to your team. You then must select a character card, action card and location/object card for one member of the other team to act out for their team. They then have two minutes to guess what you are acting out. The rules also say that the player acting out can speak and use sounds, but must not mention the words or information that is on the card.
From the cards that I have included in my picture, you may get a combination to act out like “A sexy grandmother masturbating at a glory hole”. I guess at this point it becomes quite obvious that the game is not one to share around the Christmas table with family, it is more to be played with a group of friends, and I would also suggest that some drink being involved is also quite useful. Having a flick through the cards though, it is important to note that although the cards are not all sexual in nature, some of them can be quite disturbing and if that is not really your thing, it could probably be best to steer away from this game. However, nothing that was written down on the cards seemed too outrageous for us.
We found the Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game to be quite a laugh and some of the combinations that had to be acted out featured combinations of words and ideas that we could never expect to have heard in sentences together. We had to amend the rules slightly, as 2 minutes was just not long enough for us to get our head around some of the things that you had to act out, but I guess that is the fun with something like this, you could really change the game to play it in a number of different ways. This is when I kind of thought to myself that the game really could just be interchangeable with the “Cards Against Humanity” game and if you already own this, as we do, that this game does not really add too much on top. Yes, the scenarios are adult, but they are in both games. So, in reality, you could just play either game in either style.
Overall though we did have a laugh playing this game, and the description of “Cards Against Humanity” meets Charades does still feel apt. The best part of the game for me was often the look of despair on a team mates face when they are first faced with what they are going to have to act out for the rest of the team. The Acts of Insanity Role Play Party Game certainly is something that we would play again, and in the right company can certainly be a good laugh.
