Joking Hazard is a party game where you compete to finish awesome/terrible comic strips with friends! The rules are simple: First, everyone takes a bunch of panel cards and a judge is picked. The first panel of the comic is drawn randomly from the deck. The next panel is placed intentionally by the judge, making a set-up. Everyone else finishes the comic with a card from their hand, and the judge picks the funniest one. This box comes with 350 comic panel cards. It also has 10 add-your-own-words cards, for if you get a good idea for one or want to write your stupid friend Greg into the game to make fun of him.
The creators said: “Someone on the Internet once told us that making stick figure comics is easy as hell, and that we were ugly and stupid.
They were right on all counts. So, after crying for a few hours, we created the Random Comic Generator which since its inception in 2014 has entertained millions with its computer-generated comedy.
After a few weeks of playing with the Random Comic Generator, we started to wonder if its hundreds of random panels might lend themselves to a card game, where you compete against your friends to finish a comic with a funny punchline. So we printed out all of the RCG panels and started playing with them.”
Draw 7 cards. The deck plays the first card, select a Judge to play the second, then everyone selects a third card to create a three panel comic strip. The Judge picks a winner.
The game includes a deck of 350 unique panel cards – that’s 15.4 million combinations of comics!
