Review Day / Caption Day

One of the many fine gifts I received for my birthday was the New Yorker Cartoon Caption game from Rebecca, where players try to make up captions for pre-existing cartoons (not unlike the URI! Zone Caption Contest, but with negligible cash prizes). You don't always have to be the funniest or cleverest cartoon to win, because you also get points for guessing who wrote which caption (and sometimes the funniest ones are the most nonsensical ones from the people who couldn't think of anything). Here are some of the funnier answers from a recent round of the game.


"It's my turn to pay, and I ain't fuckin' around!" - Kathy

"Those humans and their bestiality -- look at the ugly kids I got stuck with." - Rebecca

"Cluck the government, cluck the police, and cluck the motherclucking establishment!" - BU

"Fine I'll promote you, just quit grabbing my ass." - Jason
Cultural differences in how the Heimlich Manuever is performed can lead to awkward moments. - Chris

The rules are very simple, and a single game takes about an hour. The most interesting game would probably have 4-5 players at a time -- anymore than that and you start to lose track of players when guessing. There are plenty of cartoons in the game (we barely made it through fifteen in a single game), and they can easily be reused with different crowds.

Bottom Line: A. It's tons of fun and a good mix-in with a round of Apples to Apples!
