Second Look - Boardgame reviews in depth. Check out that cat.“I get nervous at the prison because some was…”

That’s pretty much Knee Jerk in a nut shell. Launching on Kickstarter on September 16th, Knapsack Games has created a simple and chaotic party game that fits in a small deck box.

The moderator for the turn puts two cards down, lining up the arrows appropriately. They then draw 3 cards, and fit the last piece of the sequence with the card of their choice. First person to blurt out something that completes the statement gets the first card as their point, then play continues. It’s simple, and causes a ton of ruckus as the players try to come up with something on the spot before the others do.

SituationExample_largeThis game has done a bit of travelling with me lately.

The deck has 55 cards, and the game suits 4-8 players ages 9+ with a playtime of 10 minutes. If this ends up getting priced right, I can see it becoming a pretty big hit.
