This isn’t a regular board game, Mean Girls: The Party Game is a cool board game! Big Potato Games have officially made fetch happen in their brand new party game inspired by one of the most influential films of our time. I, of course, mean Tina Fey’s legendary Mean Girls.
Who are Big Potato Games? They’re party game royalty. If Zatu Games was US Weekly, they would always be on the cover. Known for game night staples such as Muffin Time or Blockbuster, Big Potato have yet again delivered a game you’ll grab on a night-in with friends.
Get in Loser, We’re Playing a Party Game
Rather than baking a cake filled with rainbows and smiles that everyone would eat and be happy, the brilliant brains at Big Potato decided to release a party game. Everyone is now able to channel their inner Regina George.
Mean Girls: The Party Game allows 4 to 8 players to anonymously answer scandalous questions about each other. Each player will get the chance to tear a page out of the Burn Book and pass it around to collect each answer. This game comes with 100 question cards that will get you to answer a wide range of questions surrounding Mean Girls and beyond.
For example, one of the drawn cards asks ‘What do they push people into doing?’ You’ll need to answer this question and pass the page around the group until it reaches its poor, unsuspecting victim. They should have their own mini Burn Book filled with various mean, funny or weird answers!
Each person will take it in turns to read out each of the burns and it's up to you to choose your favourite and who you think said it. So whether your friend sometimes smells like a foot or once made out with a hot dog, now’s your time to bring it up! Points are awarded to the best burns and by correctly guessing who wrote it. The first player to fill their scorecard wins the game and becomes the Regina George of the group.
Whatever, I’m Getting Cheese Fries
You wanna do something fun? Whilst we’re not going to Taco Bell, we are playing a party game that will get your whole group involved. When I first played Mean Girls: The Party Game, I got a group of 8 together on a Wednesday, we all wore pink. Not only is this the perfect ice breaker but it quickly lets you get to know everyone VERY well. If your hair is so big because it is full of secrets, you will love Mean Girls: The Party Game.
The attention to detail in every aspect of the design is flawless. The rule book for Mean Girls: The Party Game is filled with quotes and photos of the cast from the film. It's like really pretty. Don’t you agree? You think it’s really pretty?
You Let it Out, Honey… Put it in the Book
For years, my go-to party game of choice has been Dan and Phil’s Truth Bombs. Also published by Big Potato Games, Truth Bombs has travelled across the country and globe with me. If you’ve been at a board game night with me, then you’ve played Truth Bombs.
When I opened this perfectly pink box, I let out a squeal of excitement as I instantly recognised its origins. The rulebook even states that Mean Girls: The Party Game is based on Truth Bombs which was invented by YouTube's very own Daniel Howell and Phil Lester.
If Mean Girls: The Party Game is Regina George, then Truth Bombs is Gretchen Wieners. The two work well together but they thrive as individuals. There’s no stabbing of Caesar here! Mean Girls: The Party Game has a legendary IP with a fun and addictive concept. The Mean Girls name is going to bring this game all of the attention that it deserves.
The Limit Does Not Exist
Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimised by Big Potato Games. If you haven’t, get ready to be! Mean Girls: The Party Game works best when everyone lets their guard down and has fun. Although this game is designed to be played by fans of the film, those who haven’t watched it will also be able to join in. My only note is that the cards might get repetitive if you play this one too often.
Overall Mean Girls: The Party Game is grool. I meant to say cool but then I started to say great. This is a party game that belongs in your game night rotation. Its simple yet effective concept is perfect for any level of gaming experience. Yet again Big Potato Games have created a stellar game. Four for you Big Potato, You go Big Potato!
And none for Gretchen Wieners. Bye.
