Incohearent is a play on words party game. Although the box claims that this is an adults only game, and there is a whole section of cards themed ‘kinky’ there are enough innocent cards that you could either use them or make your own. We wouldn’t recommend letting children go through the box themselves though!
Incohearent is a box full of cards. Each card has an answer on one side, usually a phrase or famous person, and a version of that phrase on the other. The version often looks like gobbledegook until it is read out loud, repeatedly stopping and starting the parts of the ‘words’ at different places. Then it starts to sound somewhat like english or a version of it.
Most of these work incredibly well once you find the rhythm to say them in. In fact the ones we struggled with other people didn’t as it can depend on accents and cadence of speech as much as pronunciation.
There is a loose game in here about collecting cards as points, but as with all games of this type, the fun is in whipping out a few cards on a social night and making fools of yourselves with people you trust.
So while Incohearent doesn’t break the mold or offer much new, it is incredibly fun and memorable. It’s the sort of game that will create memories of laughing until you cry, because of the way the phrases turn out and how you and your friends pronounce them!
