It’s time to get the party started with MADPOLY. An all-in-one party board game from the seasoned party game professionals at Mad Party Games.
Madpoly is a party game that’s also a drinking game. So while you’re bouncing around the board, collecting cash and completing tasks, you’ll also be given drinks as you go. Over the weekend we got to try this fun party game out, and here’s what we thought of it.
How to Play Madpoly
Like any good drinking game, Madpoly is simple to understand and play. Just grab your favorite character, throw him on the start space, and you’re good to go.
The goal of the game is to get the most cash, and get your opponent’s drunk along the way. Each player starts the game with 85$. (A 5 dollar bill, a 10 dollar bill, a 20 dollar bill, and a 50 dollar bill.) Once everyone is set up and the spinner is in place, players should decide how long the game will be. This is done by deciding how much money is needed to win.
Taking Your Turn
A typical turn involves rolling both dice, moving the player accordingly and then doing whatever action is on the space they land on. There’s a number of different types of spaces on the board such as truth/dare cards, spinning the bottle spinner, character spaces, drinking spaces, and more.
Truth or Dare Cards
Whenever a player is instructed to draw one of these cards, they grab one from the deck and read it out loud. If the player completes the action they get the reward money that is listed. However, if they chicken out they have to pay the penalty listed on the card.
If a player rolls the same number on both dice, they get to take another turn. However, if they do this 3 times in a row they have to take a punishment shot.
Occasionally a player might be awarded a Joker Card. This is the ultimate “nuh-uh” a player can use whenever they want to avoid doing a task or paying a penalty.
Smack dab in the centre of the board is a pretty self explanatory bottle shaped spinner. Whenever instructed to, the player must spin the bottle and do whatever it lands on.
Ending The Game
Once a player reaches the agreed upon amount of cash they win the game. Everyone should cheers to their awesomeness.
Madpoly combines a lot of fun party game ideas into one game. It’s easy to set up and play, which is key for a good party game since half the players might be playing for the first time and want to skip to the action. There’s a great mix of challenges and drinking rules to make sure everyone is having a good time.
The board and character designs are tons of fun. Although there’s a clear rulebook provided, you will barely need it because this game is very intuitive. The spinning bottle in the centre of the board is a nice touch and adds another layer of excitement to the game. There’s also a ton of Truth, Dare and Go cards provided ensuring you never play the same game twice. It plays best with at least 4 players and even teams, but we had fun even with uneven numbers as well.
There’s really nothing bad to say about this game, or any of the games we’ve tried from MadParty games for that matter. They know how to make a great drinking game that keeps players engaged and having fun. Combining simplicity, fun challenges and wacky drinking rules is a recipe for success. We’d recommend this game for anyone looking to have add a bit of excitement to their next party.
