The Verdict

For those who are a fan of drinking and board games Suddenly Drunk is a must have. The one gripe we had testing out this game is that some of the cards last indefinitely. Such as the cards that cause players to have accents. So a few of us were stuck speaking in accents for the entirety of a very long board game. But we just decided on house rules to make it only last a round and it was fine. Regardless of that we’d recommend this game to anyone who likes to unwind during their game nights, this unique card game really adds a ton a fun to any gathering.
