It's the most politically incorrect game of the year... perhaps of all time!!!

You asked for it and... well... okay, so you didn't. However, we felt it was up to us to deliver the goods anyway with STD: The Game!

Never before has it been so funny to deliberately give your best friend herpes! Or treat your significant other to a heaping helping gonorrhea! And, yes, if you're wondering, the HIV virus lingers in this pool of dastardly diseases.

The object is very simple.... each STD has a point value. Infect the other players with as many STDs as you can before the draw deck is all played out. At the end of the game, add up all of your STD points and the lowest score wins. And watch out for that HIV card...whoever ends up with one doubles their points!

Beware of Skanky Carla, if she shows up, you could be in for more STDs than you bargained for. If you're lucky enough to play the Rubber Seal condom card, you can stop everyone from passing their STDs on to you!

Each card has a little factoid about its nasty little disease.

WARNING! This game may induce excessive showering and repeated examining of one's own body.

You can find it for sale online at https://www.thegamecrafter.com

skanky carla doesn't sound witty enough to NOT be based on an ex-girlfriend.

"STD: The Game" - the answer to a question no one was asking -

namely, "When will someone invent a game where the players attempt to infect one another with sexually transmitted diseases?"

I thought the point of games was to provide a diversion from real life.

As a matter of fact, there is a teacher who gives classes about the dangers of STDs and uses the game to break the ice at the beginning of each class. And the rules include the contact info for the CDC. Thanks.

Don't mind a few negative comments. These kinds of games aren't for everyone... and honestly we don't care if you don't like the theme because there are plenty of people who do. But we will delete and report any and all comments that include a personal attack such as "Nice post A-wad". You don't know any of us so keep the insults to yourself.

When you begin your thread like this, I believe that you are inviting some negative responses. And trying to com off now making it sound somewhat educational seems disingenuous.

I agree with Willy. You shouldn't be surprised when you get insulted after sending mixed messages like you have.

And getting so upset and threatening after a single incident of "being insulted" is plain childish.

If my grandson's teacher was using this game as a "teaching aid", with cards like "Skanky Carla", I'd be looking into getting that teacher FIRED!

Educational game? Horsehocky!

I'm no champion of political correctness, infact, I bloody despise it. It's a small step from PC idiocy to the Thought Police.

However, marketing a game where the purpose is to give your partner AIDS? That's just wrong on a human level, political correctness has got nothing to do with it.

OP, I wonder if you have ever seen Bill Hicks' routine on marketing? If not, do yourself a favour, and check it out.

I played this game in 1989 in the Philippines. While tense and somewhat strategic, it was really not that fun. Pass.

May have been different if you would have positioned it as an educational game.

Not sure I'd want to know you after this post.

Way to go on promoting your game.

Yea... developers should stick to making non-offensive games like No Retreat, where you learn about the joy of killing millions of people. Or the village, where you sacrifice old family members to earn points. Or...

Morally, it seems a bit silly to criticize this game and not the plethora of zombie/infection games on the market. Plus, can more people talking about safe-sex and STDs be a bad thing? I know the USA ranks #1 among teen pregnancies and many STDs across western 1st world countries... but there are some things we shouldn't be #1 at.

Wow... everyone thinks they have to carry a torch for the masses. It's a frigging game people, get over it.

Never said it was an educational game and never said the teacher who uses it was high school.

Violence is entertainment? If you believe that, go have a chat with someone who lost a family member or friend in a war, by way of gang violence or on September 11th and see how many people agree with you. Go talk to all those kids who have ever been bullied or were the victims of school violence because of a kid who had been bullied.

Get off the soap boxes people.

Are you seriously getting upset by getting negative responses over a game that IS, as you yourself said it, "the most politically incorrect game of the year... perhaps of all time"?

Just like people with aids will find it very funny to infect each other with STDs in this game? I'm not sure what your point is

The funniest thing about the game is watching everyone around the table trying to secretly check themselves for symptoms while reading the little factoids on the cards... hoping that nobody is catching them doing it!
