What Do You Meme: Where Social Media Meets Card Games

Are you obsessed with social media? Do you scour Instagram on a regular basis looking for hysterical dog pictures and pop culture memes that make you laugh until your sides hurt? If so, you’ll get a kick out of What Do You Meme?, a card game that trades in memes and forces you to find the most hilarious combinations to win the game. What Do You Meme? is the perfect party game for the Internet age whose popularity will way outlast the viral memes on which it’s based.

Here Comes The Judge

What Do You Meme? is set up similarly to Cards Against Humanity in that each turn, one player is selected to be the judge who will pick the winner of that round. The judge will draw a card that represents the photo or meme for that round, while each of the other players will have to play the card they think represents the best caption for the meme. This shifting power dynamic is fun in that it allows everyone an equal opportunity to crown the victor while also getting to enjoy submitting their own captions for consideration.

The judge shuffles all of the cards and then reads them aloud to the amusement of all the players before picking the winner. Each round sees a new judge and a new winner, with whoever manages to win the most rounds being declared the ultimate winner. Unlike most card games, the fun in What Do You Meme? lies not necessarily in being crowned the winner, but in the hilarity of the cards and the creativity of the players.

Make Your Match

One thing that is really cool about What Do You Meme? is that the choosing of the winner is entirely subjective. You’ll have to adjust which cards you play based on the sense of humor of whoever is the judge at that moment. After, you might want to save that risqué caption for a round where grandma isn’t the judge!

The best way to win a round of What Do You Meme? isn’t always to play the card that fits the closest. For example, if you have to pick a caption for the meme of the sad looking fat cat, you might find that you’re more likely to win through shock value than for a caption that actually fits the mood of that fat cat (he really does look so sad!)

Later Editions

What Do You Meme? comes with 435 cards, so there are plenty of hilarious captions to choose from to keep the fun going all night long. For more advanced meme-lovers, there have been several expansion packs released that inject the game with some fresh humor and updated memes.

What Do You Meme? BSFW Edition is the Barely Safe For Work version of the game, which makes it a bit more acceptable for mixed crowds where the adult humor might be somewhat off-putting. What Do You Meme? Family Edition goes even further in sanitizing the humor of the game, allowing kids as young as 8 to enjoy the fun of being crowned meme king/queen.

May The Best Meme Win In “What Do You Meme?”

What Do You Meme? is suitable for ages 17 and up due to the adult humor of the caption cards, so it’s definitely not the kind of game you’ll want to play with younger kids. However, families can definitely enjoy one of the expansions for some family-friendly memes that won’t scar the kids for life. It’s also playable by anywhere from 3 to 20 players, so parties both large and small can enjoy playing the game equally.

Playing time lasts around 30-90 minutes, although really it can last however long the players want it to. Because rounds go in turns around a circle, players can choose to end the game whenever they want. What Do You Meme? is flexible enough that you can fit in a couple of rounds in between drinks or you can make it the main event of the party. The sky is the limit when it comes to the hilarious and raunchy combinations you’ll find with this line-crossing party game.

Picture a meme. Picture the perfect caption. Picture you winning. Picture it tonight!

Spice Up Game Night With Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity markets itself as a party game for horrible people. While you don’t have to be horrible to enjoy it, Cards Against Humanity certainly brings out the black humor in spades. Choose from a selection of risqué and darkly comic cards to make jokes that will have Grandma clutching her pearls.

Rules Of The Game

To begin, every player draws ten white cards. Each round, one person (the Card Czar) picks a black card to be read aloud. To choose the first Card Czar, rules of the game dictate that the last person to poop is the first to go. This sets the tone for the rest of the game, as you’ll soon discover. The black cards are usually a question or a fill-in-the-blank phrase. Black cards can be as tame as “What ended my last relationship?” or as suggestive as “What is Batman’s guilty pleasure?”

Each player (except for the Card Czar) anonymously plays one white card, from which the Card Czar chooses the winner. Every time you win, you get one Awesome Point, and a new player becomes the Card Czar for the next round. The winner of the game is the person who collects the most Awesome Points.

This game is not for the faint of heart, but it’s wickedly popular for a reason. It’s definitely the most memorable card game you’ll play with friends or family. Cards Against Humanity will have you laughing until you cry.

You can feel that pull to get this game, right? Buy it now…. (Jedi hand wave)
