If you LOVE Cards Against Humanity then you will love this family friendly version called Kids Against Maturity. Obviously the majority of our kids are 10+ so this works well for us as it is something that entertains the older kids and us without being too mature. We got gifted a set of Kids Against Maturity whilst at BlogOn in August for the purpose of an honest review and the kids couldn’t wait to play it.We got gifted the illustrated version so this honestly added to the fun and chaos of playing with two 10 years, a 14 year old and 3 adults.
We as a family love a good card game and we have been trying to have more game nights especially as the winter nights are drawing in and we can’t venture out as much. This game honestly was picked first time every time we opened the games cupboard for a good month.
What Is Kids Against Maturity?
From the makers of the popular adult game Cards Against Humanity, Kids Against Maturity is designed to be a family-friendly party card game full of layered innuendos to get the whole family laughing. The Kids Against Maturity box contains over 600 cards with a mixture of questions and answers. Kids Against Maturity is aimed at children 10 years + BUT the box recommends that you go through the cards removing any that you feel are inappropriate for the age of your children. It is not suitable for ‘hyper-sensitive parents’ according to the box and I have seen some of the cards so would agree that it is best for you to check through them first if worried.
How To Play Kids Against Maturity?
Kids Against Maturity is one of the simplest games we’ve played. The game is ideally played with four and more players. If you want to get used to the idea of the game and just test it out it works between two adults but the more people the better. In order to start the game you begin by dealing out 10 answer cards to each player.
Each player then takes turns reading out 1 blue question card, which contains a mixture of straightforward questions such as “It’s a bird, It’s a plane, No, It’s….., common phrases and sentences with a word missing.
Everyone EXCEPT the question reader then answers the questions with the funniest card in their hand, with options such as ‘biggest brownest log’, ‘crop dusting’, ‘booty scooty’ and lots more.
The person with the funniest answer is chosen by the question master of that round and they win the hand. The first person to win five rounds is the winner and the game can take between 30 to 90 minutes depending on numbers of players, the laughing fits and the concentration levels.
What We Thought About Kids Against Maturity?
In all honesty – the kids loved it, we loved it and it was a good laugh. There were some cards that probably shouldn’t of been played with 2 ten year olds but they loved it so we gained some parenting points. We did find that some of the answers contained USA references and we were left a little confused but most of them we understood or the teenager saved us. There are definitely a couple of innuendos that the adults and the teen found hilarious but weren’t quite picked up by the 10 year olds luckily.
Overall we have all enjoyed playing Kids Against Maturity. It is easy to play, and even though it is first to 5 wins you can adapt it so it can be as long or short a game as you need. There are over 4,000 combinations of answers and questions so it isn’t something that you will finish and get bored of quickly. I would say it is a great travel game but it is a little too heavy to carry in my opinion so it would work well if not travelling by public transport.
