Prrrt is a game by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc – the same team that brought us the superb Mow (also by the same publisher and artist). Prrrt definitely has a unique theme as players are aiming to take the least shame for farting in an enclosed space. Yes, you read that right.
The game consists of 3 types of cards – shame, smell and location. Each incident, a location is drawn which determines the direction of play and the starting number of shame cards. The game ends when there has been at least 1 incident in each location (so from 5 to 9 incidents) and the player with the highest total value on their shame cards loses.
The game mechanics are quite unique so I need to explain them. In each incident someone has farted and players take turns asking each other who did it. To start, players are dealt 5 smell cards which make up their hand. On a player’s turn (let’s say Player A), they turn to their neighbour (Player B) and ask if they farted. If B says yes, then B takes the shame for the fart right away and receives all the current shame cards and that incident ends. Read the rest of this entry »
