Firestone, Jo and Fred. Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers. New York, USA: Clarkson Potter. 2016.


Based on a crazy monthly pun competition in Brooklyn, New York, and hosted by comedian Jo Firestone and her dad, Fred Firestone, this wacky, fun, word-loving, pun-groaning game can now be played at home with family and friends. With at least three players competing individually or as small teams, each player alternates being the prompter with being the pun-er. Sorting through cards with pun prompts, each cleverly thought-out pun is voted on and a winner crowned. With a chance to win the special item in the mystery envelope, Punderdome is sure to delight and create hysteria as well as deep moans.

Never having heard of the game before yet being a self-proclaimed word-nerd, I knew I had to try it. Roping family members into playing with me, as the game went along, things just got goofier and more ridiculous. Definitely a game I will take on vacation, to a picnic, or any social get-together, Punderdome has possibilities for fun times. Tweaking the game was easy to fit our style and the mystery envelope prizes can be just as creative. Unique and challenging.
