Zobmondo! You Gotta Be Kidding

Publisher: Zobmondo

Players: 2+

Age recommendation: 7+

You Gotta Be Kidding! Rules: and

Anyone familiar with the original (mostly-not-suitable for children) Zobmondo will know the gist of this family-version of You Gotta Be Kidding!

Presented with 2 choices (neither one appealing) a player must choose which they would rather do. Once selected, the other players take a moment to decide how well they know the other players by trying to anticipate others' choices.

A word of warning: this is a gross game. If your family laughs about pooting in each others' presents (presence) or sings songs about monkeys throwing their poop, then this game is for you. If you are offended by Walter the Farting Dog, you might want to pass.

Here is an example set of questions:

"Would you rather drink liquid found leaking from a garbage bag OR chew on a hairy clump found between the cushions of an old couch?"

Other aspects of the game play include Pictionary-esque portion, a choose your dare portion, and the red-hot chili pepper challenge.

This last challenge was the only part of this game that my 4 year old son took issue with. You press a button to start the frantic samba beat and begin passing it around until the pepper screams at you. Where the rest of us found it fun and thrilling, he found it panic-inducing.

My daughter's score: thumb up

My son's score: thumb middle

My score: 6 points - I was offended by Walter the Farting Dog, but we did laugh and "ewww!" a lot during this game provided to us by Zobmondo.

  1. Hi I purchased the game at a local thrift shop. Every game part is included except for the rules. The lunk you posted is not good. Any idea how I can find the rules of this game? Any guide will help me ?
