CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends Funemployed.
Thi is a card-based party game in which everyone’s trying to become employed. Apply for real jobs, like astronaut, lawyer or priest, with unreal qualifications, such as a “German accent,” the “handcuffs,” or a DeLorean. In the game, each player uses his qualifications to convince the other players that he’s the best qualified for a job. To do this, players tell the story of why their qualifications make them the best fit for a job by role-playing and acting like they are on an interview. Find innovative ways to use your qualifications and become the most “funemployed” player at the table! This is a hilarious party game for groups of all ages.
