From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn's beloved live pun competition, this "punderful card game" (Mashable) is perfect for friends and families, in person or remotely over video chat.


One part game, one part conversation starter, you don't need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.


A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.


When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.


- 200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
- 2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
- 2 80-page pads for drafting puns
- 1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
- A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players

This game is a witty way to get families to put cellphones, and other technology away for a bit and interact with each other face-to-face. --Cover Lovers Book Review

"With the right mix of people you'll be rewarded (or punished, depending on your tolerance for puns) when the mix of "Beatles" and "diner" leads to people singing lines like "I want to hold your ham..." and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Sandwich..." the fusion of "dessert" and "fraternity" leads to suggesting college students with a sweet tooth rush Kappa Theta Apple Pie and avoid hazing-nut ice cream."-- A.V. Club

"The lowly pun has long been considered the bottom-feeding bristle worm of the comedy world.... That has changed with the arrival of Punderdome 3000, a now monthly event that has turned punning into a high-functioning competition that is equal parts stand-up, beat poetry ..." -- The New York Post
