It’s has been an ongoing debate on the internet as to the meaning of that brown, triangular-shaped emoji. Don’t ask me why, but Kennedy has long been fascinated by it and regularly points out the paraphernalia whenever she sees the brown emoji at a store or for sale somewhere online.

She’s so amazed by it that she entered a contest to win a whole bunch of it at Gen Con. As such, she now lays on it, steps in it and has it cover her head. Does she think it’s ice cream? Not likely since she met Blaise Sewell, the guy who brought it to Gen Con to promote his game.


It’s poop, people.

The emoji is poop and so is his game.

Now, before you get your panties in a bunch, I’m not disparaging his name nor creation. Yes, we have come across several games we are not fond of, but that isn’t the case here. His game is literally Poop.

Poop The Game gives new meaning to potty talk. - SahmReviews.com

It’s funny to say and funny to play and your kids will get a kick out of the fact that the family is playing a potty-mouth game. No, not swearing. Just a lot of talk about toilets and farts and flushing and… poop. If you’re curious whether your kids can play it the answer is yes. While it has variations targeted more toward adults, the base game is very family-friendly. If they can grasp the concept of Uno, they can play Poop the Game. It’s a card-based game published by Breaking Games where the goal is to be the first to get rid of everything in your hand. First person to empty their hand wins.

At the beginning of each round, a toilet card is placed in the center of the table. Each toilet card displays the amount of poop that it can hold before it overflows. Players take turns relieving themselves (of poop cards) ranging in amount. As in real life, nobody wants to be the person to overflow the toilet so do what you can to hold back the really big loads, err cards, that are going to be the final blowout.

Toilet getting to full in Poop The Game? Flush it! - SahmReviews.com

Thankfully, there are ways to remove the mess. You know, flush it. When a 3rd card of consecutive color is played, that person flushes the toilet and replaces it with a new one. Every other player is required to draw an additional card. If that sounds too easy, don’t worry. There are different variations of the game that make these types of tasks a little more difficult to accomplish.

Wild cards make Poop The Game even more interesting. - SahmReviews.com

There’s more to the Poop The Game than just dropping a deuce in the toilet. We all know there’s a right and wrong direction to the way the toilet paper is hung. Wild cards are included to give the game even more variety and one of those is a reverse card represented by the roll. Other wild cards require players to act out or sound out certain actions on their turn. I’m not a fan of these types of juvenile actions, but since we’re playing Poop and laughing, it’s kind of the least juvenile thing happening.

While the subject matter is silly, we’ve found that sometimes you need to play a game that doesn’t require a lot of strategizing and this one fits that bill. As a bonus, the game includes a variety of alternatives to the game to make it more difficult or more entertaining. One such example is the drinking version. One of the most intriguing things about the game is the available paper bag. It’s designed with shipping in mind so you can ship a bag of Poop to a friend… or foe.

Poop The Game takes about 15 minutes and accommodates 2-5 players. Add the separate “Poop The Game: Party Pooper Edition” to increase the number of players up to 10. You can pick up a copy of Poop The Game, Party Pooper Edition or the Brown Bag Combo on Amazon or grab the combo direct from Breaking Games for $20.
