5/365 Can you imagine a worse party game?


Your eyes do not deceive you, this is the Fifty Shades of Grey Party Game. On sale in Waterstones.

I picked it up to start to read the blurb but felt so soiled and shabby I had to put it down again quick sharp. 

I know I don't go to many parties these days, but I can't imagine one where it was ever a good idea to get this out. Trivial pursuit - played with pretend irony not really masking the raw competitiveness - maybe, but this, no way. 

Surely the point of Fifty Shades is to inject a little oomph into things (a deux in the bedroom) via the medium of sneaky smut on an e-reader. If your think your party needs this to get it going then maybe you need to re-think the guest list. If, on the other hand, your parties, ahem, go with a swing already, then unveiling this will bring things to a shuddering halt. Either way, it's a terrible idea.

  3. Yuck! Thought the first book was very repetitive and badly written, so haven't bothered with it. Would be leaving if I went to a party and someone brought that out.

    1. Indeed, but I'd like to think if I was at 'that' kind of party, people wouldn't need this game for inspiration!
