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.
