What are the odds card game – intro
The what are the odds card game is mostly based on the real game. Instead of inventing good and spontaneous dares you have given dares on cards. The rules are very similar just a bit adapted because of the cards.
It is recommended to play with 2 to 20 people. The best number to play with is about 6 to 8 in our opinion. So everyone gets their turn and it’s manageable.
The box it comes in is very small, don’t expect a big box. It’s mainly just a regular box for a pack of cards.
What Are The Odds is a hilarious party game for those of us that are wild in nature, always a good time!
What are the odds card game rules
Rules are very easy:
- starting person draws a card and reads the dare
- choose a Player of the opposite Team to challenge
- choose the odds fo doing the dare (between 1/2 and 1/10)
- a third player counts down from 3. On 0 both players say their number inbetween the chosen odds. If they say the same number, the dared player has to do the dare and the darer collects the card. If they say different numbers, the dared player has to use the same card to challenge a new player but with lower odds.
- when someone collects a card a new round starts
- Team that collects a predefined number of cards (for example 5) wins the game.
There are some additional and team options as well. Here are the official card game rules.

What are the odds card game review
As huge fans of the real game we tested both card games and played them.
Spoiler: It’s not even close as fun as the real game.
First of all, to play the family edition with adults is just pointless. But if you play it with kids from around 8 to 14 it can be fun. For the kids at least. The dares are made for kids and young teenagers. So everyone can do it and they are very easy and not that hard. Also no one is too embarrassed to do any of them. Some cards are just plain weird.
The kids we played with had fun. Surely not all questions are funny, but some are quite good. If you have played the card game two nights you nearly know already all of the dares as there are not that many. That’s a bit disappointing because the replay factor is not very high if you do the same dares over and over. But of course you have the option to make your own dares and add them to the game, which we highly recommend doing.
Verdict: 3 out of 5
The so called Adult Edition unfortunately is also more for normal teenagers in our opinion. Some dares are funny, some are weird and some are just awkward. As young adults we didn’t really enjoy the game. Compared to the real game which we play a lot this was very disappointing. Even if you add the “drinking factor” this will not be much fun. Trust me we tried. It takes long to play/drink and the not funny at all dares inbetween are disturbing the game flow. So it gets funny at some points, but is just mediocre most of the time. We got bored very fast.
Verdict: 2 out of 5
