GUTTERHEAD: The Fiendishly Filthy Drawing Game

Believe it or not being a parent has it's perks but sometimes there are just too many mornings and evenings of tantrums, meltdowns and the high pitched squeals. So when a relative offers to take the lady overnight, which doesn't happen too often, we jump at the chance and go a little crazy. Well, when I say crazy I don't mean going out and getting crazy drunk. For one, we cannot handle alcohol as well as we used to and two we feel like a couple of old foogies hanging out trying to relive our youth with alcohpops. These days we tend to opt for a more chilled evening hanging out with friends. Who doesn't love a night in with a takeaway, a glass of wine and a giggle with some great company. We normally invite friends over to watch a film, binge on Netflix or just for general catch up over takeaway, but we've decided to take the level of craziness up a notch and have a game night!

Game night is a great way to enjoy each other’s company without having to go out and spend a ton of money. We spend the evening laughing, or sharing stories. As we grow older it becomes more and more clear that real friends, the kind of friends that you can laugh and joke with, that will party with you will also engage in an evening in a little competitiveness. Board games are such a great way to bring out your competitive side whilst having fun, it's also a good way to break the ice and encourage guests to mingle with one another. With that in mind, we wanted to tell you all about a new adult game Gutterhead. Just before we get into this post I need to say that the following game review is suitable for over 18s only and it does contain some mischievous and playful language. If you’re looking for family friendly games then this isn’t the one for you.

The best way to describe Gutterhead is to imagine that adult party game favourite Cards Against Humanity had a board game love child with Pictionary. A little like a somewhat disturbed love child. This hilarious adult party game that involves drawing, miming and guessing over 240 fiendishly filthy words and phrases such as 'Teabagging', 'Wet Dream', 'Camel Toe' and a bunch of other stuff too outrageous to write here. One member of each team picks a card and then must draw the fiendishly filthy word on it. The rest of the team then must guess what the word is. Inside your Gutterhead box you'll get a total of 240 cards that are divided into five categories; person/place, object, action, feeling/sensation and 'Naughty or Nice'. This game also has an array of outrageous drinking rules designed to take things up a notch when the party gets boozy. There is not need for paper as the game included 4 whiteboards, 4 dry-wipe pens and for game pieces you get to use coloured poo-shaped pieces.

Basically the aim of the game is to take down the opposing team by any measures. Ha. But similar to Pictionary with one member of each team draws a word or phrase and the others members try to guess. The first team to guess correctly wins the round, rolls the dice, moves their poo shaped game counter forward and picks up a new card. The first team to the finish line wins. There are some other rules that come in to play as you move around the board, as well as some drinking game rules you can add in too. Gutterhead is suitable for 4-16 players, making it the perfect game for small catch ups, larger gatherings or even parties. You'll be sure to have a giggle or two with this outlandish game.  On the board itself you can choose between the ‘Quickie’ or ‘Marathon’ routes, meaning a slightly shorter or longer game.

Would we recommend Gutterhead? Hell yes, if you're not too prudish and up for a laugh or two. I would have to say that I would recommend this game to friends and family who have a wicked sense of humour. I don't think I would recommend this one for a game to play at Christmas with the grandparents unless they are familiar with  tea bagging! šŸ˜². It's definitely not suitable for children.  I think Gutterhead would be great for a pre drinking session, hen/stag parties or just adults hanging out. My sister has her hen do soon and this is one game that we will be using at the pre-drinking session. 

Absolutely hilarious game, never played anything like it. We played this game with our friends over a takeaway and too much wine to help save on some cash and we were not disappointed.  I actually learned a lot from this game as well, there were some cards I really couldn't guess and was surprised my friends did. I can't really remember laughing this hard for a while. I have also seen that there are some expansion packs available ensuring that you get down with the filthy lingo and connotations. So if you think that this game is your cup of tea and you're not prudish then go and get yours from Amazon, Firebox, Menkind or from Gutterhead Games, be quick they have promo codes at the moment. 


  1. Sounds like a fun game to enjoy when getting some child free time. Love that it features reusable whiteboards instead of traditional pen and paper.
