Deadpool is Coming to Your Adult Game Nights with Deadpool vs. the World from USAoploy

The Merc with the Mouth is getting is own game in Deadpool vs The World, an outrageous improvisational adult party game in which players are rewarded for providing their most original—and unsuitable—commentary.

The game follows the popular adult party game formula as players are presented with prompts in “WTF?” cards which feature illustrations depicting Deadpool in a variety of absurd and uncomfortable scenarios.

An appointed “Editor,” aka the judge, then has each person fill in the blank of a “Caption” card they choose, with the goal being to tell a hilarious story behind the given image. The Editor selects the best narrative among the randomized submissions, for which its author collects the WTF? card as recognition for their creativity. The first player to collect five WTF? cards wins.

It’s the formula spawned by Apples to Apples and skyrocketed due to Cards Against Humanity which has since created dozens of similar adult games.

A game can be played in 30-45 minutes.

 

Deadpool vs The World includes 100 custom illustrated WTF? Cards, six wet-erase markers, and 300 open-ended Caption Cards.
