Everyone is busy. Our lives are so full of things to do, that finding time to play a game can be a challenge.

We Didn’t Playtest this is an easy to learn, simple to play, fast, silly game that can fit in a purse or pocket.

The rules? Start with a hand of two cards. On your turn, draw a card then play a card. If you don’t lose at the end of your turn, continue playing. Play until someone wins, or everyone else loses. See… simple.

The cards range from instant win/lose cards (did you get eaten by a dragon!?!), to black holes, to Rock Paper Scissors battles. No thinking required. Which will you choose, Cake or Death?

Note that the title of this game says it all. This game may take 10 seconds or 10 minutes, and there isn’t much strategy and lucky draws can end a game quickly. But it’s light, fun, silly, portable and fast. Good one to keep in a glove compartment or suitcase for summer travels.
