We were sent the game What’s That Smell? from WowWee (RRP £24.99) to put through its paces. It’s such a change from the games we play normally but I liked that it was a bit different, despite it being quite whiffy! You must be quite brave to play but we felt up to the challenge. It will certainly liven up our evenings at home with friends and family.
What’s That Smell? includes 50 smells but not all of them are pleasant! Some of them are particularly disgusting. However, it’s still worth giving them a good sniff to try and accurately guess the smell! The person with the most points at the end will decide who smells the outrageously pungent stank cards (the whiff of shame!). These are smells you won’t forget in a hurry – Extra Old Toe Cheese, Diaper Blowout, Hot Chunky Vomit or Smothered in B.O. So, you see you really don’t want to end up on the losing side.
The smells are long lasting, so you can keep playing again and again. Perhaps introducing new (unsuspecting!) members of the family to the concept! To release the smell, you give it a little brush then work that nostril! Once you think you have pinpointed the smell write down your answer. Then that card is passed round for the next player to guess. Play continues till you have identified all the smells.
You can download an app to compliment the game. With it you can track the time taken to guess the smell or take silly pictures of the loser’s face struggling with the sheer amoint of stink as they take that whiff of shame! It’s a good party game for teens or adults that want a bit of silly fun! I think having the app enhances the experience. Especially when you can document players reactions to the worst fragrances. It’s quite a memorable experience!
