4 Fun Games That Always End In Tears

October 26, 2020

Like Jumanji, there are certain games that cause nothing but anger, frustration, and misery amongst friends and family, leading to the complete destruction of relationships you once thought would be always and forever. Games like:

1) Monopoly

A board game with a runtime seemingly never less than 6 hours, Monopoly brings out the absolute worst in every single player. You know your inner sadist has jumped out and taken over when you already own all the houses but refuse to end the game, even though everyone else is broke.

2) Scrabble

You’re playing the game with a friend while others watch. It’s your turn and even though you’ve gone through your available letter tiles countless times, you can’t come up with a word that’ll give enough points. It’s been 20 minutes. You’re stressed AF because you know that with each passing second, they’re judging the hell out of you. You finally play a basic word (e.g. dog) and someone snickers. Enraged, you throw the nearest wine bottle at the person’s face. There’s blood, pieces of skin, and broken teeth everywhere. Game night has descended into chaos, and Satan is pleased.

3) Whot!

Specifically, the Nigerian multi-player game named General Market. There’s nothing worse than the betrayal you feel when you think you’re about to shut shit down with your last card and then someone you consider a friend (or worse, family) destroys your dreams of being a winner by smacking you in the face with a barrage of pick 2s, pick 3s, and general markets.

4) Football Video Games

It always starts out innocently enough and almost always ends like this:

Player 1 (to opponent): “I gave you 2 goals at the beginning of the match and still won 6-0!”

Player 2 (dropping pad and walking off): “Maybe if your father worked this hard on his marriage your mother wouldn’t have left him for your landlord.”

Onlookers will now be like:

Brutal stuff
