dude – It’s A Game Where You Say Dude
About ten years ago I had a “game” Christmas. I stocked up on games – dozens of games and all different sorts. At that time we instituted family game night and still do it to this day. Saturday nights – games, movies and pizza (or Chinese). The kids always look forward to it and so do we. We camp on weekends from May through October so those Saturdays are reserved for other activities but there are still rainy days where games are still our favorite way to spend time.
Now the youngest of our kids are in their teens and they really don’t want to play Candyland anymore. Frankly after years of that (kids from 14-32) I think I want to move on too. This year we are having a game Christmas again but now the games are more teen and adult family friendly and everyone can enjoy participating. dude is an awesome card game that everyone will love.
“dude” is from North Star Games (another is Happy Salmon). I hear my kids saying “dude” all the time. It is amazing that it is a saying that was popular when I was in high school (many years ago) and is still going strong. The word Dude can mean so much depending upon how you say it, what your emphasis is and when you use it.
This game uses “dude” in six different ways – there are 72 cards and it is designed for 3 to 6 players. The goal is to quickly find matches for as many of your cards as you can. To play, you say the word “dude” as you think it should be said, based on how it appears on your card. At the same time, listen to how the other players are saying the word “dude”. Trying to figure out if you have the same card as another player is the essence of dude.
North Star Games has some awesome games and I can’t wait to try more. I love that my kids are all now old enough to participate in these fun type of games.
