EFFWORDS is a party game of fake words and wacky definitions. The rules are simple. Each round, one player uses letter tiles to create a fake word, and the other players anonymously submit their funniest definition cards to define the word. The player who submitted the best definition earns points. Complete an optional challenge for bonus points.
Think Scrabble meets Cards Against Humanity.

Justin Berman, Game Designer - Justin created the idea for EFFWORDS after losing numerous loved ones to the overly competitive and dastardly board game, Scrabble. His goal is for you and your family to spend hours of wonderful quality time effing up the English language.
A big shoutout to Michelle Nguyen, a recent Georgetown Law graduate, who helped us flesh out the idea for the game! Michelle even came up with about 100 completely outrageous definitions!
Finally, another big shoutout to James Jillson, a recent graduate from SMU with a Master of Arts in Arts Management and a Master of Business Administration. He participated in numerous playtests and suggested many excellent gameplay ideas. He also helped tremendously with the business side of EFFWORDS.
