Organ ATTACK! blends medically accurate terminology with immature potty humor.
In the game, each player is dealt a set of organs. The players use immunity, affliction, and other tactical cards to protect themselves while inflicting disease & bodily harm on their opponents. For example:
- Give Gallbladder gallstones
- Afflict Thyroid with thyroiditis
- Subject Bowels to the wrath of a day-old burrito from a back-alley food cart
The last person with at least one organ remaining wins.
The object of the game is to remove your opponents' organs using corresponding afflictions before they remove yours. The last person to still have at least one organ is the winner.
Note: May not be suitable for players who are sensitive about discussing medical conditions (for example, playing a "Cancer" card on an opponent).
I first discovered this game when visiting a friend. In this game you take turns attacking your opponents organs in the hopes that you are the last one left with at least one functioning organ. First player is decided by whoever ends up with the wild organ, which is a nice little touch and there can be no accusations of "I never get to go first" as it is all based on luck. The cards all have factual information on them, so if you're in no rush to cause systematic organ failures, you can read not only what each organ does for your body, but what each illness you're attacking them with will do.
