Million Dollars, But…


By: Connor Lenahan

This last school year my roommates and I became addicted to a game called Exploding Kittens, a delightfully odd card game that combined Uno with murder. It was hilarious and lead to the development of improved poker faces between us all at the cost of our collective friendship. In the same card game vain comes Million Dollars, But… from Rooster Teeth, the company behind the web series Red vs. Blue.

Now this game seems right up my alley and would similarly interest most people I’m friendly with. I am huge on games that are simple and thrive on passing engagement. I am not focused enough for the competition of Halo or Call of Duty? But Cards Against Humanity, where I can check my phone and still clean up against the competition? That’s what I love. Million Dollars, But… is like that in that you are faced with crazy hypotheticals, but your group tries to pitch who amongst you all has the worst pull. This creates a fun dynamic that rewards filibustering and crazy hypotheticals.

What’s not to love here?

For fans of stupid fun, this game could be a revolution. If you’re interested in getting a copy (the game is currently on pre-order), check the link here. This summer is about to get devilishly fun.
