    It's not THAT adult. Not on the CAH level. It's more sneaky double entendre stuff. Target has a lot of limited time exclusives in the board game section. For example, they have the beginner versions of Ticket to Ride and Evolution, along with an Oregon Trail card game.

    If you consider "orgy," "vibrator," "condom," "skank," and "penis" to be sneaky double entendres...

    Hahaha, yeah, that's pretty on the nose. Codenames saved us from CAH, which is definitely worse than that, but I still might try to hide the existence of Adult Codenames from the playgroup.

    EDIT: to be clear, I don't have a problem with adult themes in general, I just feel like they suck some of the creativity out of the games as the thought processes become pretty singular.

    I heard there's some decent cards in there you can use without getting explicit, just not an ideal use of money for half of the cards.

    It's odd, but I sort of think that, say, "penis" is a perfectly good Codenames thing. That'll get you some weird clues.

    Some of the other examples would definitely tend to drag you off in one direction, though.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

    i think it would be kinda fun to throw the "adult" words into the mix with the regular words. you still have to come up with ways to clue them all together, and having like Washington, squirrel, ice, and orgy as your set of words doesnt seem like it would be any easier or "sexier" or whatever. i just dont really play enough Codenames to need more words, and plus im already planning on picking up Codenames Pictures for my "more Codenames" needs.

    Board game designers are missing the real opprtunity here--just about any game could benefit from an adult edition. Imagine Mansions of Madness, but you're fighting a giant dick monster. Or Tokaido, now a game of sex tourism. Or Love Letter to Penthouse.

    Of course, some games don't need one. Dixit. Ticket to Ride. Extreme fetish game Scattergories. And of course, Taboo.

    Speaking of Dixit (Dicksit).

    I think I might enjoy a Adult version of Mysterium? There's plenty of artists with styles to suit. HR Giger in particular. I'm not really sure how it'd fit into the game as is. I think you'd need to redo the game from the ground up. Less, murder, and more, lost love? You need to figure out who was the ghost's lost love, where they seperated, and what drove them apart? Or something.

    We had a pretty epic game of Sentinels of the Multiverse last night. Roster was Termi-Nation Bunker, Dark Watch Mr. Fixer, Setting Sun Ra, and the new Captain Cosmos. We were up against Progeny in the Dok'Thorath Capital. If you are familiar with the heroes, villain, and environment, it seems that pretty much everyone is a damage fountain. It was a race to the bottom, as in the bottom of our health points. Progeny makes this worse by assassinating whoever is below 10 health with direct attacks. He also started with the fire Scion and the Ongoing that buffs his damage. Eep!

    I managed to save one person during a turn by dumping the construct that heals them when it is damaged and bursting a lot of 1 point hits against it.

    We ended up winning by using Setting Sun Ra's flipped power of dealing 10 irreducible fire damage, at the cost of removing him from the game. BLAZE OF GLORY! I managed to mitigate just enough random damage with the construct that blocks energy damage to survive at 2 health at the end of the game. Everyone else was knocked out!

    We had a bad enough experience with Progeny when we first tried him in my Sentinels group that nobody wants to try him again. I've played against him a couple times in the app and if you don't just get instantly buried under the weight of multiple Scions he's doable but really tense.

    New Captain Cosmic is definitely really strong because he can multi-trigger stuff. The guy who tried him when we got our new toys out last weekend was under the impression that I could just Haka Smash repeatedly with Taiha and was really confused when I ended up using the Taiaha, Mere, and the new XTREME Haka power instead.

    I like that Captain Cosmic and Fanatic's new versions reward you for playing them in different ways than you're usually allowed to, instead of doubling down on existing strengths. Having thought about it some I'm actually very excited to try out Xtreme Fanatic when I get a chance!

    I dunno. Progeny seems like a weaker version of Iron Legacy, to me. It's definitely a DPS check, but there are ways you can shut down his damage with lots of heroes. We just didn't happen to have the right heroes, for that. :D

    The first three saddlebag expansions are the ones on clearance at $6 each, so even with shipping it's not too bad. If you have a couple of things on clearance to buy, it's probably a decent deal. I'll probably be doing that.

    Yeah, I can't get them to play against Iron Legacy either.

    We're on the "who do you feel like playing?" system, as opposed to the "how are we going to dissect this boss," one.

    I just did exactly this. Also, free shipping for stuff over 25 bucks, which Mansions of Madness definitely is. I wasn't expecting to purchase this so soon, but this seems like a great deal.

    if there's still any MYTH players in here, I have set of the MYTH only RECON stuff they had in the KS to sell. Two hunter minis, male and female, with one deck of hero cards (beginning items not included, you must use the Archer's cards). One agent mini, Inquisitor Algar, with his stat card and bonus ability card. One mini boss, EZ-LDR, with its stat card. 3 Infected minis with their stat card.
