    And this comes with instructions (on the tag sewn to its chest)! "Whenever things don't go so well, and you want to hit the wall and yell, here's a little Dammit Doll, that you can't do without.

    8. A board game so funny and fun, your friends are sure to be dying with laughter when y'all play it... even if your score is rather grim.


    I bought this gift over Halloween and mainly used it as seasonally appropriate decor (my apartment is small, festive decoration space is limited). One night I begged some friends to play it with me (neither like board games, but they both like me) and they obliged. Within minutes of starting the game we were laughing out loud and couldn't stop! To play, one player reads a description of a death from a card, the other players decide if they think the death is real or made up. If you're correct, you get to move a step further to safety, if you're wrong, you have to move the grim reaper one step closer to you. It's an absolute blast, and so fun I still have it out on my counter... we'll call it Nightmare Before Christmas decor at this point.
