Side Effects by Pillbox Games

This crazy card game is all about mental disorders and self-medication. Sound weird? It is. Sound fun? Well, it sure looks like it. The quick rundown is that you get dealt four disease cards such as impotence, anxiety, gambling addiction, or suicidal thoughts which is your psyche for the rest of the game. The goal is to treat those with other cards. You have to watch out for side effects that make things worse or other players who may add to your woes. Be the first to treat all your diseases and you win! I give this game lots of points for creativity, great illustrations, and addressing an issue that may just make people look at mental disorders in a different light. You can pledge for a deck on their campaign for $20.
