Singing Machine

What’s a better way to spend family night than fighting with your dad over whether you sing The Alan Parsons Project or Dua Lipa?

But who cares what they think! It’s your time to shine!

Most great parties nowadays end with a rousing and hilarious game of Cards — but who says all the fun has to be reserved for the grown-ups? Now in Family Edition, some of the more inappropriate options in the original deck have been switched out with a lot more fart jokes. But don’t worry, you'll still be rolling on the floor at the end of this one.

8. Darth Vader and Family Coloring Book
