What’s that Smell? The Party Game that Stinks – but does it? When you think about something that stinks it usually means it is no good, but in this case it means literally stinks, but is actually a pretty decent game.
About What’s that Smell?
This hilarious fragrant-guessing party game from WowWee is designed for between 2-6 players ages 14 and over. I would disagree and say that those of all ages can play and actually as many people as you like as you can take it in turns to have a sniff.
The idea of the game is to identify the smell on the scratch and sniff cards, which includes its category type and what memories you have it. With over 50 smells from nice to downright nasty, ranging from roses to rotting garbage…and worse. The winner (aka “Nose-it-All”) gets to pick a player of their choice to suffer the Whiff of Shame: three big whiffs of one of the four outrageously pungent Stank Cards: Extra Old Toe Cheese, Diaper Blowout, Hot Chunky Vomit and Smothered in B.O.!For added fun, players can download the free iOS/Android What’s That Smell? companion app to track the number of players and sniffing time, earn extra bonus points by comparing guesses with other people who have played the game and record their priceless ‘Whiff Of Shame’ reactions. The app also provides Stank Card filters and a “don’t-miss-a-revolting-second” slow-mo effect to help capture every second of these memorable moments.
Thoughts on What’s that Smell?
As soon as you lift the lid on the game the smell just hits you! There is no denying this is indeed a very smelly game and not for the faint-hearted. It was great fun and really pleasurable to correctly identify the smells and also really makes you realise how important smell is. We smelt 6 things at a time and it was fascinating how quickly all the smells merged into one (there are instructions on how to reset your nose as it were). All the scents we came across were familiar to us, so shouldn’t be hard to guess. Some of them I really couldn’t say that I would even recognise when I knew what they were (although my son said he could) and others were just so obvious. We loved this game and it was a good way of getting the boys writing down their thoughts. Some fragrances gave off really happy memories too.
