Personally Incorrect has become a popular party game for adult game nights. It’s so blatantly inappropriate that we recommend it as an alternative to Cards Against Humanity. According to the game’s manufacturer, “Unlike other lame comparison games that try to be cleverly ‘edgy’, Personally Incorrect was designed specifically so that every round will offend people! Why play a tiring game that makes generic statements? Personally Incorrect attacks the people you are playing with – and no one is safe!”
If you’re about playing offensive games, let’s explore a bit about the game…
In this review, we’ll cover:

Warning: This is NOT a game for family game nights. Make sure kids aren’t around while you’re playing because this game is meant to be inappropriate–just look at the words on the box! This game is sexist, ageist, racist, and downright dirty.
Personally Incorrect is an adult party game where players strive to find the most appropriate inappropriate answer to the game’s questions. The manufacturer says, “You don’t have to be a morally inept or a terrible person to win Personally Incorrect… but it certainly can’t hurt!”
Ages: 18+ (This game is very adult themed)
Players: 5-10 players are recommended since voting for the best answer is part of the game, but the game can also be played with 2-3 players if you don’t want to worry about voting!
In addition to the original version of Personally Incorrect (black box), there are two expansion sets out there: The Personally Incorrect Expansion 1 (the red box, which can be harder to find) and The Personally Incorrect Expansion 2 (the yellow box, the latest expansion and much easier to find).
Contents: Each expansion set contains 90 answer cards, 35 question cards, and 1 set of rules.
Ages: 18+, Players: 5-10
The object of the game is to get the most points in ten rounds. One player reads a question card and the other players find the most inappropriate and offensive answer in their answer cards. Then everyone votes for their favorite answer. Players must keep their answers a secret and cannot vote their own answers! The most outrageous allegation with the most votes wins the round.
In addition, you’ll need voting tokens, which aren’t included with the game. You can use something you have laying around the house like some coins, pens, or post it notes or you can print voting cards here.

If you’d like to see some sample questions from the game, check out some YouTubers playing the game. They title the video “This game is SO inappropriate!!” so keep that in mind if your boss (or your kids!) are nearby.
Sample questions include:
- “Insert name here” has 24 hours to live and wants to spend it doing lots of ________.
- “Insert name here” got pulled over by the police today and was caught with a large assortment of ________ in the trunk.
- “Insert name here” hopes politicians legalize public ________.
- If “Insert name here”‘s genitals could talk, they would ask for more ________.
- “Insert name here” spent all day on the toilet and ended up shitting out ________.
SO YEAH. You get the point.
Game Guru says: Personally Incorrect is a good party game but IF AND ONLY IF you and your friends are cool with the adult themed, offensive nature of the game. Unlike Cards Against Humanity, you get to put a personal spin on it by including the name of someone playing the game with each question, so prepare for personal insults!
Be sure to play with friends you know well. If you play this as an icebreaker type game or with your parents, it will be awkward and not in a good way, as it is full of crude, sexual humor that is sure to make everyone cringe. If you like this game, be sure to check out the latest expansion pack.
