Ages 11-18. We'll do a different activity every week, gadgets, games & crafty fun. This week: Work out your frustrations with a fun game of Stupiduel! Use the cards you're dealt to craft a plan to assassinate your enemies, who have to defend themselves with their own cards. Sounds straightforward, except these cards are full of things like snowmen, tuxedos, and bubble gum. Will you kill more than you are killed? That's up to the other players to judge!
