Mitzvah or Shandah Conversational Card Game
Here she goes again! Danielle in Doodles has created a clever opinion and reason game - developed with the input of a couple of standup comics in New York City. Guaranteed laughs and great gift for holiday party hosts.
Here's what Danielle has to say about Mitzvah or Shandah:
We created a hilarious conversational card game inspired by the High Holidays that you can play all year long with friends and family (recommended ages 14+ for some cards about alcohol, drugs, bris, and romance). It's great for family events, ice breakers, Shabbat dinner, or parties!
Pick a card, pick a side, and discover who the biggest mitzvah-doer is and who needs work.
- You light candles for Shabbat but accidentally start a fire.
- You go on Birthright and never come back to the US.
- You never had a Bar Mitzvah, but you throw your dog a Bark Mitzvah.
Are those situations more mitzvah or shandah? And if you don’t know the word shandah, well that’s a shandah (Yiddish for shame or disgrace) . . . or is it?! Debate 100 hilarious situations inspired by Jewish life that were developed by New York comedians (like FreddyG and Arielle Kaplan), writers, and friends.
Then decide who in your group is most likely to do what’s described on the card, such as develop a crush on their rabbi, talk too much during services, or run out of food at an event they’re hosting.
