SpongeBob not only makes kids laugh from a pineapple under the sea, but also the classic cartoon character has earned his rightful spot as king of internet memes. The makers of the original What Do You Meme? game have launched a SpongeBob Edition of the game, getting the whole family involved in creating homemade memes to go along with some of the most popular SpongeBob images dominating the internet.
Designed for kids ages 8 and up, the youngest player has the honor of being the first judge of everyone’s meme ability. Each player receives seven caption cards. Using the caption cards that each player decides to submit from their hand, the judge will select one photo card to prop up on the easel for everyone to provide the best caption for. After shuffling the caption submissions, whichever caption the judge chooses as the funniest wins a point during that round. After each round, the person to the left of the judge has their turn at selecting the funniest meme.
Playing What Do You Meme? is a great opportunity to get kids interested in something they are already doing on their phones anyway — only this time, they can do it as an unplugged family activity without the eye strain. The game includes fun captions like “When you think you finally got the Krabby Patty secret formula but when you open the slip of paper, it just says, ‘Gotcha’” and “When you realize Mr.Krabs, a crab, is somehow the father of a whale.” There are also entertaining captions for older family members to reminisce on the days of adolescent embarrassment, like “When you get caught kissing your pillow at make-out Reef,” perfect for pairing with an image of a confused Patrick.
The game includes two large stacks of caption cards perfect for a large group of up to 10 players who accept the challenge of playing the game for up to “2000 years later…” — or at least until bedtime. What Do You Meme? SpongeBob Family Edition makes a screen-free family game night a good time, no matter how attached at the hip your teenager may be to their phone.
