Drug use, personal demons, wild episodes, and more. Side Effects is a “take that” card game where you race to treat all the diseases in your psyche with drugs and therapy. You’ll start with 4 Disorder cards dealt face up and then take turns trying to find (or steal) the right Drug cards to treat your Disorders. But beware! Drug cards will also leave you open to receiving new Disorders from other players! 2018 SXSW Gamer’s Voice finalist In addition to being wickedly fun to play, Side Effects is a gorgeous piece of art within itself — the gilded box contains 89 beautiful cards and an instruction booklet. A pleasing gift for anyone, it takes only minutes to learn and can play from 2 to 8 (ages 14 and up).
