Single and looking for the love of your life? Well good news, your search is over! Welcome to "Master Dater," where the quest for love takes a hilariously creative turn! In this lively party game, players step into the shoes of singles on the lookout for their ideal partner. The gameplay is simple yet engaging: one player plays the 'single', flipping over three requirement cards that spell out what they're searching for in a date. Other players then combine a head and a body card to concoct their version of the purr-fect date. Each player then passionately pitches how their candidate is the ideal match for the single's needs. It’s a test of wit and persuasion, and if your candidate meets enough singles' requirements, victory is yours!

What's purr-ty cool:

 A Party Game with Universal Appeal:

Master Dater shines as a versatile party game, perfect for various types of gatherings. I had the joy of playing this with my coworkers as a form of team bonding, and let me tell you, the laughter was contagious! We actually were crying at one point from how hard we laughed. It was such a success that several of my colleagues got their own copies of the game to introduce to their families. It's especially fantastic for families with teens or adult children, striking that delicate balance of being light-hearted and silly without making anyone squirm uncomfortably like some other party games can.

Easy-peasy Learning Curve:

What's great about Master Dater is its simplicity. The rules are straightforward, making it a breeze for newcomers to join in the fun. This ease of learning means you can quickly get into the game without lengthy explanations and get to having fun faster – ideal for new gamers and seasoned gamers alike. It’s a great choice for those evenings when you want to lighten the mood and just have a good time with good friends.

Comical Art:

The artwork from Cyanide and Happiness, adds an extra layer of fun. You aren't creating boring, normal singles. Players get creative, combining bizarre head and body cards to form unique date candidates – ranging from the eccentric Gothic Mother Nature to the quirky Tree Tornado. The lively discussions and debates that ensue are the heart of Master Dater, making each round an unpredictable and humorous adventure.
