Welcome back to Skybound Saturday in the Rat Hole. This month, we will be looking at another expansion for Skybound Games’ second hit party game, Red Flags. If you have never played Red Flags before, a good place to start would be our review of the Core Game. This month, we’ll be looking at the Sexy Red Flags expansion.
In last month’s Skybound Saturday I talked about Dark Red Flags, an expansion that was comprised of entirely “red flag” cards (if that seems odd in a game CALLED Red Flags, you should re-read the that Core Game review). This month we are going to talk about the opposite, Sexy Red Flags.
Where Dark Red Flags was all about the negatives, Sexy Red Flags is all about the perks. The deck is made up of 75 white perk cards, each one sexier and kinkier than the last. It’s intended to be mixed in with the Core Deck, but it is completely plausible to just use this for your perks and Dark Red Flags expansion for the red flags, to have a slightly smaller, but more intense, experience. After all, you know what they say: It’s not the size of the deck, it’s how you use it. (I’m sorry, that joke had to be made. If you weren’t already thinking something close, this expansion may be a little too naughty for you.)
Innuendos aside, I try to keep this site reasonable PG-13. As such I’m not even going to quote a lot of these cards. But that doesn’t mean they are all raunchy. Some are just are just fun, like “Abs are a work of art”, “Lets you play video games during sex”, and “Won a Pulitzer prize for their dirty talk”. Others are a bit friskier like “When you have sex with them you time travel” and “Look and smells just like your sexy English teacher” (I’m not sure who will get more traction David Tennant or Van Halen)
I’m going to give the same warning for this that I gave for Dark Red Flags. If you are planning to play Red Flags in any sort of public place, or anywhere children might be listening in, maybe leave both of these expansions at home. If you are playing in an environment that is strictly adult, go nuts! With the right group this is an amazing game, and pushing it into something a bit weirder just makes it even better.
Join us again next month for Skybound Saturday, but until then I’m going to close this with two words: HELICOPTER SEX.
