Every now and again, Myself, Matthew and out 2 eldest boys like to have a games night when our younger boys are in bed. 

Sometimes we will play on the Xbox or Wii but other times we will play actual games. But finding games suitable and appropriate for kids around their teens is tough. Then we came across What’s That Smell?

What’s That Smell? is a unique new game from WowWee where taking a sniff makes you a winner. Eagerly anticipated and already gaining fans, it’s the new the scratch & sniff party game that stinks! What’s that Smell is the first ever hilarious fragrant-guessing party game that opens up to a world of interesting whiffs. Guess the scents correctly to win or suffer the stinky consequences.

There is an app for What’s That Smell? Available to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Although this isn’t compulsory, it does add to the game playing experience. When playing with the app you are able to use the timer to time the rounds, keep score and record Whiff Of Shame moments. 

To play you need two to six players. Start your timer (app or clock) pick a mystery whiff card, brush it gently with a Whiff Strip and try to guess the scent! When the time is up pass it on to the next player and do it all over again until the smell round is over.

You then tally up the points into different categories

I can honestly say that this game was a winner in our house. If you’re a boy mum you will know how well smells and boys go together! Haha! 

Some of the smells are damn right rotten, I got to the point where I didn’t want to do it anymore as the smells were so realistic and disgusting! I’ll be honest, I borked and gagged a good few times. Which, Matthew and my boys found hilarious! I’m sure we all cried with laughter at each others reactions reactions to the smells! 

We definitely will be getting this game out again. What’s This Smell? would be a perfect game to play for family get together’s over Christmas and the New Year.
