About F**ck. The Game
F**k. The Game is a brand new card game created by Bela Inkster in Perth Australia. It was conceived in 2014 after watching Stephen Fry’s Planet Word documentary and playing a number of various card games. The initial concept has been tested and reworked to be as fun as possible. We hope you find it as fun as our testers have.
