Have you ever been hanging out at a party and thought to yourself, “You know, this party would be so much better if it was a sausage party!” I am sure we have all had that thought at least one time at every party we have ever been to. Unless that party was already a sausage party. Then why would we need to worry about a party becoming a sausage party when it is already in fact already a sausage party. 

Paul & Storm’s Sausage Party is a party game based on the ever popular Youtube music video of the same name.

6.5/10

Size really does matter in Sausage Party. Your goal is to have the perfect-sized weiner cooking on your grill. Each type of dog needs to be a specific length. Weiners are considered micro, only requiring 3 cards to score the full points. The aptly named Jumbo Polish needs to be eight cards long to score as much as possible. 

Everyone has their own deck. Yes, I said deck. Don’t misread that. They also have three grills in front of them. Everyone starts at the same time, but cards can be played as quickly or as slow as you like. It’s not always about going full speed and expending yourself. Sometimes you have to take your time and feel out the other players. Players can play sausages on their own grills or other player’s grills. The only rule is that you can only play the same type of a hot dog on the one already on the grill. No mixing weiners, that gets awkward for everyone, especially during score. A hot dog is completed when it gets bunned. Bun cards can be played on anyone’s grill. Once a dog is bunned, you place it off to the side.

Bunned cards score three ways. Perfectly sized sausages give two points per card (excluding the bun). A sausage that is too small is an embarrassment and only gets one point per card. An oversized weiner hurts and will cost the player a negative point per card over the perfect size. 

There are Mustard cards that act as wildcards and can be added to any sausage to increase its length. Mustard cards can be played on your own or any other players hot dog. They do count in scoring.

The player who runs through their whole deck first and places “The Final Bun” ends the round. Players add up their scores and the player with the most points is the weiner…umm…I mean winner.

I was a little hesitant to play with a bunch of sausages. It’s not really my thing. Ally learned Sausage Party and played it at one of our monthly game nights. The group she taught laughed the whole time. I thought to myself that I might be missing out on all the fun. 

Eventually I had Ally teach me the way of the sausages. It only took a couple minutes to explain, and then we were grilling. The game is very fast paced, and cards are playing all over the table. Trying to keep track of what you are grilling and what everyone has to try and either score optimal points or hurt another player is very tough with all the chaos. It becomes a frantic experience of trying to make your weiners the best lengths to score the most points.

The game consists of cards, player boards (with the directions on the back) and the box. None of the pieces are up to the quality levels that I would like to see in a game. And this game gets pretty physical. The cards are just OK. The player boards are just pieces of paper. After 3 or 4 plays, our player boards are pretty beat up. There could be significant room for improvement all around.

What makes great sausage art? That is a question I have pondered for years. If you are like me and have sought an ernest answer to this, one of life’s perplexing questions, then you may find that Sausage Party has provided an answer to your existential dilemma. Having goofy cartoon weiner characters is 100% the way to go every time. The Hot Italian, the Banger and the Zesty Knackwurst are all so much more enjoyable when depicted as silly cartoons.

I wasn’t sure if I would like sitting at a table full of sausages, passing them around like venereal diseases among college coeds. But it turned out to be a wonderful time. The first night we played, we played five games in a row. Games are very fast, usually five to ten minutes. But game after game, said something about how much fun we were having.

Recommended age for Sausage Party is 14+. Younger kids will not have any issue with this game. They will struggle with innuendos and terrible adult male anatomy jokes, which is very understandable. If you want to have fun and be filthy, please make sure you are playing with adults. Kids don’t need to be exposed to an unending stream of horrible penis jokes. Save all those for when you have adult game nights. All the “that’s what she said…” nonsense only works with the appropriate people around.

A game where size does matter, and it’s ok to put your weiner on another man’s grill, Sausage party is hilariously good time. Although it calls itself a “party”, Sausage Party does not have a high enough player count for me to consider a true party game. It only plays four. I like party games to hit at least six. But it works well as a four player game. It is chaotic and frantic and that, along with the mix of jokes (mostly bad ones) make for a fun evening. I would like to see better quality in the components, especially in a game that is so hands on. But it can be overlooked. 

If you are looking for a good time, then go ahead and whip out those sausages. Because the party doesn’t start until the sausages are part…of it. Sorry, I was trying to rhyme. And I also demonstrated how bad the jokes can be.
