USAopoly has turned Wonky into a drinking party game

Wonky is an amusing stacking game that mixes dexterity with a bit of Uno like card play with skips and reverses.  On your turn you play a card and stack a misshapen cube, if the tower falls you have to take more cards into your hand, first person to dump all their cards is the winner. I have played this game and it's a fun, light game that you can play at parties, but it just wasn't adult enough for USAopoly, so they made some changes.  Now they have released Wonky: The Unstable Adult Party Game, which takes the light-hearted dexterity game and turns it into a drinking game.  The theme now is that you are stacking radioactive drums and so to stack them you play protocol cards, and if the stack falls there are side effects.  The cards range in effect from no swearing or you have to drink, to no using real names or you have to drink, to having to use you non dominant hand to stack the cubes.  The goal remains the same with the first person who can play all their cards being the winner. I will say up front that I don't think this game needed to be made with the original edition already out there, but there is a market for these kinds of games so I see why they did.  So hey, if this is your kind of thing then you can head to your local department store and pick a copy for yourself.  Don't worry, I won't judge you for it.
