Inspired by some of the most popular Reductress articles and recurring themes, Play The Patriarchy is a hilarious way to bash the patriarchy while enjoying game night with your girlfriends. The gameplay is similar to the bestselling Cards Against Humanity. Here, the dealer (the Matriarch) selects a Prompt card and the other players respond to that prompt with cards from their hand. In addition to Prompt cards, there are Subject, Verb, and Descriptor cards, allowing players infinite possibilities of riotous phrases. The Matriarch then selects the card combination that most resonates with them, and that combo's player becomes the next Matriarch.
