Rabble Is A Fun And Hilarious Card Game Alternative For College Nights Out

OK, picture this: You and your friends want to go out to the club and turn up, but there's one slight problem. You have bills coming up, and you'll be damned if you don't have heat, water, or any electricity. Your friends still want to have a good time, but they have no idea what to do. Then suddenly a shining beaming ray of light comes down from your ceiling, and in like a saving grace from God it appears in front of you: Rabble.

OK, so maybe it doesn't exactly go down like that but you get the picture.

Rabble is a card game that almost plays like charades, but with its own little twists to it. There are two teams, and you have to work together to guess all of your team's Rabble cards within 45 seconds each round. At the beginning of each round, each team gets 20 Rabble cards and six challenge cards. On each Rabble card, there is a word that one person on your team has to act out for three rounds.

I know what you're thinking. "This is just like charades, but with cards!" "Where's the twist?" "I'd rather go out and not have electricity at home." See, that's where the challenge cards come in. During each team's guessing turn, the enemy team has to play a challenge card from their deck of six to give to the other team. Each challenge card has a hilarious and sometimes (most of the time) embarrassing and difficult task that you have to perform, which makes the game challenging and fun. For example, while I was acting out the card "Drunk Sex" (yes, that's a card), I had to act like a baby in the process. It was completely embarrassing to do, but everybody around me seemed to be enjoying me making a fool out of myself.

It's even worse as you go through each round due to the difficulty increasing every time. During round one, you're allowed to use words, sounds, and gestures to act out cards. In round two you can only use one word per card and sounds, and on round three you can only use gestures. I should also mention that certain challenge cards only work for certain rounds, so they only make it more difficult for you and your team. For every card your team guesses right, you earn a point for that round. Whichever team has the most points at the end of all three rounds wins the game.

After playing this game with my friends, I have to say this was the most fun we'd ever had with any card game. Something about Rabble grabbed our attention and wouldn't let go of us, and we always found ourselves to be playing one more round over and over again. If everybody participates and comes into the game with positive energy and whatever the challenge card says no matter how silly or demeaning it is, I promise you that you and your friends will have an amazing time and the bond that you all have with each other will only grow stronger in the process. Plus, it really is a good option to consider instead of going out and spending money. So stay in with your buddies, have a drink or two, and let the madness of Rabble surround you. You won't regret it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
