Otherfoot may best be described as a “parlor game,” in the grand tradition of Exquisite Corpse, Telephone Pictionary, Celebrity, and other games that only require pen and paper to play. It’s a card game, played with a newly-created homemade deck every time. The game was developed by friends living in Brooklyn and Seattle in the early 2000s, and it has spread by word of mouth to LITERALLY MULTIPLE CONTINENTS since then.
In the early days, Otherfoot fans used to say their game was “like Apples to Apples but better.” After Cards Against Humanity came out, we started saying “it’s like Cards Against Humanity but better.”
