Awkward Family Photos

Crimson Awkward Family Photos game box Awkward Family Photos is a multi-player board game in which players try to correctly match other players' answers or write the roller's favorite answer related to questions about "awkward family photos."  Players have chips and the objective is to place all five of your chips on the game board first or place three chips in a row on the game board.  Each player takes turns flipping a card from a deck of cards of "awkward family photos" and rolling the die.  The roller reads a corresponding question on the game board related to the "awkward family photo" card in play.  Then, all players, other than the roller, anonymously write down their answers to the question.  The player to the right of the roller reads the submitted answers to the questions out loud and the roller 1) chooses their favorite answer to the question and 2) tries to match each answer with each player.  Rollers get to place chips on the board if they correctly match players with their answers and players get to place chips on the board by being chosen the roller's favorite answer.
