We’ve all been there. Embarrassing slips of the tongue, wardrobe malfunctions, secret (and not-so-secret) workplace romances, accidental emails, bathroom mishaps, copy room shenanigans. Awkward Moment® at Work is the party game that helps you play out those all-too-familiar moments — and show them who’s boss!

Each turn, players try to impress “the Decider” by submitting the best reaction to the awkward moment from their hands of cards.

Awkward Moment at Work is the adult version of our award-winning card game Awkward Moment. While the game’s awkward workplace situations may be unfamiliar to kids and teens, the game is family friendly (contains nothing you wouldn’t see in a PG-13 movie).
