use ridiculous objects to get

out of absurd situations!

329 Resource cards

8 additional blank Resource cards (to make your own!)

89 Situation cards

What people Are Saying...

"Wing It is a kick back, relax, and enjoy activity. Most of our games didn't didn't finish up when someone won “X” number of situation cards, they ended when we couldn't sit up straight from laughing so hard."

- Wade Monnig, There Will Be Games


How to Play

The 5 Step Summary:

#1. To start off each round, all players draw a hand of five Resource cards.


#2.  One player is the Judge for each round. They draw a Situation card and read it aloud.


#3. Everyone takes a moment to think. Then each player takes turns telling their story of how they plan to use three of the five Resources in their hand to resolve the situation.

#4. The Judge chooses a winner and awards them with the Situation card. 


#5. Everyone replenishes their hand, a new player becomes the Judge, and the next round begins!

Some of our favorite Situation Cards:

You are hosting a picnic for a chihuahua enthusiast club, when suddenly a pack of hungry falcons takes notice of your party and begins making dives for the dogs.

You are the daughter of the governor of a British trading port. Late one night while returning from a party, you are snatched from your carriage by scoundrels and taken to their pirate ship in the harbor. Now they are holding you for ransom deep in the ship’s hold.

You are a burglar, and you have just broken through the window of a grand Victorian mansion, only to find it occupied by your ex-significant other cooking up a tasty dinner. 

You're babysitting on a houseboat in a lagoon in Florida. While the baby is sleeping inside and you're tanning on the deck, an alligator crawls on deck and then hits the water with your purse in her mouth. You're locked out with the baby asleep inside!
