Wanted: Games that make you laugh

I’m in need of some game recommendations. I played a ton of heavier games lately, and while I really enjoy them I feel in need of some lighter, funny or even silly games.
Games that I put in this category and which I like a lot are:
Game of Love (Bachelorette hack of Final Girl)
Behind the Magic
I played both of them quite often and was wondering what other games are out there that will make your belly hurt from laughter :smiley:

InSpectres can get silly, but games like Dragons and Bananas and Dr. Magnethands are two games designed to be silly.

When it comes to humor games, where they are actually humoristic, I always bring up Daughters of Verona.

I’ve never not laughed during a Paranoia session.

Toon was always a silly, light game. Supposedly Teenagers from Outer Space is a good clone of that game.

I’m sensing an Allen Varney shaped pattern…

Paper Tigers: A Game of Political Shenanigans (2013 Game Chef winner, a real forgotten gem)

A lot of the Grant Howitt one-page games start from a funny premise, carry it through some simple and funny mechanics and result in a good time. I guess most people know Honey Heist pretty well, but Nice Marines, Crash Pandas and Jason Statham’s Big Vacation are other good starting points.

Sounds intriguing, but where can i find it? Google didn’t give me anything usefull =(

I got to this GDrive archive from an old Game Chef announcement. I’m not aware of a more primary source, but if anyone’s got one, I’m all ears! I don’t know if the game was updated or formally released after the competition.

I just ran a few sessions of Visigoths vs Mall Goths, and it really hits a sweet spot of absurdity and melodrama that’s just incredibly hilarious to me. We all laughed a lot!

I love the idea of leaning into overt sentimentality as an avenue for the humor (as opposed to random silliness).

I second the Grant Howitt rec! Sometimes I just pair a premisse of one of his games with the Tearable RPG and it’s a blast.
More recently I loved playing Shitty Adventurers and Vampire Block Party, a one page game based on What we do in the shadows.
