Latinos Are Laughing-Crying Playing This Tragos Drinking Card Game

Founded earlier this year, this card game was created by a Carolina Acosta from Queens who wanted to create a Latino card game designed to make us laugh at ourselves.

“Tragos was born out of an appreciation I gained after visiting South America for the first time. I fell in love with my culture again after having almost forgotten what it was to be a Latina.” During her trip to South America, Carolina became friends with John Lim and they bonded over their respective cultures. John then suggested the idea of creating a cultural drinking game and they started brainstorming until this brought this idea to life.

The rules to the game is simple: you pick a card from the deck and you or your friends drink when the card tells you to. Your party will be lit in no time!

This is Tragos:

Made with pure Latino pride, Tragos is the drinking card game that your mom will not approve. Each box holds 110 cards, designed with unique references that only Latinos will understand.

All you need to get this party game started is that precious deck, some friends, and your trago of choice. Friends and drinks not included.

There are six different types of cards.

You might pick up an “if” card, as in “If you still live with you still live with your mom, take 3 sips.” You might pick up a “categories” card, which means you go in a circle around the group naming things that fit the category (i.e. cositas your mom used to hit you with) without repeating. The person who waits longer than 5 seconds to respond is the “loser” and has to take X many sips.

For Latinos, Tragos is just a fun way to relive and laugh at the cringy experiences of our childhood, but anyone can play.

The founder of the game is from Queens, NY, but the Latinx minds that have helped make Tragos possible include cultures from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Mexico.

Consider Tragos the social experiment you needed to find out who you can call the next time your boss calls you “fiery.”

Trust that Tragos is effectively building a support group for you post-game. But for now, Tragos is all about getting borracho and screaming, “Omg, me!” with your friends. Plus, being Latino is forever finding out that that weird thing you do (read: unable to leave a single crumb on your plate) is actually something that we all relate to.

Depending on your age and how much you can rage, Tragos is perfect for pre-gaming, a good ice breaker for a low-key Taco Tuesday, or the best way to spend your Friday night in.

There are no instructions included in the game which means you can actually turn your brain off at the end of the day and let loose. Call it a game of minimalism — all you need is what you already have: friends, alcohol and this made-by-Latinos-for-Latinos drinking game.

If alcohol isn’t your thing, you can swap tragos for a mordida and take a bit of your favorite snack every time the card says to drink.

Hint, hint: win all the hostess with the mostess points by having maduros and tostones on hand. Swapping drinks for your favorite dish is a great way to fill your tummy while getting to know your friends and family a bit better and laughing at your experiences.

The very first folks who have played Tragos say it’s “funny as hell” and a great reminder that “Latinidad is something to celebrate.”

In an Instagram post, fan @veronicakitty_ wrote “Tragos is one of the many things in my life that remind me that my Latinidad is something to celebrate and a reminder that our culture is rich & diverse asf. And because the people behind the making of this card game are genuine, fun people marinated in sazón.” We love that!

“Tragos” keeps selling out, so get yours while they last!

Promise, your next primo party will be funny as hell when you whip out this deck and you expose which primo is the chismoso. Really, Tragos is improving public safety.

Take your family party to the next level by purchasing your own game of Tragos here. 

The game is currently on sale for $19.99, and, well, you know the stereotype. Latinos love a sale.

The Tragos game is available for pre-sale in the mitú Shop, so hurry up and buy yours before we sell out — again.

Missouri Woman Seen Holding Pelosi Sign Faces First Judge In Series Of Court Dates For Federal Charges

Update January 21, 2021

A Missouri woman named Emily Hernandez had a court hearing in St. Louis after her involvement in the Capitol riots. Hernandez, 21, is facing several federal charges after participating in the deadly Capitol riot.

Emily Hernandez is facing the music after storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

According to KSDK, Hernandez, who is from Sullivan, Missouri, has been released without bond after her first hearing in St. Louis. She has been ordered to stay in the Eastern District of Missouri until her next court date in Washington. Part of the terms of her release is that she is not allowed to travel to Washington other than for her court date.

During the hearing, she was recorded saying, “I’m sorry, I’m nervous.”

Hernandez is facing the following federal charges: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business, steal, sell, convey or dispose of anything of value in the United States, disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings, parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol buildings.

Original: After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”
