For the past few weeks, I’ve been anxious to share the wonder of Cards Against Humanity with TFM readers, but continue to stumble when trying to sum up such an amazingly awful game and still keep it audience-appropriate. So before you read further ask yourself this:
- Am I a sick and twisted person?
- Am I enlightened enough to find humor in dead baby jokes? Racist jokes? Religioius jokes?
Yes? Well then not only do you have lots in common with TFM, but you also just might enjoy the debauchery that is Cards Against Humanity.
Proclaimed as “A party game for horrible people,” CAH is just that. Similar to the popular game Apples to Apples, where players take turn picking cards from their hands that best answer the scenario card presented by the “Card Czar.” The best/most appropriate/most hilarious card is then chosen as the winner of the round. Simple enough, right? Add to this the fact that the answer cards range from normal to overtly offensive and you’ve got yourself a party!
ISAMUDYSON and I have played through the entire deck several times now and the laughs never cease. Add in some the of awkward and hilarious House Rules (Rando Cardrissian anyone?) and CAH will provide you with endless hours of entertainment.
I feel it’s only my duty to again emphasize that this game isn’t for everyone, but if you’re like me and get a laugh out of “Grandmas and Gloryholes,” then you should probably stop reading and order your copy now.
Cards Against Humanity is available (although sells out quickly) on Amazon for $25.00 and the first expansion pack is reasonably priced at just $10.00. Need more convincing? Check out http://www.cardsagainsthumanity.com for more info and for the chance to submit your own CAH suggestions.
And don’t forget to pause and enjoy their wonderful Christmas Poem. It just about sums it up perfectly.
