Cards Against Humanity Online Review

A card game to play with close friends

Cards Against Humanity is a card game that is somewhat... risque, rude and at times downright disgusting. And that is why we love it so. In essence this card game is very, very simple and seems to be one of those things where you say "Why didn't I think of that?". Created by a small group of American High School kids it takes the form not dissimilar to the game Apples to Apples, in Cards Against Humanity a group of players each draw 10 cards and then proceed to complete a sentence with one of those ten against a main black card which has also been drawn.

So, for example the main black card or Card Czar might say: "Noel Edmonds can't go to the office party this year because..." and a player might have white cards in their hand that say things such as: "there are too many cats in the Belgium capital." or "All things must cease". The main difference to these examples is that the sentence beginnings and endings of Cards Against Humanity are eye wateringly rude, to the point of obscenity and then past it.

There are things in here about your parents having 'special hugs', Donald Trump's libido, potentially general racism, text around subjects like unprotected sex, dying and so on. Now, taken on their own a white or black card is fairly innocent, but when put together they are a devestating combination of obscen wit and an insight into the mind of the player that selected them.
