Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity Card Game

If you have a dark sense of humour, then Cards Against Humanity is for you. The catch phrase ‘A party game for horrible people’ is not to be taken lightly.
Liam bought this game some months ago from America, to have more recently found out that there is also a UK edition (so naturally, he bought that too). The more cards you have the better though, and although some of the American references are lost on us, the majority of the cards make sense and incur a lorra laughs. 

So how does it work? Basically, there are a selection of black cards, and a larger selection of white ones. The black cards are either questions, or fill in the blank phrases. The white cards are for answering the questions, or filling in the blanks. It’s one of the easiest games ever to play.

The game starts with each player having 10 white cards each. Each player takes a turn to read a black card out, and the rest have to find their funniest card to answer the question, or fill in the blank. Some fill in the blank cards require more than one card each.

The cards are then shuffled (with the multiple card answers, the 2/3 cards are still kept together though) – the shuffling just makes the responses anonymous. The player who read out the black card then reads out the answers to the group, and chooses the funniest one. That player scores a point, and gets to keep the black card as a record of the point they scored. During each turn, the players draw back up to 10 white cards, and the game continues.

It seems to me that the length of the game is up to the players. Of course the one with the most points wins.

It’s honestly the funniest game I’ve ever played. You really do have to leave taste at the door though. I won’t pick out any particular response cards, as they can get pretty offensive and I definitely accept that not everyone is quite as evil as me!

The box recommends that players are a minimum of 17 years old so definitely don’t pick this one up for a Christmas family gathering!
