Card Against Humanity is Wonderfully Twisted!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

cards-against-humanityI don’t know about all of you, but I was raised on card games as a kid and still enjoy them to this day.  You don’t always have to go out to have a good time; some nights it’s just as good to get a few friends together and break out a deck of cards.  In the past few years I’ve found some specialty card games that really bring the party to the next level from your average 52-card deck.  If you’re looking for a fun night at home there are a lot of great games out there, but if you have a sense of humor as twisted as mine, then I think it’s time you checked out Cards Against Humanity.

I’m of the opinion that the easiest way to learn a game is while playing it.  Reading the rules first can take so long.  But with Cards Against Humanity there’re really only two rules: match your best white card(s) with the black card in play and don’t take it too seriously.  If you’re thinking “that sounds a lot like Apples to Apples,” you’re absolutely right.  The basic game play is very similar between the two except in CAH you can be asked to match up to three white cards to a single black card.  But where Apples to Apples is a family friendly game that can be filled with innuendo by our sick minds, Cards Against Humanity skips right over innuendo to the punch lines we’re all thinking but some of us are too polite to say out loud.

0d50c9b5094f94c145726fc917c66385_largeI first discovered this CAH through a game night hosted by friend of mine.  It was instant love, but when I asked where to get it I found out there are only two ways to get a deck, well three if you’re willing to steal from your friend that beat you to the checkout.  But grand theft card games aside, the game is available for $25 on Amazon or for free download from the official website.  The game was so popular when it first launched that it sold out faster than they could print it so the creators were awesome enough to make a PDF of the game that you can print yourself.  They even give recommended instructions in the PDF of what paper to print on for the best results.

If you’re like me and you want to support the game’s creators by paying the $25 dollars or you’re just too lazy for a DIY project right now, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.  CAH has just been restocked on Amazon, and as an added bonus for those who have known the game for a while and can’t get enough, they partnered the restocking with the launch of their third Cards Against Humanity Expansion Pack.  Each expansion pack is also available on Amazon for $10. There is no PDF available for the expansion packs but you can’t expect them to give it all way for free, can you?

745112If you end up falling in love with the game and Expansion Packs 1, 2, and 3 aren’t enough for you, each pack comes with a few extra blank cards.  This is perfect for customizing the game to your friends’ inside jokes.  Plus if you’re the type of person that likes to share, there is a Cards Against Humanity Tumblr that is covered with other people’s funniest card combinations and thoughts about the game.  Start sharing and find others that share your passion for this twisted game.  Whether you buy the cards while they’re in stock (which won’t be long with their track record) or you make your own deck with their free printable PDF, I hope that you’ll love this game like I do.
