How about playing a card game at your next get together that makes people feel uncomfortable and leaves everyone feeling embarrassed? Well that is exactly what happens when you get out Cards Against Humanity. Highlighted by satire and sarcasm, Cards Against Humanity has revolutionized the basic premise of card games. This isn’t your grandmother’s Go Fish!
Cards Against Humanity was created by some of the alumni of the Highland Park High School who were looking for a unique game to play as a group during the upcoming New Year’s Eve party. The project exploded after it was financed for release by the website Kickstarter. The game is formatted for ages 17 and older due to the nature of the content. Set up for the game takes only 1 to 2 minutes, while a typical game can last on average for 60 minutes. Encourage social skills and get your party guests in the groove with this exciting new card game.
Easy to handle, this game requires no silly game pieces or fake paper money. You don’t need to roll any dice or flip any time keeping sand-filled bottles. All you need are the cards and a sense of humor. Each game set includes 550 professionally printed premium playing cards, which are divided into 460 white cards and 90 black cards. The game is played by a player asking a question that comes from a black card. The question is answered by the rest of the players using the white cards. Anywhere from four to 20 or more people can participate in this never ending party game.
The Card Czar is the person who is reading a question card. After the Card Czar asks a question, everyone submits an answer via a selected white card from their set of 10 white cards in hand. The Card Czar reads all of the answers out loud as humorously as possible, and then chooses their favorite. The person who had the favorite answer gets an Awesome Point and the black card containing the question. Players take turns being the Card Czar and continue until all of the cards have been used, or until a preset number of black cards are awarded by a single player. While the game rules come with the set of playing cards, you are also provided with an alternative set of rules to extend the play of the game.
