Cards Against Humanity

by SeanMac

A madcap adult card game that is a hilarious hit at parties. Everything is in black and white and there are no grey areas.

But it is not for the faint hearted or squeemish. No punches are pulled and if you are a bit sensitive then I suggest that you do not play this game.

The sample answers given later in the article are rather mild so do expect the worst from this game and you won't be disappointed.

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for adults aged 17 and older

The card game for adults that is a bit of fun on party night-outs and makes a great ice breaker too if the atmosphere is too staid. Amazingly, up to 20 players can play at one time.

Cards Against Humanity Game Rules

One player asks a question which is printed on one of the 90 black cards in the pack. There are many more answer cards (460) which are white in color. All the players respond to the black card question with an answer from one of their white cards which they place face down on the table in front of them. 

To start with, each player is given 10 white cards. These white cards are 'ANSWER' cards. The person in charge of the game (Czar) is randomly chosen (it is not important how this is done) and he/she draws one black 'QUESTION' card. The question (or a fill-in-the-blank sentence) is read out to the entire group of players who each respond by placing one of their funniest white cards face down on the playing surface.

The Card Czar changes at every round but they get the opportunity to decide which white card answer was the funniest. The provider of this funny answer gets to keeps the black card which is worth one game point. The person who produced the most amusing white card answer wins points by accumulation several winning black cards. The game is simple and quite good fun and usually lasts an hour. Several versions of the game are played and the rules can be changed to suit any gathering. A black card can be exchanged for 10 new white cards during play in the hope that the new answers will garner more winning black cards.

Up to 20 players? I can see how that could make this a popular party game. :)

Well Jean, it is perhaps not everyone's cup of tea but it is a good icebreaker as you point out. It sure is popular as two expansion packs have now been released.

Hello SeanMac,
I never heard of this game before, it sounds like a lot of fun. I'm sometimes a little shy when I m eet new people, and this seems like a nice ice breaker!

Hello katiem2, thank you for your visit and comments. It is an excellent ice breaker at parties especially when conversion is stilted.

I am fascinated by this game, and I look forward to owning it. :-D

Yes, Tolovaj, the bigger groups are much better. About six or seven is ideal. I appreciate your visit and comment about this card game.

Cards against humanity for sure sound like good fun. I guess it is best to play it in slightly bigger groups. Only four players probably don't give so many funny answers as six, eight or even more, right?
