The game where the more disgusting and outrageous you are the better your chances at winning.
It is the evil twin brother of Apples to Apples. Like A2A it is what you make of it. The prompt cards and subject cards are tools to be used to joke and make fun with your friends. You play to the strengths (or weaknesses) of your nearest and dearest since the outcome is based on each judge’s personal opinion. Unlike A2A, it is neither wholesome or wholly iconical. The subject cards in this case are displeasing, disgruntling and devious. On the bright side you can learn a lot in this game, though you will need to decide for yourself if it was anything you actually wanted to learn. Player beware, there are certain things you can’t unlearn. We discovered there was plenty we would have preferred to stay in the dark about. Not surprising the most …upsetting content was nothing new to the male players in the game.
Quote from the makers: “Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.”
We had many pauses to answer questions or google terms so we, the ladies, could play better. The game definitely sparked many conversations about illicit topics. Even with the shock and disgust it made for a fun evening. The only downside was the boys winning more than the girls over all.
