Cards Against Humanity is a new and hilarious game of quick wits and quicker humour – but it is most certainly not suitable for children, and in fact is simply not suitable for everyone! Read more in our full Cards Against Humanity review!
If you like your humour filthy and are not easily offended, then you will enjoy a few rounds of this tongue-in-cheek card game. Originally hailing from America, advertised as “created by eight fat Yanks”, this game has really taken off in the UK. It has gained notoriety for the sheer offensiveness of some of the cards, but that’s what makes the game so unique!
Immensely Fun Party Game
Cards Against Humanity is a very portable game, and requires no more space to play than a place for everyone to sit. It would be most suitable for a raucous group of friends at a party, and the optimum number of people is between 4 and about 10. The manufacturers suggest a 17+ age limit on the game, and we would be inclined to agree!
To begin play, each player receives a hand of 10 white cards, which is replenished from a pile after a card is played so a hand of 10 is maintained. Then it is decided who will play first – the official Cards Against Humanity rule is who last had a poo – and that person draws a black card and asks the question on it.
Once the question has been asked, each player decides which of their hand gives the funniest answer, and passes it to the person who asked the question. That player decides which is the best answer, that person gets an “Awesome Point”, and the next person around draws a question. Play continues until one player wins by getting a set amount of “Awesome Points” – this can take up to a few hours depending on the amount of players.
In the box you get 460 white Answer Cards and 90 black Question Cards along with a set of rules and a set of alternate rules. Expansion packs are available, but it should be noted that the expansion packs are for the American version of the game so some of the references may not be appropriate to the UK.
Cards Against Humanity Review Conclusion
The bottom line regarding this game is…if you think you might be offended by it, don’t play it! With references to Auschwitz, Madeline McCann, corpses, drugs, and many others, it takes a certain mind-set to play.
However, if you have a group of people that are of this mind-set, you are guaranteed endless laughter with the Cards Against Humanity board game. It’s a brilliant party game for a group of people with a similar sense of humour, and as there are plenty of cards supplied, you will get a different set of questions each time you play.
