Why You Need to Buy Cards Against Humanity NOW!

Updated on September 13, 2015

A Brief Overview

Cards Against Humanity, for those of you that don't know, is a simple card game for 4 to 20+ players. However, while it is a game, it's tag line is "A party game for horrible people." And even though it advertises as being for ages 17 and up, there are some cards that are unsuitable for any age!

If you are familiar with Apples to Apples, than you basically know how to play. The players (with the exception of the judge) must all answer the same question (or fill in the blanks) posed by the judge. They must use one of 10 cards that they have drawn from the White pile (the answer cards). These answer cards are then passed to the judge, who decides which answer is the best and awards a point to the person that submitted the winning card.

The game is the #1 seller in Amazon Toys and has almost 25,000 reviews and an average score of 4.9 out of 5.

What does this tell you:

  • the makers of this game have done something very, very right; and
  • there are a lot of people out there that really, really like this horrific game.

By horrific, I mean wonderful, divisive, hilarious, gut-wrenching and completely uncomfortable.

The game comes with 55 cards, printed on playing cards, all packaged in a tidy little box.

How to Play

The game is side-splittingly funny. Even the Rules are infused with humor. Here is just a segment of them:

Basic Rules

  • To start the game, each player draws ten White Cards.
  • The person who most recently pooped begins as the Card Czar and plays a Black Card. The Card Czar reads the question or fill-in-the-blank phrase on the Black Card out loud.
  • Everyone else answers the questions or fills in the blank by passing one White Card, facedown, to the Card Czar.
  • The Card Czar shuffles all of the answers and shares each card combination with the group. For full effect, the Card Czar should usually re-read the Black Card before presenting each answer. The Card Czar then picks the funniest play, and whoever submitted it gets one Awesome Point.
  • After the round, a new player becomes the Card Czar and everyone draws back up to ten White Cards.

Cards Against Humanity Ratings


Snippets from the Best Reviews

"If you aren't a horrible person already, you will soon be."

"So much fun, this game works so well with the type of humor my social circle enjoys. Also, we are probably going to hell."

"A bad, bad game for bad, bad people......This game will release that inner demon"

"This made me and my family way more evil. I love it!"

"So much fun it should be illegal!"

"The Card Game as F*_ked Up as You Are"

"Also, it is not suggested that you play this game with conservative parents or folks who don't get out too much. Nothing slows down a game like trying to explain smegma or "the taint."

"I've never played Apples to Apples, but I've heard that it's like that, but for a-holes."

"Vile, Putrid, Awful, Wrong, yet so right and an incredible time"

"We are literally sore the next morning from laughing so hard. It's like an involuntary ab workout. "

"This game has taught me the worst word ever and that is smegma."

"Basically, this is Apples-To-Apples' sick twisted cousin who obviously has a lot more fun in life."


Don't Be a Victim!

So, you know you need this game. You know you want to take it to the next party you attend. A lot of those gatherings happen around the holidays. Not only that, but it would make a great Christmas present for your stuffy in-laws or as a White Elephant present. I know what you're thinking, "I'll just order it closer to the Holidays." Normally, that would be a good idea.

Here’s the problem though:

This game sells out weeks before Christmas, and then unscrupulous scrooges sell it for 10x it’s actual cost. Normally the game is $25, but it sells on Amazon for upwards of $250 in the weeks before Christmas. That is why you have to get yours now!

Whether you buy it for yourself, for beloved family or hated friends, or for the new next door neighbor as a twisted house warming gift, you NEED to buy this game. Heck, by 10 of them, sell the other 9 around Christmas time and go for a nice vacation with the extra profit you will make. There is no shame in capitalism, thankfully I got my (1) game well before they ran out and 3rd party sellers started making a killing.
