Cards Against Humanity Game Review

Updated on February 13, 2015

One Very Funny but Vulgar Game

I have noticed that Cards Against Humanity has become a popular game. I am not sure why but I wanted to find out. Something has to be great about the game. It only comes in a black cardboard box with the title on the top. Nothing great to see there but there has to be something fabulous about the game.

There are 550 cards included in every box. 460 white and 90 black, if you don't have that amount you should try to return it. This game plays up to 6 players or so the website suggests.

This game so far sounds as if a group of people could play it. Maybe, this will be good for an afternoon or evening of fun gaming.

So, I will take a better look at the box. It suggests 4 to 20+ people can play the game. The people playing must be older then 17 years old.

Hum... already this sounds like an adult game. No kids allowed when playing this game. There is only black and white cards, so this might not interest a child, anyway. All the cards are packed in pretty tight, too. The instructions are on top of them. A game of 52-pick-up would not be advised, if you want to keep your friends.

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.

Playing the Game

Here is how to play:

The black cards have questions.

The white cards have answers.

In order to start, everyone must pick 10 white cards from the deck. Then, only one picks a black card from the deck. The Black card is read and laid down so that others can look at it.

The black card will have a sentence on it that is missing a word. The white cards have words on them that might fit.

Everyone except the person that picked the black card puts a card on the table facing down. This sounds a lot like Apples to Apples. It has the same rules. However, these cards are a little more vulgar on the answer side. 17 plus age, means adult.

The white cards that were laid down were then shuffled by the person that picked the black card. The person picks the card that sounds like it will be the funnest card. The person that laid down that white card that was picked wins.

The next person, picks a black card. Everyone makes sure they have 10 cards and the new round begins.

The winner has to win 10 times during the game.

The Card Game

Some of the cards will tell you to pick two cards. So, to do this pick two of your white cards. Make sure they stay together by using a paper clip or rubber band. The paper clips and/or rubber bands are not included in the game box.

YOu can also bet points on if you win or lose. Example, you have 8 points. You want to win, so you bet 2 points to win. You win. You get 2 points, which means you have 10 and have won the game. To keep the game longer you might let only the players bet one point at a time.

YOu can also make a haiku for the last part of the game with the white cards. A haiku is a three line poem. Five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line.

You can add rules like: say you are losing or don't like your cards. You have won once but you are not winning any more. You can give your win back and replace all or some of your white cards. This is perfectly legal game play.

You can also play with only the cards and try to figure out what they are or if you have done such a thing on that card.

Cards Against Humanity

This game is appropriate for children.

This game seems to have a large fallowing so it is worth a try. Don't pay over 25 dollars for the first edition to this game.


I think the game is like Apples to Apples. Yes, Apples to Apples can get strange to if you play it right.

What do you think of the game?
