Print Your own Cards Against Humanity Starter Set

I now own all of the Cards Against Humanity releases (to date), but I'll have to admit I've only had the opportunity to play the game a handful of times. As I look back I probably would have gone ahead and purchased the cards anyway, but considering I could have saved near a hundred dollars I may have simply downloaded and printed out the starter pack from CAH website and been done with it.

You can download the original starter pack for free through a Creative Commons License. You can actually go to the Cards Against Humanity website and download the entire starter set in a .PDF format ; 550 cards (460 White cards and 90 Black cards).

Once you have the download you can then print them out, cut them to size and start playing. Free is cool, but unless you plan to print them to standard letter paper you may find that printing and manufacturing a set on your own isn't really worth the trouble or the expense. There are some other issues with downloading the starter pack that are covered later on this page.

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to to play the game to see if you even like it, before you to dole out the dough. Download the PDF, Grab a ream of white office paper and ready your printer. Once you've printed it all out either take to it with a paper cutting board or good old scissors. It wont matter much if you are a little uneven on your cuts, you're printing a disposal version anyway when you do it this way.

I won't suggest you use the company's time and paper... We'll leave that up to your conscience, but who knows maybe you can talk everyone in to playing at the next office meeting.

Tips For Buying Cards Against Humanity

Tip #1- If your not buying an official deck, be certain to get your starter sets and expansion packs from the same place. Some sets (that are quite nice) are being manufactured by professional printers (or their employees using the bosses equipment in off hours) for sale on e-Bay. There is nothing specifically wrong with the quality of these cards (you decide about the morality), but if you purchase your additional cards elsewhere they may not be identical in size and color.

Tip #2- Trying to print the downloaded version to cardstock is not as easy as it sounds when using a cheap ink jet printer. The inks can smudge and card stock can get bent.

Tip #3- If you don't have a paper cutting board, you're going to have a lot of fun trying to cut all of the cards with scissors <--- (sarcasm ). That's 550 cards (460 White cards and 90 Black cards).

Tip #4- A set of cards that originated from the knuckleheads at Cards Against Humanity are manufactured to the same specs (every time) and all of the expansion packs will blend right in.
