Game of the Week: CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY

because I feel like swearing right now

Cards Against Humanity at Board Game Geek

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for four or more people. One person is designated the Card Czar, and turns over a black card that has a fill-in-the-blank phrase. The players all have white answer cards, and must choose a card that will complete that blank, aiming for the funniest response. They pass their chosen card face-down to the Card Czar, who then examines the answers and chooses which one she thinks is best. The winner gets the black card to represent one Awesome Point. Play then continues with the next player taking over as Card Czar, and the game continues until everyone decides to quit, at which point whoever with the most Awesome Points wins.

Sounds a lot like Apples to Apples, right? The difference is that Cards Against Humanity is rude, crude, and offensive. Many of the cards revolve around adult humor.

I love playing this game with my aunt. I think one of my favorite combinations was: Why am I so sore? Teaching a robot to love.

Our house rules include:

If a card is not funny, discard it and draw a replacement.
If a card is the wrong kind of horrible, let the game's owner know. It will be pulled from the game and a tally mark put on the front (if it's not chucked outright). Cards that are too frequently challenged can be permanently retired from the deck.
If you don't know, or don't want to admit to knowing, what a card means, you can discard it and draw a replacement. Alternately, your nibling who lives on the internet can define it for those present.

Oopps. That anonymous comment was me. I didn't notice that I was logged out.
