In which the world’s loveliest misanthrope (Krissie, of course) gives you the low-down on THE BEST GAME you’ve never played… They had me at “Against Humanity.”
What is Cards Against Humanity? Basically it’s Apples to Apples, but with all of the cards you wish Apples to Apples had to make it more hilarious. It’s simple to play, with one person reading a black card, with a question on it, most of which are fill-in-the-blank style. And then the other players deciding which of their ten white cards, containing words and phrases, is the funniest answer to the question. The white cards are played face down, shuffled and then read aloud, and the person who played the funniest card wins.
Cards Against Humanity has all of the irreverent, disturbing, perverted, disgusting and generally offensive words and phrases needed for maximum hilarity. So if you like the idea of deciding which would make the best new Happy Meal Toy, Smallpox blankets or Lance Armstrong’s missing testicle, and you don’t mind Googling the word ‘bukkake‘ when one of your friends doesn’t know what it means, you’ll probably like this game. Another great thing about Cards Against Humanity is that you can download if for free from their website. The game only costs a few dollars to print, and then it takes about an hour to cut out all of the little cards, but it’s totally worth the effort. Once you’re done all you need is some beer and a few friends and you can start making awesome combinations, like these:
