If you are sensitive to human rights, racism, sexism or want your friends and family to continue talking to you then this card game is not for you.
Cards Against Hummanity labels itself as, and I quote, "the card game for horrible people" and it's probably not wrong, though it is at least simple to play. There are two piles of cards, black and white. Each player has a handful of the white cards which are a random assortment of potential answers to the black cards which are a diverse amount of questions. Each turn one player reads a question out, everyone else chooses the answer they think is funniest and put it face down in a pile keeping it a secret, once all cards are handed in, the person who asked the question reads out the answers and chooses his or her favorite, that person then gets a point.
It's the answers and potential combinations that can lead to hilarious and sometimes cringeworthy results and they're not even always politically incorrect, sometimes all humour is, is the truth. There are often tears of laughter around the table with this easy to play gem.
It's not all perfect though as once you have played it quite a few times the surprises as you know the card decks are less and less but there are currently five expansions available adding new questions as well as answers at a reasonably cheap price that freshen the game up fairly easily.
This game certainly isn't for everyone, but if you have the right group of friends with a reasonably open mind to a certain level of humour then this is an easy game for anyone to learn that you can slam down almost anywhere and normally brings tears of laughter.
Recommended, for certain people.
+ Easy game to learn. + Good game even for non gamers. + Can make people wet themselves with laughter. + Several cheap expansions available to add life to the game.
- Loses it's impact once you've played a few games. - Requires a certain type of humour, may offend some people...
This just might be the best early birthday/Christmas present yet. Played this during school with 7 people so far, and we had a really good laugh. Overall, an easily fun game as long as the people you play with aren't easily offended. 5/5
