Cards Against Humanity: Yes, it’s offensive.

Cards Against Humanity: Yes, it’s offensive.


Cards Against Humanity.  It’s essentially Apples to Apples but dirty, racist, sexist, – it’s an “offend everyone fest” in a box.  It’s one of those games that everyone remembers one instance that was REALLY funny, but honestly it gets old after 1-2 times through the box.  While the game play isn’t new, the draw is the shock-value of the insane things on the cards (probably why they have a ton of expansion packs) and seeing what your mild mannered friends and/grandparents choose to play.  Now I know things about some people that I just cannot unlearn.  Ick.

The classy part of the game (and I’m astounded that I’m saying that) is that they made a special holiday pack and donate the proceeds to Wikimedia – all $70,066.27.  You can read all about it HERE.

    Interesting concept to use a “dummy stack.” The first time we played Apples to Apples it was with some people that had a bad sense of humor and also thought Los Lobos sang “Insane in the Brain.”

    I like edgy, clever, topical, off-color humor. I sat in on a round of this. Questions like “What is the best way to get laid?” Canned answers like “ejaculating in a pool of children’s tears.” Yuk, yuk. It didn’t strike me as funny or clever or worth my time. But most people were howling with laughter, at least some, I would say to cover their discomfort. Caveat Emptor.

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
