I never thought there is a game for horrible people. I don’t even know what ‘horrible people’ play for any fun games. Is there such a game as horrible people having fun with a card game? It sounds oxymoron but I found one call ‘Cards Against Humanity’. I wouldn’t describe the game as the creator calls it “a party game for horrible people” but the title is too cleaver to ignore by many game players.Cards Against Humanity is a horrible version of Apples to Apples. I don’t mean it as a negative description of the game. It’s wackily funny, hilarious, and for the sick-minded people. It’s for fun games for insane people. If your circle of friends who have thick skin and love the belly laughing fun games, this is the perfect game for you. Even the ‘politically correct’ people would enjoy the game. It’s made for laugh.
Origin of the game
According to the Wikipedia about the history of the Cards Against Humanity as follow:
“Cards Against Humanity was created by a group of Highland Park High School alumni as a party game for a New Year’s Eve celebration. Cards Against Humanity was financed through the website Kickstarter, exceeding its funding goal by nearly 300% by the project’s end on January 30, 2011. Co-creator Ben Hantoot stated in an interview with Dice Hate Me that the game was developed by “8 of us who are the core writer-creators, 5 or 6 additional ‘part time’ developers” and “dozens of friends and acquaintances who have played the game”.
The first appearance of the game was in October 2011 at the annual IndieCade Games Festival in Culver City under the “Big Games” area. This was the first expansion and it contained 112 cards. However, the game wasn’t in the market until November 2011 and it was sold out within three days as soon as it released. The updated game was almost sold out immediately as well when it released on March 15, 2012 and the second expansion was released in August 2012.
How to play this Fun Games?
The rules are very simple and easy. There are two different color cards; black and white. Black cards are used to set up the game with a short sentence. For example, “Instead of coal, Santa now gives the bad children [blank].” And, white cards are used for filling the [blank] on the black card such as “a bleached asshole” etc. It sounds vile phrases but they are hilarious and crude at the same time.
In comparison to Apples to Apples, the Cards Against Humanity is for adults particularly for sick-minded individuals vs. Apples to Apples is for the whole family.
Cards Against Humanity can take a person out of the box from word definitions into humor and creativity. It doesn’t require mental calculation nor psychology of other people’s mind. There is no correct answers needed. If you want to make it more fun for the game, you can create your own phrases on the card according to personality of the people in the game. This is certainly one of the best fun games for fun with friends, best party games, and awesome to have around.
