ITEM OF THE DAYItem Of The Day: Cards Against HumanityAndrea Greb

More parties need to have games.  It gives people who don’t know anyone else at the party something to do besides awkwardly standing around, sipping a drink and checking their phone for pretend text messages.  Nothing unites a group of possible strangers like a good game and there are so many to choose from.  There’s the old standards: Charades, Pictionary, Taboo.  There’s newer upstarts like Cranium and Apples to Apples.

Now, if you’ve ever played Apples to Apples and thought “Gee, this game is great, but I just wish it were more offensive,” then I have the game for you.  It’s called Cards Against Humanity, and it’s pretty amazing.  It also passed the true test of a good party game – I played it with five complete strangers and still laughed as much as I had in weeks.  Conceptually, it’s pretty similar to Apples to Apples: one player draws a main card and all the other players submit the card of theirs that they think is the best/funniest fit, and a winning card is picked.  The difference is that these cards are a little more…risque than your conventional Apples to Apples fare.  This is not a game you should play with your parents, but it is a game you should play as soon as possible.

The best part?  You can get the game for free here (though there will be some printing and cutting or a trip to some sort of office store involved).  If you’re too lazy for that, it’s also available on Amazon.

  3. I LOVE THIS GAME! I recently discovered it from a few of my gays, and it’s amazing. That’s risky of you to play with strangers, but I commend your for your bravery.
