I’d be really surprised if most of you hadn’t already heard about this game but just in case you live under a rock or have non-game loving friend; here is the inside info. The party game Cards Against Humanity is exclusively sold on Amazon in the U.S. (plug for my employer) and is basically just like Apples to Apples but dirtier.  How dirty? Well, let’s just say you wouldn’t want to play with your mom or any seemingly non-sexual member of your family or friend base.  Although I’d love to give you some rated-R examples, I’m pretty sure I’d get in trouble with my editor. Instead, let me introduce you to some videos of people playing the game.

This one is my favorite – these nerds are drinking and playing Cards Against Humanity and it just gets funnier as the video progresses. Or you can watch this one with Seth Rogan.

Anyway, I can vouch that this game is fun in a small party setting or a larger party setting.  I played the first time with a group of approximately 8 people with a reasonable ratio of men to women and most people didn’t know me. I learned a lot about those people I didn’t know well in a very short period of time. There was tons of laughter and really inappropriate jokes being made which is just the way I like it. Turns out I have a really sick sense of humor which serves me well with this game. So be prepared to put your unrated mind on display when you play and you could end up winning!  Oh, I almost forgot; this game comes with expansion packs for bigger, blacker…humor.

If you’re ready to order it as a holiday gift for your perverted friend and/or you just really want it for you next dinner party. Order it here on Amazon.
