Game Review | Cards Against Humanity

Hi, One of my monthly goals is to write a game review, so here it is. I wasn't sure which game to review so I decided to pick an easy one to start with. So this technically isn't a board game but it's super entertaining and more practical to take to a party. This game has a suggested age of 17+ due to the crude and explicit nature of some of the cards.

Cards Against Humanity - A party game for horrible people
Unlike most of the games you've played before,
Cards Against Humanity is as awkward as you and your friends.

  • One deck of white phrase cards
  • One deck of black question cards

Aim Of the Game
  • To be the funniest and win the most rounds, how you do that totally depends on who you're playing with.

Set Up
  • A multiple player game which can be enjoyed with both a small and large group of people, the box states 4-20 players.
  • The length of the game is set by the target number of winning answers, the less cards required to win the shorter the game should last.
  • Each player is dealt ten white phrase cards.
  • The black questions cards are put face down in a pile accessible to all players.

    How to Play
    • At the start of a round one player selects a black statement card and reads it to the other players.
    • The required number of phrase cards are then anomalously handed in by all players not including the question reader (Sometimes two cards are required to answer).
    • The funniest/crudest thing to complete the question card wins, down to the taste and humor of the reader of the black question card.
    • The winner is awarded an awesome point, this needs to be documented (I normally just keep the question card for the round won).
    • All players who used white phrase cards replenish their deck back to ten cards.
    • The next round starts with a new question reader.
    • This continues until someone wins enough rounds equal to the agreed finish target.

    Re-reading the instructions I found that there are a few twists on the basic game including cashing in awesome points to better your chances of winning later rounds. As the box states this is a cringe worthy game depending on who you play along with, it's maybe not one to play with your parents but that totally depends how twisted their minds are. It's a really simple game to play and one which can be a great ice breaker. I think it's funny to see just how far people will go with their card combinations or just how well some card work together.

      2. I love Cards Against Humanity! My friends and I went the cheap route and copied the PDF version onto pieces of cue card rather than buy the game itself. We ended up creating a few of our own, as well! Many weekends were spent playing :)


        1. I would have done this had I known it was possible. Making your own cards is such a good idea. Thanks for reading. =^-^=

      3. I never played it, but I always wanted to as it seems like so much fun! I will note it down as a Christmas gift idea ;)

        1. It'll be worth the wait, you'll laugh so hard from seeing people you think are innocent come out with the darkest combos. =^-^=

      4. Oh my god, I absolutely love this game! Such a fun way to spend time with your friends. I've played with my family, which was both awkward and utterly hilarious!
