“Probably not a game you’ll want to play with children or immediate family, but super fun with friends who appreciate and accept your off-beat sense of humor. Rules are flexible and can be altered with house rules.”

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people – that is what the cover box of the game says. Cards Against Humanity is an awkward and terrible game that players may find cringe-worthy, but in a fun-filled way, which is not like any of the party games available in the market.
The new version of Cards Against Humanity contains100 black cards and 500 white cards for maximum replayability, which has more than 150 new cards compared to the previous version. The new version also contains a booklet of rational game rules and ridiculous alternate rules. The black cards contain questions, and the white cards contain answers.
The rules of the Cards Against Humanity game is pretty straightforward. In every round of the game, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and all players playing in the game answers with their wackiest White Card.
At the beginning of every round, one selected player (The Judge) will choose a Black Card from the stack on which there will be a question or a phrase that requires to be answered. Players are provided with 10 White Cards, and they provide answers to them by selecting the most appropriate White Card to go with the questions from the Black Card. After all, players have selected the best White Card in their hand they turn the cards into The Judge, who will review the White Card and judge the favorite pairing of the White Card with the Black Card.
The Cards Against Humanity is priced at $25 and has received great reviews from Thrillist, The Onion AV Club, Kill Screen Magazine, The Daily Beast, and Mike “Gabe” Krahulik, Penny Arcade.
