Here’s an interesting diversion to all the articles on POKER ….
Playing games has always been a good way to fight boredom. One of the most popular pastimes is playing card games. There are the popular casino card games like poker and blackjack; there are also games test one’s patience and memory like solitaire ; and then there are the games that are popular among hobbyists which are the trading card games.
A very unusual game that has recently devloped in a similar vein as to those described above, is “Cards against Humanity”.
The card game is a multiplayer party game which can either be downloaded and printed for free, or purchased and delivered as a hardcopy. Designed by a group of friends from the USA, this game is considered to be one of the most horrible, but also one of the most brilliant games out there.
Upon purchasing, you get a game in a box filled with 90 black cards and 460 white cards, along with a copy of the game rules and a copy of the alternate rules as well.
How the Game Is Played
The concept for Cards against Humanity is pretty simple. At the beginning of the game, players have in their hands a selection of White Card on which are written a myriad of bizzarre symbols and words ranging from Santa Claus to chainsaw hands and anything else in between. One player is chosen to play as the Card Czar. The Card Czar’s duty is to pick a black card that contains either a statement filled with blanks or a question that needs an answer.
The other players should each picking a response from the white cards they have in an attempt to come up with a funny, (or absurdly horrifying) answer to that statement or question. The Card Czar selects the one he or she likes best, and devotes the black card to the one who came up with the best answer. The black card scores players points.
Cards Against Humanity takes card games to a whole new level. Whether you want to have a good time with friends during a sleepover or simply want to while time away with your family during vacation, this game is sure to keep you amused. Keep in mind however, that some of the statements have the grave potential for being offensive. Even so, the game’s purpose is to entertain and the statements should not be taken seriously.
