What is Cards Against Humanity?
Cards Against Humanity is described by the makers themselves as “a party game for horrible people”.
The card game deals out black cards emblazoned with a question, and players aim to match them with the funniest responses using the answers printed on their white cards.
The person who asked the question from the black card decides whose answer is the funniest, and that player gets to keep the black card. The aim of the game is to collect as many black cards as possible.
