Cards Against Humanity is a tremendously popular card game that became a global sensation after debuting on the social fundraising website Kickstarter. Cards Against Humanity is a fun game, and people either adore the game or despise it altogether. It is one of those games where you must keep an open mind and be prepared to be offended. If you are easily offended, you should probably skip the game entirely.
However, fans of the game do find it can get a little repetitive after a few games with different people. There is only so many times you can laugh at ‘Blood Farts’ before it gets old.
The beauty of Cards Against Humanity is that it has opened the doors for many other card games that can be just as fun to play. So, have you been missing out on some fun and laughter with your friends since the release of Cards Against Humanity? Well, never fear, because I’ve got some recommendations for some great alternatives to the popular game. Whether you’re looking for something a little more risqué or just want to play a traditional game of cards, these are sure to provide plenty of entertainment. So, throw on some music, crack out a drink, and throw one of these games on the table and get rowdy!
Love Cards Against Humanity, but find yourself playing the same cards over and over again even with the official expansions? Crabs Adjust Humidity is a terrible little third-party, unofficial, illegal expansion card set that mixes in with the original game and provides 112 morally dubious new cards to play. If you don’t have the original game, don’t buy this: it’s useless without it.
Exploding Kittens was created after one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns in history. From the warped mind of Matthew Inman, the guys behind The Oatmeal. (you should check out his site). Matthew wasn’t alone when building this game, but those of you familiar with his art work will instantly recognize he art across these cards. The game itself is pretty simple, consider it a kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game. Simple.
Be sure to check the NSFW version too. If you want, you can combine both decks into one.
Drunk, Stoned or Stupid is simple. Almost too simple. Invite you friends over, draw cards. Each round a card is drawn and the group decides who in the group would be most likely to…
- CALL DIBS ON PEOPLE AT PARTIES
- USE DADDY’S CREDIT CARD
- SHAME PEOPLE FOR GOING TO BED
- WATCH “PLANET EARTH” FOR 5 HOURS
- TRASH TALK AT THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS
First person to 7 cards is the winner. Or the loser. Probably the loser.
Bad People is bad. This game can be the creator of issues with your friendship group. Basically, the dealer flips a card and everyone votes who they think best matches the card. If your suggestion matches the dealer suggestion, then you win. The problem is with the cards. For example, the dealer may draw a card about who would be the cheapest prostitute. My partner got quite upset by this when a friend selected her. She thought I would make less money as a hooker. I was disgusted by that comment. I would make SO much money as a prostitute.
Mobscenity is another card game that was successful on Kickstarter. And, like most of these games, it is pretty simple to play. Every round, the current master plays two cards with innocent words (like donkey, clam, crack, punch, chocolate, banana, beaver, cream, spank, blood, swallow, angry, milk, spread, fist, etc.) from their hand and creates a phrase, like “The Angry Beaver” or “The Thrashing Dragon.” The other players then write a definition of the phrase and use it in a sentence. The master picks their favorite and the winning player gets a point.
I think you probably have an idea on what you can expect with the rest of this article, so to make this quick and painless for you, here is the rest of this collection. I’m sure you will find something to replace your Cards Against Humanity game when friends come over!
