Cards Against Humanity was produced by a group of eight Highland Park High School alumni, some of which include Ben Hantoot and Max Temkin. It was heavily influenced by the popular Apples to Apples card game, with the original name going to be Cardenfreud which involved a group of players writing out the most abstract and, often, humorous responses to the topic question. However, the name was changed to what we know today.
How to play:
Gameplay is very simple. To start out each player draws ten white cards. According to the rule book provided with the game, the person who most recently “pooped” begins as the “Card Czar”. After this has been determined the Czar places a black card, face up and reads aloud. Everyone who is not the card czar then plays the correct amount of white cards that are needed. After everyone has played the czar shuffles and chooses a white card. The person that played that white card wins the black card. There is no true way to win the game, however, you can choose a determining factor if you so, please.
This game is so fun to play. It gets a little questionable at times but its just light-hearted fun to have with friends. One time I was playing with some club members and the black card said ” coming to Broadway near you … ___________ the musical”. I really didn’t have any good cards, so I just put down the card Darth Vader. when they flipped the card over everyone busted out laughing just by the thought of him having a musical. That was a really fun night.
