Letters Against Humanity: An Overview
The Card Game is a multiplayer party game that can be downloaded and printed for free, or purchased and delivered on paper. 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 out there.
Upon purchase, the game includes 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 of Cards Against Humanity is quite simple. At the beginning of the game, players are holding in their hands a selection of White Cards on which are written a host of crazy things ranging from Santa Claus to chainsaw hands and anything else that is meant to be fun and entertaining. A player is chosen to play as Card Czar. Card Czar’s duty is to choose a black card that contains a statement filled with blanks or a question that needs an answer.
The other players must each choose an answer from the white cards they have in an attempt to find a funny (or absurdly gruesome) answer to that statement or question. Card Czar chooses the one he likes the most and gives the black card to the one who got the best answer. The black card awards players incredible points.
To end a game, players choose three of their cards and try to build a haiku. It doesn’t really matter if the syllables aren’t enough.
Cards Against Humanity takes card games to a whole new level. Whether you want to have a good time with your friends during a sleepover or you just want to spend some time with your family during the holidays, this game is sure to keep you entertained. However, keep in mind that some of the statements may contain immense potential to be offensive. Still, the purpose of the game is to entertain and the statements should not be taken seriously.
