How to Play
Cards Against Humanity take literally only a couple of minutes to learn. Each player is given ten white cards. The cards have a simple word or phrase that might be odd, funny or vague. Then the “Card Czar” reads out a black card that is either a question or a “fill the blank” statement. The player that chooses the funniest combination of black and white cards is the winner of that hand.
The funniest card is chosen by the Card Czar and this role rotates so everyone gets a chance to have a go. You win by making the funniest combo so test your own comedic skills in each round. You play for however many rounds you want (depending on player numbers) and the player who has made the most amount of “best-combos” wins! Or set your own rule for winning as the game is fun and flexible.
The game is very flexible and you can decide to change some or even all of the rules. You and the other players can choose to include your own “House Rules’. For example, players can democratically choose the winning card for each round. Or you can give points for first, second and third place. You can even trade points for new cards. many players add their own little “twists” to the rules to make it suit their group better, and you can, too.
