Ah, Cards Against Humanity. The epic drunk-and-bored game of the early 21st century.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, here are the rules:
- Most of the cards are white and are nouns.
- The others are black and are questions or fill-in-the-blank types.
- Each turn, one player pulls a random black card.
- Then the other players put down a white card they think is funniest when paired with the aforementioned black card.
- That original player (who pulled the black card) picks his or her favorite pairing.
- The person who played that white card gets a point.
It’s Apples to Apples, but horribly and hilariously offensive. I called alum and co-creator of CAH Ben Hantoot ’09 to get his blessing for a Brown University expansion pack. He said it was chill. He was on his Bluetooth, driving what was probably a really nice car, what with all the big money to be made in board games these days. We had a funny conversation about smoking weed on Governor Street and the difference between Canadians’ and Americans’ card preferences, which you can read in Post- Magazine HERE. (I’m not going to pull a Jonah Lehrer and write the same article for two publications, even though I am not Jonah Lehrer and no one would care if I did.) All I can say is that I’m proud to attend the same school [wipes away single tear] as this modern genius once did. After Binder, let’s give Hantoot an honorary degree.
So here it is: the Brown University Expansion Pack. We hope you’ll mix them in with the original game, which you can download free on the Cards Against Humanity website. The card “Controversial Herald opinion articles” deserves to play in the big leagues. I, for one, will be at the GCB with these bad boys if you wanna hang out. Take a look after the jump.
