I actually just found a card from a friend's game under my couch. OF COURSE I posted on facebook that I found their balls under my couch.



I love this game so much. At parties when it gets pulled out, we know that it's basically going to be played until people go home.

Best game ever. Once you play this, it's hard to go back to Apples to Apples.

I honestly wouldn't play with a lot of people on the forums, much as I like you, some of you are a bit thin skinned.

Pfft. Our house rule is basically the most offensive always wins.

Also I want to know everyone's favorite card. Mine is "German Dungeon Porn" because it gives me fits of the giggles.

Yesss.

 :roll: There are times when no answers are offensive. But it's CAH. Almost everything is offensive. Even "PUPPIES!" when played right.

That's not the actual rule? Shit. We've been playing it wrong the whole time then XD

There are a couple cards that are sickeningly cute and I always have to save those for one of my friends. I mean, she likes offensive, but she REALLY likes the cute ones. I can't remember her trump card. It's something to do with an animal in something.

That's the thing, I laugh at fucked up things, but clever matters more than offensive (so basically...try to make it both).

I've played this once really. It was a big get-together in the kink/BDSM scene, nothing sexy just social party.

We had way too many people in too small a room playing, but we were all having a good time.

I laughed...I laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed. It was painful. It was ridiculous. It was amazing. I cried and couldn't breath, and I swear it took WAYYYY too many minutes for me to get my shit together enough to actually say it out loud. I had to leave the room afterward for a few to get my composure back together.

And I also felt a little bad because I figured there was no way it could live up to people's expectations after I'd went through all that. But.... the template card I was judging for was "And for my next trick, I will pull _____ out of ____!"

And there were some beautiful answers, but what really got me...

 In the meantime, You can try the online (clone) version:
 I Can't Believe It's Not Cards Against Humanity!

 Just pick a username and join a current game (they say what cards/expansion are using). Or create a new one; you can put a password so only those you know would join in.

I've played that, but CaH is by its very nature a party game. It's just not the same without hearing the laughter of your fellow players.

Yeah, that's probably why I've never played it. I don't go to parties around here and don't really have many friends nearby.

You don't need a party but you do need at least 4 or 5 people.

Well, hey, they used to prescribe speed as a weight loss pill. Whatever works, right?!

(My mom was prescribed speed in the 70s. She said it worked, but you know, she couldn't sleep because she had to do ALL THE THINGS.)

Also I played this with my coworkers (I work at a preschool, btw) after work and holy cow, I never thought I'd be so amused by middle aged women laughing so hard over the phrase "balls deep". One of my coworkers is a little sheltered, even as an adult, and she didn't quite get what the "balls deep in a squealing hog..." meant at first, but once she did, it was her new favorite phrase.
