Cards Against Humanity is a party game featuring Mad Libs style cards in which players try to match white “answer” cards" containing a noun or a gerund, with a black “question” card containing a fill-in-the-blank statement. The game is often compared to the more family-friendly precursor Apples to Apples.
To play cards against humanity, each player begins with ten white cards each. Then one player designated as the "card czar draws a black card, which poses a question or has a statement with one or more blank. Each player then plays one card they think will fit with the black card in the funniest way. The card czar selects their favorite, and that player receives the black card. This process then repeats with a new car czar.
There are several alternative ways to play including “God is Dead,” when players work without a card czar, and “Never Have I Ever,” when players may discard cards they don’t understand as long as they admit their lack of knowledge to the group.
The game was created by a group of friends for a New Year’s Eve party in . It was then uploaded to their website CardsAgainstHumanty.com where people can download a printable version of the cards for free. Following the success of their Kickstarter campaign in 2010, a printed card set became available for purchase in 2012.
On December 10th, 2010 Max Temkin created a Kickstarter Campaign to create a printed box set. Pledging $15 dollars would get backers the box set, while $30 would get them the set as well as 16 custom printed cards. The project received well over their $4,000 goal, and when it ended on January 30th, they had raised over $15,000.
