I played Cards Against Humanity for the first time on Thanksgiving day.  Awesome game.

Nice, we've had it at a few Fark parties. It's gone over pretty well. You do have to play it with the right group of people. It's no fun trying to explain what heteronormativity is. Probably would have been better off playing Apples To Apples with that group.

Oh, that wasn't an issue in this case.  The Thanksgiving day hosts, also the ones who taught me & some of the other guests the game, are also gamers.  My son goes to their home every Wednesday to play Pathfinder.

Nothing innocent about the people we played CAH with.  But we're all a bunch of geeks/nerds.

susansto-helit: 1. Asians who are bad at math


In all sincerity, I ask: is ironic, hipster racism still racism? Last time we played, my wife played once, then decided she didn't like the game, and told that was why. The next game at the same party someone drew the 'big black dick' card, and it made me wonder something similar.

Not trying to be a debbie downer; I just think the game goes for a certain mid-brow demographic, and seems like it tosses in these low-brow notions specifically to make the midders feel like they're high-brow because they 'get it'.

It's possible to combine the two games: Apples against humanity. I don't know what the rules are, but it produces things like this. (mildly NSFW)

The main difference that I see is that their mechanic is a fill-in-the-blank mechanic, and not a "Here's an adjective, give me some nouns" mechanic like in Apples to Apples.

Blank 1: A Christmas stocking full of coleslaw
Blank 2: Taking down Santa with a surface-to-air missile

Simple solution for the cards you don't like, or are too low-brow for you: remove those card and make your own from the blanks they give you.

I play with people who get upset with the religious cards, or any dealing with children, or special needs. So they don't play them, and take others. Gets boring and low-brow with those same people fawning over dick jokes, not playing "Eugenics" or "M. Night Shamalamadingdong card" for laughs, and not enjoying a tactical use of "The Blood Of Christ".

This game delivers. I introduced it to friends & family, playing with a group whose youngest is 21, oldest is 70. Everyone loves it, and I have influenced 3 people to buy it. In the group is my mom. Ever explain "pixleated bukkake" to your mom?

Different target audiences and target play environments. As much as I like Munchkin, that game doesn't fly well with non-nerds. Gelatinous Octahedron flies right over their heads, and is met with "that doesn't make any sense, it's stupid". Dominion and Catan aren't party games, and require more thought and play style than some people want to invest after a long week, or at a barbecue.

Duck_of_Doom: bukkake



I felt kind of uber-nerdish that I knew what bukkake meant & my 32-year old son didn't when the word came up during the game.  Too much time on fark I guess.  And my son is an avid gamer too.

Obviously you don't know the right people.

You're definitely right about those games being for different audiences.

Someone had to do it.

2012-12-18 06:38:58 AM  
I love me some occasional CAH, but if played against the same people too long, I've found it gets a little stale - especially when the same few cards become auto-wins despite the lack of fitting the goal sentence (I'm looking at you, Glenn Beck cards / Wanking into orphans' tears).

If you're looking for a good "pick up and go" game (i.e. doesn't require 10^3 pieces or rulebook pages) I suggest giving Red Dragon Inn a shot - I've gotten plenty of friends and family members hooked on it, including those who have no idea what D&D stands for.

Or maybe the pope needed more solid gold accouterments.

If you don't think Wikipedia helps children, you're an idiot, where do you think most kids start their research?

It's a free set of Encyclopedia Britannicas for anyone with internet access. I fail to see how donating to keeping information free is a bad thing.

Munchkin- doesn't work for non-nerds
Cataan-too much focus required for a party. People want to talk about random shiat, not what it costs to upgrade a town.

shiat I have trouble getting people to pay attention long enough to learn Bang! and that game is super easy. Sometimes you don't want to have to chase people down to explain a rule that came up while they were gone, Cards Against Humanity is good for this. It has built in bathroom breaks, you can throw a card down and go to the bathroom or make another drink as the cards are being read. All of those other games you mentioned requires full attendance the whole time.

Here's the game I prefer to play, but again it takes the right crowd.

I love CAH. Still, my current addiction as far as card games goes is Thunderstone. Best for a small group, like 3 or 4 people, but holy christ is it fun. It's like a combination of Diablo and Magic: the Gathering. My current group switches between that and Cards Against Humanity for our game nights. Entirely too much fun is had.

Teehee! You think Dominion, Munchkin, and Settlers of Catan are complicated games. *snicker*

/come back when you've played Trajan


Dominion is a highly complex game if you dig deep enough, or play at tournament level. About as complex as Magic without the pay-to-win problem. Catan has a similar complexity at the tournament level, though it's more political, and gah I can't believe I'm defending Catan.

Munchkin is no more complex than CAH but makes little sense to non-nerds.

I haven't played Trajan, but there are plenty of complex 3+ hour fun games out there.
