With a name like "Cards Against Humanity" I assumed that it would be family friendly and appropriate for all ages.

And some copypasta from the game's website

"Fun fact: 100% of the Cards Against Humanity writers are Jewish. Can you believe it? A Jewish comedy writer! Anything is possible in 2017," reads the product description on the game's site.

CAH is carried in stores?  I'm amazed the game content wasn't objected to before now.

House rules are that if you pair "big black dick" with "bigger black dick" you automatically win.

I have one friend who's of course jewish and his own auto-win card is 'the jews', if I've got it I'll even boldly slap it down before he's read the black card.  Pretty much all of us have our auto-win cards.  Mine is 'tasteful side-boob'.

True, and I love it for that, but one can argue that this is why they don't typically do retail. Who at Target thought that carrying this game was a good idea?

The concept that it can be funny to say farked up things because it's already understood that those things are farked up to say, and not because a joke is meant to be a literal statement of one's core philosophical beliefs...yeah, that insight seems to have skipped a generation.

Oh, agreed; for as much as people complain about the Millennials being PC zealots, they don't hold a candle to the Boomers in the 80s and 90s.

That's maybe why us Gen-Xers ended up to be such jaded coonts :)

had a "friend" who didn't like CAH because they were anti-conservative.

Literally 4 white cards in the basic deck about conservatives.  That is about the same logic of not eating a bag of M&Ms cause of one of them being poisoned

I would say not eating a bag of M&Ms because one of them is poisoned would be very good logic. Why take that large a risk with a bag of candy when you can just get another bag? Not sure what you were going for with that analogy.

So all the blasphemy, sexism, and racism are ok, but don't joke about conservatives? Buy them their own deck and tell them to modify. All my friends have cards they don't play or tore up - one friend had an acquaintance die at VA Tech so that card is never played, another hates any about hurting children or babies so those were tossed.

Hmmm, anti-conservative and anti-liberal sets? That's a good idea for the CAH crew. Just think of all the possibilities of the decks were shuffled together! Fun for all the family!

The first time I played Cards Against Humanity I was at a late night house party. I got my ass kicked and thrown out. I thought we were playing Simon Says.

Target also carried CAH's potato chips for a while.

CSB: i have a weekly gaming group that plays various low-effort games like Cards Against Humanity and Superfight with the staff and employees of a strip club near my apartment. We usually play on Fridays during the day shift, but in the winter, games can stretch in to the early evening if real customers don't come in. The owner of the club is fully aware we play and  and we do so with her blessing, because she's figured out that it's a lot easier to get dancers and waitresses to show up for the early shifts when I have my games there.

And honestly, the strip club is the absolutely ideal place to play Cards Against Humanity, because where else in public can you yell "Bigger, Blacker Dick" and not get beaten up or asked to leave?

Personal connections to bad experiences like the VA Tech card example or even the babies or children, possibly even some of the nasty ones I can understand being removed for the faint of heart, but honestly beyond that, I find a really hard time justifying removing cards because the game itself is based upon offending everyone, I find that if a card offends me (or should offend me because I fit the demographic described), that I don't feel like have a right to remove that card(s) without also removing the cards that obviously would offend everyone else, at which point you are left with not enough cards to play the game and are really missing the point of the experience. If you can't laugh at yourself then I don't think cards against humanity is the game for you. They should look up apples to apples if they want something non offensive.

Had one game where big black dick, bigger blacker dick and the biggest blackest dick all came out for one card. Was quite the experience.

shiat I'm a Millennial and I have played CAH with an 80 year old couple that were the best I've ever seen. Yeah we had to be VERY selective on who we invite to those parties. The older folks that don't like it generally don't want to go after the sales pitch, the millennials we have to give them the extended sales pitch with all the bells and whistle.

I think hes referencing the bad analogy conservatives tried to make about voter fraud, comparing an election with fraudulent votes to eating M&M if one of them in the bag was poisoned.

I had friends trapped in the building for Columbine. They all made it out, but one in particular I didn't hear until the next morning. While I can understand some people wanting to remove cards of events like that, I don't recall a Columbine card, but would keep it in myself. I could see it being tough to win with if I'm the decider though. So having that card is likely a huge disadvantage.

I don't generally get offended at anything, expect people who are offended by everything. Being offended isn't worth the emotional effort, and I don't think comedy has lines or boundaries, but I can appreciate certain jokes would fall flat or not appeal to certain demographics.
