How to Play Cards Against Humanity?
They’re different statements that depending on the question can be funny if you see it in the right light and then there are the black cards which are question cards or fill in the blanks and then you have the instruction card not a whole lot to it but it turns out it’s a lot of fun as long as you’re with people who are sort of like miles and Frasier to play the game.
Everybody gets 10 white cards these are the potential answers and then you picked a card czar who’s the person who basically runs the game according to instructions he should be the person who pooped most recently so gives you kind of a feel for the game there. Now that person will pick one black card read the question on it or the fill in the blank statement. Everyone will think look at their cards and take the card that they think would make the funniest answer or fill in the blank to that and they will take that card and they all pass it to the cards are the cards then goes and reads them.
This is sort of like a game you might remember people who would play with the fortune cookies that you get after a meal at a Chinese restaurant where you just add in bed to whatever it says. In the fortune that makes it fun so the cards are we’ll take the white cards the answer is people submit it shuffle them up and then read them the question and answer the question. In the answer aloud and then the cards will pick which one is the funniest answer for that question.
The Other Way
The other way you can play it is to have everybody vote and decide which one’s the finest. You then pick a new card czar and people holding on to the white cards can turn in as many of them as they would like and draw new ones.
