How to Play Cards Against Humanity

This is a very simple game to play.

To begin, each player draws ten white cards, you cannot look at other players cards. Place the rest of the white ‘answer’ cards and the black ‘question’ cards into stacks, faced down.

To play, you need a maximum of 4 players. As soon as you have your 4 players, anyone else can join in. It is funnier with more people involved! The rule is, the person who last ‘pooped’ is the person who will play first. Start the first round by turning over the very top card in the black ‘question’ stack of cards. Read the card out loud and leave it face-up on the table. The person who placed the black card then waits for everyone to choose a white card from the pile in their hand.

The aim of this game is to choose the funniest card to answer the question or statement. Once everyone has then chosen their cards, shuffle them up so nobody knows who placed what card and choose the most hilarious answer.

The winner of that round then keeps that black question card. The person with the most black cards at the end of the game, wins! To begin the next round, each player will draw back up to ten white cards. The person sitting next to the person who originally placed the black card left becomes the Czar for the next round. Pick a new black question card and begin.

When Does the Game end

This card game is non-competitive and has no end! You play until you are bored with it. If you want to have a defined end, play until only one player has 10 black question cards. Players will stop drawing new cards when they announce the end of the game but they will continue to play until they run out of cards. This leads to more offensive and nonsense answers.
