Why Cards Against Humanity is Really F**king Boring
Let’s face it. Cards Against Humanity is really f**king boring. Yawn-city. Snooze-ville. Dead in the grave.
“But it’s the top-selling game on Amazon!” You say. Sure, but not for long.
I can’t remember the last time I was with friends and someone wanted to play Cards Against Humanity. It’s no longer relevant.
Here Are the 5 Reasons Why:
5: It’s Old
Yeah, it was fun for the first couple of times, but these days we need new and fresh ideas.
Expansion packs can only delay the inevitable demise of the black and white behemoth. It gets really old quick to read “Helen Keller ate ____ for breakfast.” 6 or 7 times with a new word in the blank. The laughter always comes off pretty forced after the 1st or 2nd round. Not even new expansions can freshen up this ancient rotting heap.
4: Crass is Done
Hur hur, look I made a dick/race joke for the fiftieth time.
Someone recently told me that CaH was basically a way for people who are unconfident in making inappropriate jokes to do so backhandedly. Grow up and play a real game that has some meaning.
3: No Imagination
It takes literally zero imagination to play Cards Against Humanity. Zip.
I’ve won with cards that I was tossing out there to just get rid of them. Most times there’s no rhyme or reason as to why someone picks a card. There’s often no logic, it’s usually just the card that everyone laughed at the most. When creating a game you need to think about these sorts of things.
2. They’re Beating a Dead Horse
The premise was okay for the first time and some of the expansions had one or two funny cards but now it’s just stupid. Move on, people. There are plenty of better games out there nowadays.
1. New Games Are Kicking its Burnt-out Ass
What games, you ask? Easy, there is our own 420 – The Card Game, which we don’t mind shilling in here because we made it up specifically because CaH was SO f**king boring now.
You can read more about it here or on Amazon, but suffice it to say that this game will take decades to get old because each new group that it’s played with changes the entire dynamic of the situation.
