When it comes to party, words come into mind maybe dinner, ball, barbecue, candy, cake, drink and dance. But here we are introducing an interesting card game that would be a party game for horrible people. Whenever you get bored about barbecue, drinking, or dancing, this game would be a great alternative.
It is called Cards Against Humanity-A party game for horrible people, which is developed by Cards Against Humanity LLC.
Similar to other card games, Cards Against Humanity is made up with cards which have texts on it. Players complete fill-in-the-blank statements using words or phrases printed on playing cards. The game is available as a free download that players can print to create their own cards, and also available to purchase as a published hard copy.
The basic rules are as follows:
> To start the game, each player draws ten White Cards.
> The person who most recently pooped (a form of primitive randomization) begins as the Card Czar and plays a Black Card, face up. The Card Czar reads the question (or fill-in-the-blank phrase) on the Black Card out loud.
> The remaining players fill in the blank (or answer the question, depending on the exact contents of the black card) by silently passing one White Card, face down, to the Card Czar.
> The Card Czar shuffles all of the answers and shares each card combination with the group. For full effect, the Card Czar should usually re-read the Black Card before presenting each answer. The Card Czar then picks the funniest play, and whoever submitted it gets one Awesome Point.
> After the round, a new player becomes the Card Czar, and everyone draws back up to ten White Cards.

Afterall, manufacturer recommended age for this card game is 17 and above.
But that keeps teenager talking to parents and made them feel comfortable speaking about odd or uncomfortable things is definitely a good contribution to parenting and education. Parents could provide guidance and explain things correctly comparing to other teenagers. So that parents would not reject to play this game with teenagers.
Of course it is not a children's game, and this is not a game to play with Grandma. But if you and your friends enjoy laughing at the darker side of life, art, and pop culture... This is the perfect game for your next party.
