Firstly, Cards Against Humanity came bursting onto the market, impressing people quickly. It was created by a group of eight people from Highland Park High School. The game is heavily influenced by the popular game Apples to Apples.
Like poker, the game has a revolving dealer that picks a black question card. The question is often abstract or politically incorrect and left with an open-end or a blank space to fill in. Each player must hold 10-cards at a time and pick the best or most inappropriate or crass card they choose to match up to the question card.
The dealer, or “card czar” must judge the best answer and then give the question card to the winner. Once all the cards have been played, the person with the most question cards wins the game.
