The Cards Against Humanity tournament-style event which was debuted by the Gay-Straight Alliance on Saturday, October 28th in Spagnuolo hall was a rousing success.

The event included prizes and raffles for the people who proved their depravity outranked that of their competitors.

As the name implies, Cards Against Humanity is a game intended to be not only inappropriate, but utterly despicable. Self described as “A party game for horrible people”, Cards Against Humanity pushes against social boundaries and seeks to allow everyone the opportunity to show the world how repulsive their humor truly is.

The game itself functions as a perverted version of Ad Libs, where its object is to fill in the blanks on black “question” cards with your white “answer” cards. The topics of these cards vary wildly, including social issues, celebrities, national disasters, and a staggering amount of male anatomy. One person acts as the Card Czar (dealer), distributing the desired number of white cards to each person. They then lay a black card face up, allowing each player to answer with their funniest white card. The position of Card Czar rotates each round, ensuring balanced play and impartial judgment. In order to maximize offensive content, card packs also come with blank cards, which allow a player to answer the black card with anything they can think of.

Cards Against Humanity takes no prisoners, seeking to offend as many people as possible. Freshman Joe Wiley says that “as long as everyone is offended equally, it’s okay.” The only limit to the game’s depravity is the player’s imagination and willingness to offend.
