Cards Against Humanity was a huge hit when it came out – its irreverent, no holds barred, no joke too dark humour, all wrapped up in a simple as hell system that’s really just Blankety Blank without the shackle of a Prime Time TV time slot, ensured it found a wide audience fast, one that’s always happy to introduce new people if only to see the look on their faces as the level drops and the gutter gets over populated…
Damn, I love this game!
But even with the wealth of expansions, ongoing as they are in creating them, there is still a shelf life on some of the cards, no matter how hilariously and deliciously dark they may be.
New blood is needed to keep things going, and the world being as it is, there are plenty of fully compatible sets you can mix in. Here is a quick run down the some I have found, and an idea of whether they are for you, or maybe just too far the wrong side of “Aw hell no!” for you and your friends…
