North Korea

The home of the oppressive and a crazy dictator who does not want his people to enjoy life. The North Koreans have no idea what the are missing.

My idea:

Take the popular game, Cards Against Humanity, translate it into Korean, and air drop it into North Korea.

imageThe North Koreans will be so shocked with game, they will will not be able to control themselves with laughter. They will be addicted to this happiness and then decide to overthrow the North Korean dictator who will not allow happiness in his country.

cards 2What is Cards Against Humanity?

It is a fun adult game that you play at social gatherings. It is VERY similar to the super fun family friendly game, Apples to Apples. My kids love playing Apple to Apples as a family!

 A reminder of Apples to Apples

Apples to Apples

ApplestoApples_Header_1014Each player picks a few red apple cards with different small answers (ex: Milk Duds, ballerinas, my friends, Demi Moore, lollipops). The players each take turns picking a green apple card (category). For example, if a player draws a green apple card labeled “cute”. Each player would look at their red apple cards to decide which one relates most to the word “cute.” The player decide which card to hand over (without showing it)to the person with the green card. The person with the green card must decide which card best relates to the word on the green card. The person who is the “winner” of the decision, gets the green apple card. If I had the green apple card with the word “cute” and the red apple cards listed above, I would probably choose the “my friends” as the winner. The person that collects the most green apple cards is the winner.

You can buy Apples to Apples at the store or on Amazon.

The Rated R Version of Apples to Apples

Cards Against Humanity is literally the same format as Apples To Apples but for adults. The cards are hilarious and some of them definitely cross over the “oh no” line. I have played this game on a few occasions recently and it has been sooooo fun. The game is hilarious.

Who is the game for:

  1. Adults with a sense of humor

     2. Adults who are not easily offended

     3. Adults who realize that the game is all in fun and not serious at all.

The Adult Apples to Apples

When I say “adult,” I am not inferring that it is a sex game. It is not. The cards are funny. There are a few cards that are crazy but most of the humor is found in the different context of the cards and the subject card.

Examples:

An example of a fill in the blank statement (black card): “I’m not going to lie, I despise_________. There, I said it.

The players would look at their white cards and decide which one goes best with this. Here are some examples of white cards “People who think the National Mall is a shopping mall; the Boy Scouts of America; Having your life choices controlled by millions of people on the internet; extremely tight pants”

I will admit that the examples I used are not really offensive. There are some really offensive cards in this deck.

Who is this game NOT for:

  1. If you are easily offended
  2. If you are not ok with things that are very anti-politically correct.                                                                                                                                                                                                                There are several cards that you think “Oh noooo….”

A little background info:

From Wikipedia “Cards Against Humanity was created by a group of Highland Park High School alumni as a party game for a New Year’s Eve celebration. It was modeled after Apples to Apples.” The group got together and launched a kickstarter campaign to finance their game. The kickstarter campaign was successful. The developers and owners of the company seem to be non conformist who like to get the shock value from people. They do unconventional things that you would not see from other more traditional companies.

On Black Friday 2015, the website offered a “Black Friday only” special offer, the option to “Give Cards Against Humanity $5”. There was a tick box to confirm that you understood “I am paying Cards Against Humanity $5 and receiving nothing in return”. A total of 11,248 customers bought $71,145 worth of nothing during the campaign. Later the creator team announced the company would distribute all money equally among the team members, who were asked to report back what they spent their money on. Many of them made donations to different charities.

Should I buy this game?

Do you find yourself hanging out with your friends (camping, trips, bbq’s, etc) and you decide that it would be fun to play a game? If you are around people who are not easily offended and like to laugh, this is a super hilarious game. Some of the cards are offensive but if you are able to get over that, you can focus on the cards that aren’t super offensive. The people who developed this game obviously don’t care about what people think. They do everything opposite of what can be considered “normal behavior.” Their strategy has been successful for them because in 2011, Cards Against Humanity was the number one game on Amazon. I think this would be a fun gift for your friends or family who can cut loose and are not easily offended.

We had so much fun we have decided to buy the expansion packs!

My question for you is this: Who is ready to play?
