Cards Against Humanity is a free party game for horrible people.

Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.

About a year ago, we posted a beta version of the game on GBS and got great feedback, and we're really excited to release this updated version. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the game, and if you want to submit cards for future versions, you can send ideas anonymously at

The Rules

To start the game, each player draws ten white "answer" cards. One randomly chosen player begins as the Card Czar, and plays a black "question" card. The Card Czar reads the question out to the group. Each player answers the question by passing one white "answer" card, face down, to the Card Czar. The Card Czar shuffles all of the answers, reads them out loud in a humorous fashion, and picks their favorite. Whoever played that answer gets to keep the Black Card as one Awesome Point. After each round, a new player becomes the Card Czar, and every player draws back up to ten cards.

Some cards say "Pick 2" on the bottom. To answer these, each player plays two White Cards in combination. Play them in the order that the Card Czar should read them - the order matters.

Printing Instructions

The full game of Cards Against Humanity is available for free under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license - that means you can use and remix the game for free, but you can't sell it. Making a set will take an hour and cost about $10.
  1. Download the first PDF and it them to a print shop. We found the best deal at Staples.
  2. Have them print the game on heavy, white card stock; 80-pound or higher. The cards are all black and white, but if you can convince them to use the color printer for no additional cost, you’ll get a much nicer result.
  3. For added fanciness, you can print black on the back of the question cards so they're easier to tell apart.
  4. Cut the cards up using one of those big slicers. Take your time and do a nice job and the cards will be easier to handle later.
  5. We got an awesome clear AMAC box (model 102C) for $1.50 at the Container Store that holds the cards perfectly.

Is it like Apples 2 Apples? Because that game owns.
