Arena Review: Cards Against Humanity Second Expansion

In our initial review of the card game Cards Against Humanity, we commented that one of the potential issues is a level of fatigue that can set in from playing the game too often. One of the best solutions to this issue is to simply issue more cards to help keep the game fresh. After an initial expansion launched along with the core game we now have the “Second Expansion.”

Cards Against Humanity is a 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.

Suggested ages: 17 and up
Number of players: 4 to 20+
Playing time: 30 to 90 minutes
Contents: 112 cards (75 white and 25 black, 8 blank white cards, 4 blank black cards)
Retail price: $10 on Amazon
*Note: This expansion requires the core game to play.

If you’ve played the core Cards Against Humanity, you’re about to get more of the same. There are no new mechanics, card types or anything that changes the original experience. Players still play topic cards (white cards) in order to answer questions or complete sentences Mab Lib style (black cards). The cards are then judged by one player and a winner is selected. Rinse and repeat.
