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. Coming off of PAX EAST 2013, a third expansion for the game has been released.
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.

*Note: This expansion requires the core game to play.
Cards Against Humanity has become one of my go to games for large gatherings. The rules are simple, there’s really no need to keep score, and the game is social enough that over a dozen people can play at the same time, with no real change to game play. Trying to “win” isn’t really part of the core experience.
Right in time for PAX EAST 2013, a third expansion to the adult themed card game was released. 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. Something that was true about the last expansion as well. 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.Read More
