You may or may not have heard about this little game called Cards Against Humanity. It’s a great, though seriously wrong, card game. Check the link for more details but, basically, the game is played using sets of black and white cards. Every player gets 10 white cards. One player then draws a black card. This is a ‘question’ card. The other players then have to respond using one of their white cards. Whomever the holder of the black card thinks provided the funniest answer wins a point.

That’s the basic gist of it.

Thing is, the black cards generally propose terrible, inappropriate, or just plain wrong situations. And the white cards generally contain sexist, racists, or just plain wrong responses.

So if you’re into that, a good time is had by all.

Flash back to last week, where a couple of friends and I introduced the game to the neighbours of my friend’s mother. It’s 11pm, they’ve each had 3 packs of cigarettes, several bottles of booze, they’ve been talking shit all night, and they’re bogans.

Cue an hour-and-a-half of screaming about genitalia, denigrating every minority they can think of, stuffing up every game mechanic involved, and proudly boasting about their own sexual prowess.

Needless to say, roulette was looking pretty good.

Postscriptum:

Another thing, some of them saw fit to include their 8 year-old son in the game. Not only was the content — mostly that of his own parents — massively inappropriate for the kid, but the gameplay also resulted in the boy developing a catchphrase.

“For the first time!”

Which was repeated. Over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. ¬†And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over…

Hence the deviation from the usual one-word title in this comic.
