Initially, I was going to title this post “Okay, Cards Against Humanity is dumb,” but when I think about the impetus to this post, it’s not so much that CAH is dumb, but the people who are enamored with the game that are dumb.
Don’t get me wrong, I think CAH is pretty dumb in itself, what with its minimalistic design of white Arial bold on black on everything that symbolizes a dagger into creativity, and the fact that it’s a game that’s basically the equivalent of being crass and vulgar because being crass and vulgar is supposedly cool. But CAH wouldn’t be the game so well known if not for the hordes of fans who love the game and are so willing to blow their money on cards with text on them, or in some cases, nothing at all, that are the party that should be subject to more criticism.
I mean I can’t hate on CAH for making money, that’s what they’re in business for. But I can’t get over the fact that there really are that many people who are so dumb and careless with their own money that they’d willingly forfeit it to a company that flamboyantly expresses their intent to do absolutely nothing of any worth with it.
