Cards Against Humanity: Design Pack Full Spoiler

2 08 2015

During the fasting periods between the mainline expansions, the Cards Against Humanity team has recently been generously producing little snack-packs to satiate consumer hunger, such as the 90’s Pack and Nostalgia Pack that whet the appetite. While most of the content from those mini-expansions caters to specific tastes, they haven’t generally strayed far from the format and formula of the core game. Not so with the arrival of the recent Design Pack, in which the “Now For Something A Little Different” switch has been flipped.

The Design Pack at first glance appears to contain 29 cards with the familiar white card backs, but upon the turnaround you’ll find that each is adorned with full-bleed, full-color artwork akin to something like the cards from Dixit, albeit with a predictably obscene slant. Each card is unique, and appears to be something of a tribute to George Carlin’s renowned “seven words you can never say on television” bit. As expected the imagery is mostly as “colorful” as the game’s language.

As amusing and unexpected as the content of this mini-expansion is, I have a hard time seeing how it would integrate if one were to mix it with the base game in the way that it is typically intended to be played. I can’t envision these image cards as cogent responses to many of the black card’s prompts. Perhaps it is better to think of this pack as a piece of quaint bonus content, akin to something you would see from one of their holiday promotions. But another exciting possibility is that it is an experiment with the production of full-colored cards for a future project, as the visual quality of these cards is rather impressive.

Speculation aside, if you are curious as to the particulars of the content, hit the link to the next page to see them all laid plain. I feel like I shouldn’t have to say this at this point but you probably shouldn’t peek at these if your boss or grandma is watching (unless they’re into it).

Cards Against Humanity: Science Pack Full Spoiler

12 04 2015

Occasionally Cards Against Humanity releases themed mini-expansions such as their yearly holiday packs and one-offs like the 90s Pack or Reject Pack. This time around we’re treated to the Science Pack, filled with informed-sounding jargon and science-y references perfect for you to play with and exchange pretentious knowing glances with your learned friends that “f***ing love science.”

Cards Against Humanity: Sixth Expansion Full Spoiler

4 04 2015

The CAH expansions almost seem to be outpacing the years that pass at this point, which is nothing to complain about unless you’ve got some kind of cognitive disorder. The CAH train seems to be bustling along with their yearly promotional stunts, holiday specials, and even acquisition of vast tracts of land such as “Hawaii 2,” so lets look forward to more releases and success from the CAH team! Unless, you know, you’re a shitty person or something.

Curiously, there are no PICK 2 black cards in the sixth expansion. Perhaps they are trying to adjust the ratio of single-picks to the doubles after the glut of PICK 2s from recent expansions.

If you’re wondering why there’s no 5th expansion spoiler here, it’s because by the time I got around to writing it up I discovered it was already available. Go check out the CAH page on boardgamegeek.com if you want to see it.

Cards Against Humanity 90s Nostalgia Pack Full Spoiler

22 05 2014

A 30 card mini-expansion was recently released on the online Cards Against Humanity store, dedicated to the 10 retrospectively awkward years before the turn of the millenium. Rifling through these additions you may in quick succession experience a rush of nostalgic familiarity, followed by a sting of realization that you are not as young as you used to be, followed by a twinge of shame/regret. Enjoy.

Cards Against Humanity Bigger Blacker Box Expansion Full Spoiler

23 11 2013

If you are a devout CAH collector then you’ve probably already encountered the problem of storage using all these cards. And it is a big problem. Big problems need bigger solutions, and fortunately there is a solution to this conundrum in the form of the “The bigger, blacker box,” the proprietary and official box of holding from the CAH team.

What you might not have known is that as an added bonus, the BBB comes with a very small packet containing the “Box Expansion,” featuring an assortment of box-themed white cards. The packet’s inclusion is mostly just a fun joke, as the individual entries are all box-centric and can be a bit rigid in their application or fall flat (durr hurr hurr). Still, they are a semi-official release and if not used in actual play, are still a trinket addition to the CAH legacy.

Cards Against Humanity: Fourth Expansion Full Spoiler

23 11 2013

CAH is 4 for 4 for releasing yearly content updates, and I will drain this glass as a toast to this and many more like it in the future. I was gonna drain it anyway, but y’know.

The black cards are starting to sound similar to older ones but are still phrased well. The white cards feature the most promiscuity of any expansion set so far, but if you’re a CAH veteran, it’s not going to make you blush at this point.

It’s worth my $10 and I’d venture it’s gonna be worth yours too. Get the full spread on the next page.

Cards Against Humanity: PAX East 2013 Packs “A,” “B,” and “C” Full Spoiler

6 04 2013

Some might be aware that there are a few promotional items for Cards Against Humanity in addition to the core sets and 3 expansions so far. The “holiday pack” came out late last year in a pay-what-you want campaign with various holiday-themed cards, and prior to that there were promo packs given out at PAX Prime 2012 but they were mostly updated cards-for people who had older sets-that were already available in the recent core sets.

At PAX East 2013 there were three small promotional packs that were given out throughout the show featuring all-new cards catering to the PAX crowd. They are fairly easy albeit a tad pricey to obtain on eBay, and the completionist impulse in me spurred a purchase.

The jokes and references are fairly niche, targeted specifically towards the PAX East crowd featuring game-related and Penny Arcade culture humor. If you are curious on the contents of the packs and if they are worth pursuing for your set, find the full card list on page 2.
