Another Reason to Love Cards Against Humanity.

I love Cards Against Humanity - its like the adult version of Apples to Apples + makes you laugh like no other. I had been waiting to get my own set for months, after it had been sold out. I could have printed free cards from the site, but lets face it - I'm not going to waste time printing these, plus cutting, then finding somewhere to put them. No. I want the fancypants box + the shiny little cards.

So, once I finally got word that Cards Against Humanity was FINALLY back in stock, I snagged it off Amazon faster than you can say Austral Pygmy Owl. They also released a Holiday Expansion Pack, which allowed buyers to name their price. They said they cost $3 to make, but suggested price was $5. I snagged a set, because I saw that one of the cards said "Elf cum," + lets be real  - how could I say no to that?

Well, what I didn't know was what the creators of Cards Against Humanity planned on doing with the profits they made from the Holiday Expansion Pack. I received an email today, telling us how the Holiday Expansion Pack sales fared  + how they decided to spend the money. After reading the link included in the email, I soon realized how they decided to spend the profits + gasped. This video is at the end of the email, but I wanted to put it on here in case you didn't feel like clicking the links.

Dude, this might be one of the coolest things I have seen in quite some time. I use Wikipedia on a daily basis, whether it be for academia or general information [note: regarding academia, I do not quote information on Wikipedia, but I do check the sources they utilized, to see if it is appropriate for what I am working on]. Erich + I were actually discussing making a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation [they operate Wikipedia + other Wiki projects] after the holidays. We still plan on donating, because we enjoy giving back to those who give to us!

Now, as for Cards Against Humanity, I plan on supporting them to the fullest, after this awesome act on their part - they could have used those funds for new projects or holiday bonuses, but decided to donate it to something the utilize on the regular. I still need to snag the First Expansion + Second Expansion, which will have to wait til after the holidays, but I also plan on giving the gift of Cards Against Humanity throughout the year [if it isn't sold out, which happens often]. I believe in giving back to good folks, even especially if they are foul-mouthed + inappropriate.

Update: If you looked on Wikipedia to figure out what an Austral Pygmy Owl was, let me know! ;-)


  1. Saw this and instantly bought it for the boyfriend - I'm sure he'll love it!

  2. I have been wanting to buy that game for a while now...will have to now after reading this!

    1. Amazon JUST restocked again today, so make sure you grab a set before they sell out again. The first restocking lasted less than a week!
