If you have never heard of Cards Against Humanity, that probably means you’re a decent human being… For the most part, at least. Cards Against Humanity boasts itself as a “party game for horrible people” but it’s really just a fun rendition of the age old game Apples to Apples in this writer’s opinion. Filled with jokes you could never find yourself telling, or just funny sentences you get to finish, Cards Against Humanity is a fun game all around, but definitely not for all ages. There are many cards that are not for the faint of heart or younger eyes, so please play responsibly.

Throughout the years, Cards Against Humanity has received multiple expansion packs, though never an update to the core game. But now, for the first time ever, Cards Against Humanity is receiving a base game update with more cards than it originally came with (now with 600 vs 550). This new update gives you over 150 brand new cards, though the rest of the cards are still the same. Here’s what the Cards Against Humanity creators have to say about the update:

It’s the latest and best edition of Cards Against Humanity! We’ve expanded the game from 550 to 600 cards and replaced over 150 outdated jokes. If your deck is feeling old and stale, now is the time to upgrade.

The Cards Against Humanity creators also dropped a college expansion pack just in time for school to start, and it’ll only set you back a mere $7 at the Cards Against Humanity store, and $9 Prime shipped at Amazon. The college pack comes with 30 cards directed toward academics and extracurriculars (though be careful with those), and should help to spice up any college party you may come across.

Cards Against Humanity also decided that they needed to lighten (or darken?) the mood for its perspective college students, and launched a “Back to School” bundle and special webpage, though the webpage can be hilarious some times, and dark and dim at others, depending on your major.

The “Back to School” bundle includes:

  • Cards Against Humanity 2.0
  • College expansion pack (30 cards)
  • Protractor
  • A poster for your dorm room
  • And more (though the Cards Against Humanity webpage is eerily quiet on what this “more” could be)

So what are you waiting for? You can pick up the base Cards Against Humanity game for just $25 Prime shipped at Amazon or the Cards Against Humanity store. The Back to School bundle will set you back just $29 Prime shipped, but like above, includes the base game and more.
