Cards Against Humanity has always been a bit irreverent. The party game is geared for adults, and it’s pretty apparent why. The game is played by filling in the blanks on cards that are drawn. The more politically incorrect, offensive, and risqué the answer, the better. Now the producers of the game are looking to expand their pool of players by creating the Cards Against Humanity Family Edition.
Given that the game relies on being politically incorrect, you may wonder just how it will work for families with little kids. This time around, Cards Against Humanity is “written for kids and adults to play together.” Originally, the game was supposed to be released in the fall, but with the current quarantine, the producers of the game descried to release a public beta of the game that can be downloaded and printed for free “so you can print it at home and play it right now with your bored family.” It’s a pretty generous offer, and the producers acknowledge that, explaining, “We’ll figure out how to make money on it later.”
In response to whether the game is family-friendly, the producers state, “Yes. That’s why it’s called Cards Against Humanity Family Edition.” According to the web site, the game is designed for people ages 8 years old and up, though they do explain that “we’ve never met your kids” so they can’t state with certainty that your kids will be able to play the game. The content of the game is PG-rated, and it has been play-tested with families. According to the site, ‘Crap’ and ‘boobies’ is about as bad as it gets and they promise that there is about “six hundred poop jokes” in the game. And it’s not just for families. Even if you don’t have kids, you can enjoy the game “if you have a pure soul and a smile in your heart.”
