I hate you. You hate me. There are no purple dinosaurs in here to see. There is no better way to learn about a future son- or daughter-in-law than to isolate them in a wilderness cabin, pour them adult beverages, and make them play CAH.
My family has played Apples to Apples for many years and now they are grown my daughter kept asking about Cards Against Humanity. She could not afford to buy so I decided to buy along with the green, red, and blue expansion packs. Oh my, I have never been as entertained or embarrassed as I have been playing this game. We laughed so hard for hours. I will never look at family gatherings (or my children) in the same manner again. Glad I bought the expansion packs with it, we would nearly go through the entire set in one gathering.
I'd like to start this by saying that 1. I absolutely love this game and 2. I did absolutely no research into this product before I bought it because I was under the assumption that it was like the green box, which is a completely new set of cards. Be warned: this is just expansions 4-6. Had I known that, I would have not bought all of the expansions separately as well, but I'm finding that I don't regret it. As long as you shuffle it well (and have a lot of other cards like I do) you can almost overlook the fact that you basically have two of every card. Even if you don't shuffle it well, I've seen some pretty great uses of two of the same card before, so it turned out great in the end.
At this point, I own almost every expansion for Cards Against Humanity. Clearly, it's a favorite! Not only for me though, but for all of the adults, and not-yet-adults in my family and friend circle. After playing CAH for 12 hours straight one night, and for several hours each night for the following few days, I can safely say that my family is absolutely inappropriate yet hilarious in every way. They are my people! CAH is absolutely, the best game for me and my people! Entertaining, hilarious, inappropriate, topical, historical, sometimes factual, flippant, yet always causes bladder exploding issues for multiple players. We love it in every way.
If you're going to buy expansion packs for Cards Against Humanity, I suggest this one and the Red Box. Between the two, I have not had any issues with running out of cards or having a ton of repeats. When I first got the pack, I read through them before shuffling them with the existing deck, and laughed hard enough that I sweet tea squirted from my nose. The dog laying at my feet on the floor was not pleased.
The folks who design CAH are seriously twisted critters. Love it! Keep coming up with the boxes of cards! When I get out the box, amazing how many people at an event come over to where I am and join in the fun.
Love this game, but as with any game, it comes down to your group of players. Buying the expansions in this form is a no-brainer as it's basically a buy 2 expansions, get one free kind of deal and it's nice having less boxes to tote around if you don't have a "Bigger, Blacker, Box".
I had the OG box for forever, im talking like 6 years and with my friend group we collectively decided we needed a change so I got a couple of the expansions and just wow. It changes the game. I can't even play we ith the normal set anymore its too boring.
