Cards against Humanity (online game) - thoughts
So I have come across this muggle game called 'Cards against Humanity' and I understand that it's a physical game, in which I meant that it's a game that a group of friends gather around a table and play, much like any game that exists in the physical world. I didn't get a chance to play it with real muggles but I found an online version of it.

Anyway, I have played a couple of rounds with some muggles and I have to say that some of the things that these muggles think of shows quite a new side to muggles.
Let me first explain the basics of the game. Each player gets a few cards with random words on each that they will have to throw into the play area each round. These cards are called white cards and are used to answer questions or fill in the blanks of statements that are written on black cards. Yes. They are called black cards.
A round starts when there is a new black card and what you do is to play a card or two or three, depending on what is required for that black card from your cards. There will be a judge every round and players take turns deciding the winner (the one who has the funniest, or makes the most sense, or whatever). The judge is called the card czar and no one knows who played which card. The only time you know who played which card is when the white card is picked as the winner.
I first found out about this online game from one of the YouTube channels that I've been following. I've provided a link to one of the videos that she has posted up if you are interested to watch how the game is like.

Anyway, it's pretty fun game, whether it's playing with a bunch of friends or with a couple of strangers. I suppose the whole anonymous thing helps players chose really offensive and yet hilarious answers. If only there were some wizarding community references. That would be fun.
As always, leave me a comment and let me know what you think, or just say hi!
