Cards Against Humanity: The Doctor Who Edition
If you and your friends are as dark-humored as we are here at GFR, there’s a good chance you’ve already played Cards Against Humanity, or at least heard someone talk about it. Described on the official website as “A free party game for horrible people,” Cards Against Humanity challenges you to indulge your worst instincts in a way that makes you and your buddies belly laugh and possibly spray snot across the room. Well, if CAH has become a staple of your social group’s parties, now you can mix up the gallows humor with some Gallifrey humor, thanks to a free Doctor Who-themed expansion. Do I need to tell you that this post is going to get a bit NSFW? Because it is.
The way you play Cards Against Humanity is pretty simple. There are two types of cards: black question cards and white answer cards. Each round one player picks a black card and reads the question aloud, then the other players look at their hand and choose the white-card answer that is the funniest response. For example, one such call-and-response that’s currently on the game’s website reads, “Before he died, Michael Jackson thought about _____.” The most offensive of the scrolling responses: “The profoundly handicapped.” You get the idea.
The game is free to download and was published under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike, meaning anybody can create new decks/cards for the game, so long as they don’t charge for them. The possibilities boggle the mind, but comedy group Conventional Improv decided that, what with Doctor Who just having celebrated its 50th anniversary, by god the world needed a Who-themed CAH deck. Thus was born Cards Against Gallifrey. Needless to say, the phrase “wibbly-wobbly, timey wimey” can turn pornographic but quick. Also, “Captain Jack Harkness” is going to be a correct response like 90 percent of the time.
You can check out a selection of both the question and answer cards below, and I can already hear you degenerates cobbling together filthy, disgusting combinations. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to recharge River Song’s vibrating sonic screwdriver.
