Objective of Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition
The objective of Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition is to earn the most Awesome Points by providing the funniest answer to various prompts in the game.
- Each player randomly draws ten white cards. Players can look at their own white cards, but shouldn’t show them to the other players.
- The player who most recently pooped becomes the first Card Czar (Judge). This role will rotate throughout the game.
Playing Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition
Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition is played over a number of rounds.
Reading the Black Card
Each round begins with the Card Czar drawing a black card. They will read the card out loud. It will have a prompt on it which features a blank.
Choosing A Card to Play
After the black card is read, all of the other players look through the cards in their hand. They are trying to find a card that fits the prompt read from the current black card. They will most likely want to pick a card that leads to the funniest combination.
When a player has picked their card for the round, they will hand it face down to the Card Czar.
Card Czar Chooses the Best Submitted Card
Once all of the players have submitted a white card, the Card Czar mixes up all of the cards so they don’t know which player submitted each card. They will then read the prompt for each submitted card using the white card’s word(s) to fill in the blank on the black card.
After they have read all of the combinations, the Card Czar will choose which card they thought was the best. They can use whatever criteria they want to choose a card. The game recommends picking the card that leads to the funniest combination. The player who submitted the card chosen by the Card Czar, earns one Awesome Point. A way to keep track of Awesome Points is for the winner of the round to take the black card that was used for the round.
To start the next round a new player becomes the Card Czar. The game doesn’t specify how to choose the next Card Czar. Since all of the players should be the role the same number of times, you should probably pass the role either clockwise or counter-clockwise.
End of Game
There is no definitive end to Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition. Therefore the players should agree about when to end the game. To make the game fair for all players, each player should be the Card Czar the same number of times.
At the end of the game the players will compare the number of Awesome Points they received during the game. The player that earned the most Awesome Points, wins the game.
