This review is from: Cards Against Humanity: First Expansion (Toy)
Cards Against Humanity is easily one of the most entertaining adult party games in recent memory. Think Apples to Apples, but less "family-friendly." Gone are the boring comparisons that made Apples to Apples (and the sequel Sour Apples) fun but dull. Instead, Cards Against Humanity pulls out all the stops and is filled with very adult (and completely politically incorrect and often simply hilarious) cards.
If you're not familiar with Apples to Apples, here's how the game works:
Players take turns being the "Chairman" and draw one black card that has a statement on it (Example: "Before I kill you Mr. Bond, I must show you ______________."
The other players in the game then take turns playing one white card (they keep 10 in their hand at all times) that they think best completes the phrase. The chairman picks their favorite, and the player that played that card receives one point. Game play continues and the first player with five points wins.
Now, as I mentioned, Cards Against Humanity is, well, politically incorrect. A few examples of the content of the cards are: "Jews," "Adderall," and "Balls." (Those are some of the more tame answers --to make it better there are even blank cards included so you can add your own responses.)
This expansion pack adds additional white and black cards to the original deck. If you've gone through the entire original, or just need to add more offense to your game, it's a steal for $10. The cards are printed on standard playing cards and are good quality and perfect for the game.
The only caveat is that you shouldn't buy this if you printed the original cards for the website (rather than purchased them before Amazon sold out online). The cards for the original deck (as available in PDF on the Cards Against Humanity website) are much smaller than those included with this expansion pack. If you haven't played the game yet, or if you have the self-printed cards already, wait for the professionally printed version to be restocked and then buy it and the expansion deck.

It's not five points to win. The rules don't actually contain a score maximum :)
