NAME CHANGE!: We had to change our name from Cards Against Inhumanity to Inhumanity Stinks! This new name is not only fun, but will ensure that we can keep producing our game.
Sometimes my friends and I get together and play this game - Cards Against Humanity - A game for horrible people. (Unfamiliar with CAH? Go here.) It’s a game that most of us think of as pretty fun. I’ll admit I’ve enjoyed playing it. It’s fun to shock people and come up with associations that are clever and horrible.
But if we want to be honest with ourselves – really honest - we know that kind of fun can be cruel. It can make others feel bad. It can put others down. I’ve thought about this a lot and decided that’s just not what I want to do. Not anymore.
See, I’ve been paying attention lately. There are two camps setting up shop around the world... one that demoralizes and vilifies other people, encouraging ignorance and spreading hate. And then there’s one that urges us all to come together, without tearing others down or perpetuating harmful ideas. That’s the movement I want to be part of...
I want to make the world a better place - and this is my contribution.
Inhumanity Stinks! is a commentary on the insensitivity of the original game. It's not for horrible people. It’s for really nice people, who want to celebrate what they love, come together in kindness and have a good time with people of all backgrounds.
It’s for those of us who are starting to get a little uncomfortable with entertaining ourselves at the expense of others. I think we can make a card game that’s just as clever, without the cruelty.
We're starting with a pack of 200 cards - 160 light blue, 40 dark blue (dimensions: 63mm x 88mm). That's what you get if you pledge at the official game level or higher and if we hit our goal of $3,000. If we exceed our funding level, we'll add more cards!
$6,000 Pledged = 250 cards total (200 light blue, 50 dark blue)
$10,000 Pledged = 300 cards total (240 light blue, 60 dark blue)
$15,000 Pledged = 350 cards total (280 light blue, 70 dark blue)
$20,000+ Pledged = 550 cards total (460 white, 90 blue)
If this is the kind of game you’d want to play please contribute to our Kickstarter campaign. Every donor who contributes at least $10 will receive a downloadable/printable copy of the game. Give more and you can get the official original edition, professionally printed upon release (plus some other cool stuff).
Have ideas for words and phrases to add to the cards? GREAT! Submit them on our website at AgainstInhumanity.com
