Lobsters Aren't People is a comedy game for people who want to have great times laughing and hanging out with their best friends while making new friends. (Ages 17+ Recommended).

*NOTE: Lobsters Aren't People is an unofficial third party expansion pack for the legendary game Cards Against Humanity, it is in no way affiliated with Cards Against Humanity. If you don't already own this amazing game, please don't hesitate to get one at https://cardsagainsthumanity.com/. It is however designed to be played alongside Cards Against Humanity. 

You know how parties can be. Let's say you're hosting a party and your friends are bringing their friends and not everyone knows each other. I'm an engineer and stand-up comedian, so I have much experience with being in awkward social situations and getting people to talk and laugh. 

So it's a bit awkward at the party and everyone is kind of quiet, you gather everyone to the coffee table in the front room. Everyone grabs a cold one from the fridge, cracks it open and takes a seat on the couch. You're buddy puts on some music, now you got some Ice Ice Baby blasting over the speakers. 

You break out a deck of Lobsters Aren't People. You hand out the cards and you hear some quiet gasps and a couple of laughs from people reading their cards. The first round is played and as the dealer reads the cards, the room roars with laughter. 

Now the ice is broken, what was a room of quiet, uncomfortable people is now a group of friends enjoying the night together. Everyone is talking with each other, the conversation is now flowing. 

All of your guests are now a bit happier, in a great mood and enjoying each others company. The world just got a little friendlier. I absolutely believe that comedy brings people together and makes the world a bit better.

                                                TRIGGER WARNING

So be the hero who brings this deck to your next party!    

Game Play

There are two types of cards, grey question cards and red answer cards. 

The dealer places down a grey question card and the players choose a red question card that answers the question.

The dealer then chooses which card they deem the best answer and that player wins. 

The dealer position rotates each round. The person with the most best answers wins!

My experience in stand-up comedy was harnessed to create a game that will entertain you and all of your friends. To do so, I was sure to build a deck bursting with of all the witty, sarcastic and dark humor you could ever hope for. 

Just be prepared to laugh during all the awkward silences and gasps that result from playing THE most politically incorrect cards imaginable.

This pack is one of the largest unofficial expansion packs you can find. And at 110 cards, consisting of 89 red answer cards and 21 grey question cards, you and your friends are going to enjoy hours of laughter and shock.

Yeah, I hate when this happens too.
Yeah, I hate when this happens too.

My favorite thing to do is make other people laugh. I truly enjoyed creating this expansion pack that I have put immense effort and countless hours into to guarantee that you will crack up. 

I hope that you will enjoy playing this game just as much as I had creating it. And finally, I wish to give you a sincere thank you for helping to fund a piece of my dreams, you have no idea how excited I am to launch this Kickstarter Campaign!

Cheers!

P.S. 

So why is the funding goal $17,500? First off, Kickstarter has a 5% fee as well as a 3-5% payment processing fee. In addition, the manufacturer requires a minimum order of 750 decks due to the specific customization and style of the cards and the box they come in. Shipping to backers all over the country is also expensive. 

Any profits will be reinvested into Lobsters Aren't People for future decks as well as ordering more decks to meet the demand!

Yeah that's right, 3 inches. Not trying to brag or anything.

*To reiterate, this unofficial third party expansion pack is in no way affiliated with Cards Against Humanity™. If you have not already purchased a deck of the hilarious game of Cards Against Humanity please go buy it here first: https://cardsagainsthumanity.com/.

Risks and challenges

Challenges include this being my first Kickstarter project, shipping packages efficiently and in a timely manner to the many backers across the country.

I have meticulously planned for every foreseen circumstance so I do not expect any issues.

I am in communication with the manufacturer, therefore I shall know the progress and status of the decks as they are being produced.

I will be as transparent as possible and provide updates to keep everyone in the loop.
