About


What is Cunning Linguist?

Created by the dorks who created Mobscenity, Cunning Linguist is an adult card game where players fill in the blanks to create horrible definitions. The game includes 550 cards (150 black, 400 white), instructions, and in a nice box.

How do you play Cunning Linguist?

Like Cards Against Humanity, every round, the Round Master plays a Black Card. However, as opposed to sentences, the Black Cards provide a definition with some blanks:

All the other players have 10 White Cards that they use to fill in the blanks. Some cards have 1 blank and some have 2.

The Round Master chooses the funniest definition and the person who played the card(s) wins the round and gets a point.

Can I use my Cards Against Humanity cards with Cunning Linguist?

Absolutely. Cunning Linguist cards are 100% compatible with Cards Against Humanity.

Is your game different?

Well - yes and no. We are using many of the same game elements used CAH, Apples to Apples, etc. However, the definitions approach provides a whole new spin on twisted.

Cunning Linguist has an additional game option we call "Sing for your Dinner." If you are the winner of the round and win the black card, you can win an additional point by using the term on the card in a sentence that you say out loud to the other players. If the round's master likes your sentence, you get an extra point.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk with any new game is getting the product printed quickly at a high quality. Cunning Linguist will be printed by the same printers of Cards Against Humanity. They are also the printer of Mobscenity and many other great games.

There can be delays in printing, but as soon as we meet our minimum raised money amount, we will start printing.
