Giant Bomb & Cards Against Humanity Team Up

And humanity doesn't stand a goddamn chance.

In case you missed it during our PAX Prime 2012 panel, we recently announced a loving, trust-based partnership with our friends behind the incredibly distasteful parlour game Cards Against Humanity, with a limited-edition Giant Bomb-themed expansion pack as the expected fruit of this eldritch coupling. For those not already familiar with Cards Against Humanity--either from its multiple Thursday Night Throwdown appearances or its generally increasing cultural profile--it's essentially Apples to Apples or Mad Libs, but calibrated with Swiss precision for a nuclear brinksmanship level of offensiveness. So, you know, right up our alley.

As with the core Cards Against Humanity experience, crowdsourcing ideas for new cards for our expansion pack is an important part of the process, which is where you come in. There's a special page already up at Cards Against Humanity Dot Com where you can submit your stupid ideas--ideas that we will, no doubt, mock derisively when the Giant Bomb and Cards Against Humanity staffs (staves?) meet up to decide which cards will make the cut.

Feel free to submit any of your favorite Giant Bomb references, or just whatever funny, absurd, random, offensive thing that springs to mind, though know that one of our main goals here is to make an expansion worthy of one of our favorite games that'll be fun to play, even for those who don't know why that deer is wearing a wrestling mask, and don't care. (Example: me!)

Either way, whoever wins, we lose.

Maybe I should get this when it's out. I don't have a deck yet.

I love how this is filed under Baditude, given the recent debate.

If this isn't in the deck, I'm gonna be really disappointed.

Posted by Ironlink

So, will this be available outside USA and Canada? I find it quite ridiculous that they wont let Amazon ship their cards anywhere else.

Posted by papercut

Why is this attached to Baditude ?

Already thinking of some good (horrible) submissions. My only thing is I wish the submission page had a few more options like a checkbox to signify if you're writing a white or black card, do you write one card idea per submission, etc.

I'll try to not post stupid GiantBomb memes!

I'm assuming Patrick has biggest, blackest dick covered? Screw it I'm using it again.

Posted by ElixirBronze

Contributed with "Big ass ramp". don't know if it's funny or not just something half-related to giant bomb.

Posted by Mordi

Should find some way to incorporate Big Jeffrey into this.

That card should just have that image -- no text.

Posted by myketuna

"Naked cartoon pussy" must be a white card.

Not too sure about a black card. I really don't want to make it to "in-joke-y" because then no one but the community would "get" it.

Posted by jonnyboy

"Seven Hundred and Seventy Five Million Dollars."

This works on two levels. I love it.

"I'm __________, and that looks fucked up."

Posted by Random88

Here are the ones I just submitted

White Cards

- Never being able to look your dog in the eyes again.

- Lauging outside an orphanage

- Breaking into a zoo to steal a monkey

- Your right hand turning into a girl

- Throwing a bottle of piss at singers you don't like

Posted by notdavid

Is "WUB WUB WUB" already a card? Because I just now took care of that.

Posted by Redhorn

Too bad that I can't get credited for all of my unspeakably genius submissions. ;_;

Posted by soralapio

When you submit stuff, does the page just reset for anyone else? Am I supposed to get some kind of "way to go, you submitted stuff" page or is it working as intended?

Posted by m2cks

I contributed with "beating 100%" and "Jurassic Park dubstep". I'll have to listen to more bombcasts to get more ideas, haha.

NOTHING STOPS THE GAME ROOM QUICK LOOK. Well, nothing except for _________

That's what happens for me too, seems to be as designed.

I can't wait to watch the video content of the GB / Cards guys debating and choosing the submissions.

  • An unnecessary hemorrhage.
  • Forgetting to bring your phone to the bathroom when you poop.
  • Defying the laws of physics.
  • George Brett's pine tar bat.
  • The swollen breasts of a woman pregnant with quintuplets.
  • A white man trying to dance.
  • Sleep apnea.
  • Trying to find a good pizza place at 3am.

  • MC Hammer
  • Realising that you're outnumbered by people of the opposite race.
  • The Jewish Diaspora.

EDIT: Didn't read the whole post, if I had I'd know that this isn't the place to submit ideas. But here's what I came up with, if you think there are any winners in there let me know and I'll submit the best ones.

I still need to buy Cards Against Humanity. It's always out of stock /sadface

I want to apologize in advance for the numerous card ideas regarding the ER:P4 I will no doubt send in the near future.

Posted by TwoGunsABlazin

Here's hoping the community can come up with something better than what Ryan had on last weeks Bombcast!

works better as a black card really

Posted by MrKlorox

Do I post multiple in one submission? Or do I make a submission for every single idea?

Edited by iAmJohn

"Why is that deer wearing a wrestling mask?" would be a pretty funny black card, FYI.

Posted by WJist

I love everything about this stupid goddamn website and what stupidity it makes possible. CAH IDEAS SUBMITTED

Posted by UnderWing

I did the necessary submissions of "Face and Neck Stabbings", "Mysterious Fox", "Peter Molyneux", "Peter Molyneux's Balls", and "Unconditional Love". Low-hanging fruit, mostly, but they needed to at least be on the list.
