Now you can play Cards Against (Toronto) Real Estate

Posted by Derek Flack / May 22, 2014

Cards against real estate torontoCards Against ________ is quickly becoming a fad in Toronto. Building off the now iconic design of the original game, local companies are tailoring the content to our city -- and, most recently, to our real estate market. In the wake of Scotty Graham's Cards About Toronto, we now have BuzzBuzzHome's playful attack on local real estate cliches.

Designed by 88 Creative, the slender deck will immediately look familiar to fans of Cards Against Humanity. Just how funny the game is probably depends on how interested you are in the housing/condo market. While not all jargon, it's definitely targeted toward development nerds (there's even a pot shot at Urban Toronto in there).

Cards against real estate torontoIf you're stuck renting a basement bachelor on minimum wage, the potential humour will just be irksome. Case in point, a black card that reads: "Forget infinity pools, this year's hottest condo amenity is _______!" On the bright side, if you're lucky enough to have the white card that reads "Dog shit in the hallway," maybe there's hope after all.

The cards aren't currently available for retail sale, but if you pester BuzzBuzzhome enough, they'd probably give you a set.

Correction: In a previous version of this post, we referred to Scotty Graham's set as Cards Against Toronto when they are in fact called Cards About Toronto.

Agreed Reed, cheap and inefficient way to market imo.

Buying this is going to keep money from my actual down payment for a house where I'll play the REAL real estate game.

Every dollar counts!

Seems like a social media ploy to get people to tweet at them.

Oh yes, the bubble is caused by feminists. Global climate change and adolescent acne, too. Damn feminists and their evil schemes.

Scooby you need to calm down on the Scooby Snacks. You are interfering with the cougars and cat women from purchasing their home where they can hoard cat food.

Looks like fun. Maybe we should get some of those for the Vancouver market. http://vancouvertownhouse.ca/
