Cards Against Humanity, the Toronto version

Posted by Derek Flack / April 17, 2014

Cards Against Humanity TorontoCards Against Humanity, the wildly popular party game, has had its fair share of imitators since being launched via a Kickstarter campaign back in 2011, but an unofficial Toronto version of the game (which many argue is itself based on Apples to Apples) is a new development that might interest local experts and those who've played the original one so often that it's impossible be shocked by it anymore.

Cards Against Humanity TorontoThe work of Scotty Graham, who also designed those Rob Ford Valentines so many of us snickered at, from what I can gather, the Toronto-fied game is decidedly more PG than Cards Against Humanity, but perhaps that's to be expected given the municipal subject matter. Or not. You can count on a few Rob Ford funnies to dial up the lewd factor and plenty of opportunities to make fun of our various neighbourhoods.

Cards Against Humanity TorontoCards About Toronto costs $25 and is available through the designer's website. If you're looking to purchase Cards Against Humanity in Toronto, head on over to Snakes and Lattes.

The idea of these cards is nice. I think it would be a nice expansion to the current Cards Against Humanity.

I don't like how these cards appear as a completely new game due to difference in design, such as the rounded cards, different font type and placement. Plus the "scotty2naughty" logo at the boottom of each card is pretty obnoxious.

Hey Toronto,
Just want to make something clear: Cards About Toronto has nothing to do with Cards Against Humanity and you cannot buy Cards About Toronto (or Crabs Adjust Humidity, another unofficial knockoff) at Snakes & Lattes. We only sell the real thing.

"hipster niche"

I love how you can instantly spot the people who have never played Cards Against Humanity.

The Valentine's Day cards are really, really terrible. Do you think we want to throw our hard-earned money at this lame and horrific merchandise? How long do we want to deal with the same old jokes about our status quo. Sorry, the whole thing is depressing. Enforced questions about our shameful state of affairs....Are these people insane?

You know, I might actually get these if I could mix them in with regular cards against humanity.

Oh will all of you stop complaining. Have a laugh. I just bought the set off of this guy. I have the entire set of CAH and I love it. If someone wants to make a "Cards Against Toronto" - let them! I'm certainly going to play it and have a laugh.

After all - our city has become a joke anyway. Thanks to Fordie.

Lol at the haters. This is great. I'll be buying a pack and playing all summer. Can't. Wait.

These cards are not only incompatible with regular CAH but are a propriety version of a pre-existing open-source card game. Obviously, this is an egregious violation of the 4 essential freedoms which users of card games should always have.

The social system of the distribution of this game is unethical. Proprietary card games should not exist and should not be used.

Thanks for accusing me of being a shill just because I'm not bashing it -_-"

Difference here is original Cards Against Humanity are open source and FREE if you download them. Don't think it's very cool to rip off someone else's idea and profit. Least he could do if offer free downloadable version to keep the spirit of the game.
