Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is despicable and awkward and now we’re getting a South African update.


Cards Against Humanity is originally an American party game in which players complete fill-in-the-blank statements using words or phrases typically deemed as offensive, risqué or politically incorrect printed on playing cards.

The game is available as a free download that players can print to create their own cards, and also available to purchase as a published hard copy.

The game was created by a group of Highland Park High School alumni as a party game for a New Year’s Eve celebration.

But one South African, Jonathan Berkowitz, has decided to ‘crowd-create’ our own version with colloquialisms and slang that only a Saffa would understand. The entire game will also be available to download for free.

“The same old game you know and love, made even more lekker.”

“The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.”

“Just don’t play the race card.”

Submissions are already flowing in, making the content hilariously South African, like the questions (white cards) below:

“Best content for hockey Whatsapp group…”

“This week on Carte Blanche, we uncover ______.”

“Madam Speaker, Point of order! Point of order! We MUST discuss _________.”

And the answers (black cards) are just as funny:

“Seven hundred and sixty nine, eight hundred and. Seven hundred. Listen properly… seven hundred and sixty nine thousand, eight hundred and twenty. And seventy.”

“Kurt Darren”

“Our system is currently offline”

“Saxonwold Shebeen”

You can head over to their website to get more information or add your own one-liners to the hilarious card game.
