Alternatives to Cards Against Humanity
It’s happened to us all, at a work gathering, casual party or even at a regular game night. You need something light and quick to play and someone brings out that black, rectangular box. We’ve likely all played Cards Against Humanity (CAH) at a social/gaming gathering. And, if you’re like me, you’ve had to play it just one too many times now. I’m here with some suggestions for games that might not directly replace CAH, but are a great step to the side as far as fun/party-ish games that are ideal for casual gatherings or to cap off your night of board gaming. With some of these you can have as much dirty humour or as little as you like, and the rest offer a great way to interact with your friends without relying too much on creating humour but just straight up having fun. I can almost guarantee your friends and/or gaming group will thank you for introducing them to these games.
But Wait, There’s More!: I don’t know about you, but I am often rambling little infomercials off the top of my head for weird stuff. It slices, it dices.. Actually, no it doesn’t do any of that, it’s just a dirty sock on the

floor. With But Wait, There’s More! you as a group will be pitching the same product to the market, but each with a different twist. You’re representing your company pitching, say, a broom. Your broom could be self-propelled and you want to talk that up in your pitch to the table. But wait, there’s more! Oh yes, here is the chaotic fun – flip over a random trait and incorporate that into your pitch. Ah, my broom is self-propelled and also removes unwanted hair quickly and painlessly!
What I like most about But Wait, There’s More! beyond the hilarious fun you can have coming up with your pitches, is that everyone gets to play each round – there’s no ‘judge’ sitting there missing the creativity for that round. Everyone takes part, and once all the pitches are done, then each player hands out point cards to ‘vote’ who they thought had the better pitches. (And even better, you don’t tally points until the end of the game so there’s no pressure for those not doing as well which makes things far more fun!)
But Wait, There’s More! is published by Toy Vault Inc. It can play from 3 – 10 players, ages 14 and up, and takes approximately 30 minutes.
