House of Cards Against Humanity is a ___________ For Your ___________.

By Vivian Kane | Trade News | February 11, 2014 | Comments ()


In anticipation of the return of House of Cards’ second season this Friday, Netflix has teamed up with the people at Cards Against Humanity for a pretty amazing marketing campaign. Apparently this is how it all went down:

Last month, someone in the Netflix marketing department had an epiphany: House of Cards and Cards Against Humanity both contain the word “cards.” When we got a phone call from Netflix, we enthusiastically agreed that the two products indeed contain the word “cards.”

For the uninitiated, Cards Against Humanity is the cruder cousin of Apples to Apples, where one person holds a black card and makes their friends scramble to appease them with the correlating white cards. It’s a competition of who can be funnier/raunchier/least sensical. It’s not my favorite game, but I would play the sh*t out of the House of Cards version 24/7.


If you get the “Forcing a handjob on a dying man” card, hold onto it. That one’s golden.

The game sold out pretty much immediately, but you can download the cards for free here.

Vivian Kane thinks the second Season of House of Cards is going to be completely __________.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    This post gave me a brief fantasy of an online Pajiba only game of CAH. And it was glorious. Sigh

  • Modernlove

    I got a set of these and I am super excited. CAH is hugely popular with the people I hang out with and even if they don't all watch HOC and get the jokes, they're still funny cards to have. Way to do cross-promotion right.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I just looked this game is it SO crazy expensive? Boooooooo

  • BlackRabbit

    I'm confused and have not seen the show: is the dying man the jobber or the jobbed?

  • FireLizardQueen

    This is brilliant cross promotion. But how many people will actually get it I wonder?

    I adore CAH, but this game is the best under certain sets of circumstances 1) alcohol must be involved 2) there should be 5-8 people playing more than that and it's too much and 3) at least 2 of those people should be relative strangers/new friends, it's a great way to find out what kind of sense of humor they have.

  • BWeaves

    I don't get it. Is it like Scatagories?

    What's Apples to Apples?

    I've looked them both up, and they sound boring. But I prefer party games where the players have to make things up, rather than play what's on a card.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Apples to Apples does indeed SOUND stupid, but it is really a lot of fun. It is the odd game that works with my 5-10 year old nieces & nephews and my 70+ year old parents, as well as at a raucous dinner party with my friends.

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    Apples to Apples (and CAH) are both great-- the creativity comes in the pairing of the card in your hand with the card on the table. Brilliance and idiocy ensue.

  • FireLizardQueen

    No, it really is a dirty, offensive, and funny version of Apples to Apples.

  • CAH is fantastic in the right crowd. I agree that alcohol is probably a necessary ingredient, but also you need to select your playing group wisely. One or two bleeding hearts could add spice to the game, but the rest of the players need to be raging misanthropists. Otherwise, it's likely people will get "OFFENDED" and the evening will end poorly.

    In other words, play it at your family holiday gatherings at your own risk.

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    Case in point, I have yet to meet a group that appreciates the Nazi card. Without fail I get a look that is like "Dude. Too soon."

  • Target_Blonde

    It's never too soon to the play the Nazi card (see what I did there?)

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I have not heard of Cards Against Humanity, but it sounds right up my alley.

    House of Cards I still haven't watched.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    I would watch the hell out of "House of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning."
