• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A hilarious and offensive adult card game for 3+ players. Its official page can be found here.

The concept is similar to Apples to Apples: players draw a number of White Cards (containing words or phrases), while another player, named the Card Czar, draw a Black Card (containing a question or a phrase with at least one fill-in-the-blank space open for suggestions), and the players must submit their White Cards as answers. The difference is that here the answers must be the most inappropriate ones for the question presented, and both sets of cards are full of bizarre, scatological, politically incorrect, and just plain weird suggestions, all of it played for Black Comedy and Refuge in Audacity.

Extremely popular in fandom circles, due to the creators having released the game under a Creative Commons license, along with a blank PDFs version for customization purposes, making extremely easy to do themed decks running on fannish Self-Deprecation and meme humor. Some of the official expansions and boxes have also blank cards for this purpose. Many custom sets can be found and download in CardCast, but googling can bring you some.

ATT Notice: Those interested in arranging/playing private games on Pretend You're Xyzzy, or Decks Against Society post on this article's Discussion page.

And Now For Something Completely Different. Instead of listing the tropes that appear in the work, we're going to list all the cards, and identify the tropes, works, and other notable subjects in each one.

"Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."

  • Toilet Humour: the suggested method to select the first Card Czar is to choose the one who most recently pooped.
