    Meh, I’ve played a CAH a few times, locally and once at WIS2 with a roomful of people in various states of inebriation, and I just don’t get it. My sense of humour must be too non-standard — I find myself going “Huh?” while everyone else is laughing at the winning cards.

    One piece of advice: don’t allow parents and their grown children in the same game. Trust me, it gets a little weird….

    How many people does one need?
    ’cause I’ve just realised that most of my meat-space friends
    might not
    the fun
    Now I’m sad.

    The game is played very simply (so it can be played in various forms of high) Every player draws a “hand” of 5 white “answer” cards. Going around the table, each player takes turns being the dealer/judge. The dealer/judge turns over a black “question” card. Then all the players except the dealer/judge give the dealer/judge a white card that they think is the best answer to the question card. The dealer/judge then does a dramatic reading of the question and its answers and decides which is best; the best answer wins the round. Continue until bored or sober.

    When I’ve played we’ve done “dealer’s choice” where the dealer is allowed to come up with variants in their round, such as: pick 3 more cards and your answer has to come from those 3, and the remaining 2 get discarded. Or each player has to do their own dramatic reading. Or stealing cards from the deck is OK but if you get caught you’re disqualified (“tea party rules”) etc.

    It’s exactly like “Apples to Apples,” but definitely not for kids.

    When I played it, I came to two conclusions:
    1) It would be lots of fun with the right group of people
    2) I would never be one of the right group of people
