Cards Against Humanity has been famously living up to its name ever since its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter raised nearly four times its original goal in 2010.
A hysterical politically incorrect card game described simply as a “party game for horrible people”, the game has been one of the many successful tabletop games that’ve managed to work in a digital age — mostly due to its crass, adult content.
In case you’re one of the few unsullied people left in the world, the game’s mechanics involves presenting fill-in-the-blank statements, and playing a card with the funniest (often the most offensive) answers.
The best part of Card Against Humanity however is that the game is available under a Creative Commons license BY-NC-SA — you can use, remix and share the game for free, but you can’t sell it. You can literally download the game for free on their website or make your own cards like many have done before — there’s Pretend You’re Xyzzy, Crabs Adjust Humidity and more.
So it’s about time that someone made a Singaporean edition of the game. Thanks to Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) student Tan Yong Heng, he just did — for a wholesome school project no less.

Complete with Helvetica fonts and heavy cardstocks, his cards have been adapted to an elitist, complaining culture such as ours with references to MRTs, competitive education systems, ERP gantries and Lee Hsien Loong’s apparent secret sexual fetish. Amazing.
He hasn’t made any solid plans to sell it (he’ll need Cards Against Humanity’s permission first) but he did say that he might go for a crowdfunding campaign.
Nonetheless, it’s not like anyone’s preventing you from making your own clone game if you think you can be a lot funnier. Here’s how you can start making your own.
