In other games we have produced for the RS Games Client, we have programmed computer players ("bots") that can serve as your opponent. Due to the nature of the game, we have not programmed bots, as they require a very high level of artificial intelligence. For the record, we have yet to find ANY computer game that allows you to play against a non-human.

Playing The Game

Cards Against Humanity is an easy game to learn. Everyone in the table is first dealt seven answer cards. These answer cards are answer cards. One player in the table is designated a "judge" for the round. The judge flips over a different kind of card, called a question card. The question cards are sentences containing one or more blanks that you fill in by choosing the best answer cards from your hand.

It is the job of all players who aren't a judge to pick one or more of their answer cards to go along the question card. Once all players have submitted their answer cards to the judge, the judge picks the best answer card that matches the question card. The judge may pick whatever card they wish, however, the official rules encourage the judge to pick the answer card that is the "most creative, humorous or interesting". The judge switches every round, every person will get the opportunity to be a judge. (Note that judges do not submit their own card). The winner of the round gets to keep the question card, they serve as score.

For example, lets say the judge flips over "Scenic". All the non-judges in the game are now presented with a menu, where they will choose the card they think is most appropriate. Once all the players have finished submitting their cards, the judge is now presented with a menu where he/she will choose their favorite match. The judge does not know who submitted what card, and whoever the judge picks wins the round. The winner keeps the question card, this is how the score is kept.

Winning The Game

The first person to accumulate 12 question cards wins the game. It is under consideration to adjust this number depending on how many players are in the game.
