Two Uni of Reading Graduates Have Made a New ‘Cards Against Humanity’
Unless you’ve been under a rock or on a Thai Gap Yah for the past few years, you’ve probably played Cards Against Humanity, bought the expansion pack and then bled its humour dry.
If that’s the case, you’re in luck. There’s a new card game in the form of Common Decency and it’s arrived just in time to break the ice at Freshers’ Week.
It was created by two University of Reading grads, James and Will. Or @JamesandWillieG as they’re known.
“The game came about on a boozy group holiday to Wales” James told me. After posting about their creation on Imgur they were taken aback by the response.
“We’re blown away by how well it’s been received! We had 50 in stock when I put a post up about it on Imgur 2 weeks ago. They sold out in a couple of hours and in the two weeks since, so have most of the 500 we listed for pre-order.”

Luckily they had a pack to spare and sent us one to test out.
Alcohol helps a lot, it is a “party game” after all. Red Stripe and G&Ts are optional, but did the trick for us.
How it works.
There are answer cards.
And question cards. Some inevitably sexual…
Others that will test your moral boundaries…
And then some that are little more family-friendly. But not many.
Everyone gets four question cards and one answer card, the aim is to lose all your question cards. You do that by correctly predicting who will answer your question with what’s on your answer card – but it’s easier to just learn while you play.
Most of the laughs come from encouraging people to elaborate on their “it depends” answers.
Ideal if you’re up for getting a bit drunk and learning more about a person beyond “what A-levels did you do?”
If you want to buy a pack they’re on sale here for just £14.
Buy one and be done with Ring of Fire once and for all.
