Now before you go searching “Cards Against Humanity online game” be warned that the online version has been dubbed Cards Against Originality.
According to Mashable, Cards Against Originality is played exactly like Cards Against Humanity. While some may believe that there is legal trouble in the future for site creator Dawson Whitfield, rest assured, the online version is reportedly 100 percent legal considering the original game was released under a Creative Commons license, which according to Mashable, means that “anyone can remix it as long as they don’t resell it.”
For those out there who are unfamiliar with the game, Card Against Humanity plays much like the game Apples to Apples, though tends to take on much more adult theming. It is a multi-player card game where one person acts as a “judge.” The Judge asks the group a question from one of the black cards and the other players respond by using a term or phrase from one of their white cards. The judge then picks their favorite combination and the player whose card was chosen then “wins” the black card.
While fans everywhere have started to take advantage of the Cards Against Humanity online version, it has caused the site to lag and even crash quite a bit. According to Mashable, the creator of the site Cards Against Originality did acknowledge that the site is running “slower than usual” and did confirm that they are updating the site’s servers to better handle the increased amount of traffic. The site is said to hopefully be running at full capacity by the time the weekend rolls around.
