Which cards are official Cards Against Humanity, which are Cards Against Alternia? Did you guess right? For shame.
I have, finally, received my full set of Cards Against Alternia cards. In the fifth image, you can see the comparison of cards, number-wise, between Cards Against Humanity (on the right) and Cards Against Alternia (on the left). CAA has about half as many cards, which is actually a really good ratio for the game. Though feel free to continue submitting cards, to ruin that ratio!
These will be making their debut this Saturday, 8/24, at Dad Egbert’s Cake Swap in San Jose, CA. Feel free to join for cake and debauchery!
I’ll be uploading the images for the cards and a bit of info on printing in the next few days, but I want to say two things:
1) BUY THE ORIGINAL CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY GAME. While you could, perhaps, play CAA without CAH, the fact is that CAH has some brilliant cards that just work with CAA. Not only that, but you’re supporting the makers of CAH, allowing them to spend more time on their game, perhaps releasing further expansions in the future. CAH is a Creative Commons game, which allows users to do things like this, but that doesn’t mean you should just bypass them and all their hard work. Give a little something back, should you choose to print.
2) Support Andrew Hussie! I made these cards for my own personal use, with the help of some very twisted friends, but this expansion would never exist if it weren’t for that brilliant man. Buy some shirts, buy some art, and DEFINITELY buy the OUTSTANDING music of Homestuck. Despite the opinions of some fans, he’s a remarkably tolerant man for having his copyright messed with, and I’d like him to not yell at me if he ever finds out I made this.
Now, after Cake Swap, I’ll be bringing these beauties to Sac Anime, where I’ll bust them out in the game room some night I’ve not yet determined (though likely Friday). If you want to join me, there’s something very special in store for you. I’ve got two prizes.
The first is a lovely quadrant-themed shirt, as seen in the last image. Only white. And I’ve swapped out the spade for a standard, non-dripping spade (the original shirt was a special one I made for myself, and have since de-branded, basically, for giving out, so it’s safe from copyright issues). The second is the original at-home printed version of CAA, which is so utterly terrible I’m kinda ashamed to give it out.
You can win by either drawing Kankri’s special card, as seen in the fourth image, or by being the player who has won the most rounds of the game by the time that the Kankri card is drawn. The highest-winner and the Kankri-winner will decide between themselves which they want and, if they can’t come to an agreement, the winner between them will be chosen in true Homestuck fashion.
Or a coin toss.
Probably a coin toss.
So come join me and, again, if you want to make your own set, I’ll be putting up some details in the next few days!
