We finally broke into our Bigger Blacker Box set the other day. It’s the complete set with the base Cards Against Humanity set plus all four expansions plus the cards from the Holiday Bullshit. I ended up buying a second set after Brian spilled red wine on our original set with the first three expansions so now we have two CAH sets.
It actually worked out because we had several friends over on Friday night. We had more people than could fit in one table. So we actually had to use both sets. We had so many people here to play CAH that a third game actually broke out. Thankfully, Hideki and Andrea brought their set over so the third group used that deck. Hideki bought the Holiday Bullshit last year too so their set had all the HB cards as well.
Here’s a picture of first table without Faith because she was singing karaoke downstairs at first. Also not in the photo is Misty, who opted to be a spectator.
Misty played vicariously through Tammie.
Here’s another picture of table one after Faith joined in. You can see the back of her head here in the lower right corner.
Here are the folks at table two.
They look so serious in this photo, you’d think they were playing poker or something. LOL. But don’t let the picture fool you. This was the loud table.
While I was trying to figure out where to put the third group, our smart friends figured it out for themselves. The ottoman turned into a makeshift table and our house turned into CAH central for the evening.
Misty wasn’t the only non-player, though. Jake, Christina, and Joel didn’t want to play either. They preferred to have an orgy in one of our spare bedrooms. Okay, so it’s technically just a threesome. I’m kidding! I’m kidding! I don’t think anything sexual happened (that I know of anyway).
Most people left around 11-ish. After everyone left, we had enough people for one more game to we played until it was safe enough for people to drive home. Brian made coffee, which went really well with the red velvet mini cupcakes that Carla brought over. Darcy won our last game. I’m thinking beginner’s luck. That or she was cheating by colluding with other players. LOL.
By 30 after 2 am everyone had left and we were by ourselves. Brian wanted to just go to bed, but I managed to talk him into helping me pick up a little bit. I can’t sleep when the kitchen is super messy and there’s open food containers laying about. I feel like it’s going to attract gremlins who will have a food fight while we’re asleep and then there’ll be a bigger mess for us to clean up in the morning.
By the way, the funniest part of Friday night to me is that neither Brian nor I recognized Jake (Christina’s friend who we met for the first time the previous weekend). Brian was like, “Do you know who that guy is in the yellow with glasses?” He was pointing at Jake who looked like he was making a plate or checking out the food in the kitchen. “No,” I replied. “We need to figure out who he belongs to,” Brian concluded a bit concerned. I wasn’t worried. I was sure he belonged to someone; otherwise he wouldn’t have been here. A little bit later we realized who he was and all was right with the world again. Brian, who is overly cautious and paranoid at times, was able to resume being his relaxed self. LOL.
Anyway, our friend Jay always says that the sign of a good party is when you meet people you’ve never met before. Or, when you see people at the party that you haven’t seen in years. Both then to happen a lot around here. Overall, I think it was a success. The only disappointment for me is that I forgot to ask everyone about couples dodgeball! Ugh.
