Cards Against Humanity - Real vs Fake

Posted by Snoops420 30/06/2016 1 Comment(s)

G'Day Everyone,
SnoopS from Stuff and Things here,

 

Today im gonna be discussing the difference between Genuine and Fake "Cards Against
Humanity"  sets.

 

The differences I have noticed between a genuine set, and a counterfeit set i found on
ebay are :

  • Outside the Box
    The font on the outside of a genuine set of Cards Against Humanity is clear, well
    spaced, and easy to read. On the back of genuine sets, starting at version 1.5, there
    is a hologram on the back of the box that says "100% Genuine Corbs Agornst Hamamaty" and
    "100% Genuine Crads Againbst Blublaniby".
    NOTE: The version number is printed on the back of the box in the bottom right
    hand corner.
    On the fake set I have, the font on the box has a tighter spacing and, on some words,
    the ink in the letters bleeds together. The cards are more tightly packed into the box
    making it hard to get them all in if you add any extra cards at all. No hologram on
    the fake one, probably the best measure of if its genuine.
  • Card Quality
    The quality of card used in a genuine set of Cards Against Humanity cards is the
    same quality as a set of cards bought from a Casino.
    Where-as the quality of the Fake Cards Against Humanity cards is low to mid grade
    like a pack of cards found in a $2 shop, and will easily mark and bend, leaving you
    with "marked" cards making it easier to tell who played which card.
  • Water Resistance
    Genuine Cards Against Humanity cards have a coating that is water resistant, and
    as Cards Against Humanity is a great drinking game, and accidental spills happen
    the more you drink, it is best to have some water resistance to your cards if you
    plan on using them again and again.
    The fake Cards Against Humanity set I bought on ebay was not as water resistant,
    the cards seemed to wick up some of the liquid around the edges of the cards.
  • The Price
    A set of genuine Cards Against Humanity will set you back anywhere from $45 to
    $90 delivered, depending on where you buy it.
    I picked up a counterfeit set of Cards Against Humanity on ebay for $27 delivered.

 

In summary, if you plan on paying the game more than once, I would recommend buying
a GENUINE set of Cards Against Humanity for the following reasons :

  • Spilled drinks wont ruin your cards (Just wipe them off with a cloth or tissue).
  • The cards wont get bent or stained as easily as on the counterfeit set, making the game more
    fair for everyone playing.
  • Money goes to Cards Against Humanity, and not to some counterfeiter (If Cards Against Humanity
    make money they will keep bringing out great new card sets like the Jew, Food, and Geek
    Packs that came out in June 2016).

I just wanted to let you know that you were mistaken about one tiny thing. The hologram stickers were not on any version 1.5 or 1.6 sets. They began on all 1.7s.
