Cards Against Humanity - Real vs Fake
SnoopS from Stuff and Things here,
Today im gonna be discussing the difference between Genuine and Fake "Cards Against
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
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).
