Embrace your inner obscenity with this easy-to-play adult game. Cards Against Muggles is the ultimate party game for horrible people. It is filled with offensive, crass, and generally nasty comments in the context of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter world.
A game for these times
You find yourself at a party with friends or acquaintances who you know little about or who you are not altogether familiar with. As it happens, you have exhausted all possible conversation topics. From the weather and football to the latest Hollywood blockbuster, and perhaps even the upcoming elections. You’d expect hours to have gone by, but you check your watch and realize that you’ve only been there for 30 minutes. Damn, it’s still too early to find an excuse to burst out of the place. You desperately wish that there was a game you all could play.
Party games among adults have evolved over time. Back in the day, our parents entertained themselves with games like Charades, Pictionary, and perhaps one of the many possible games of cards. Those were good times, and indeed they had fun. Modern game creators have, however, pioneered a new generation of offensive games to keep in touch with how depraved everyone can be today.
Cards Against Muggles is one of such games and is pretty much top tier. It is based on the more renowned Cards Against Humanity, the only difference being that it is set in the Harry Potter universe (where humans are referred to as “Muggles”).
Easy to play
Each pack of Cards Against Muggles contains 1356 cards (987 white cards and 369 black cards), so you can keep replaying as much as possible. Also, it is straightforward for all to play, even first-timers. One person picks a black card, typically containing the start of a sentence, and the other players fill in the blanks with their white card most funnily and awfully possible. The winner after each round is the player with the best response.
Not for the faint-hearted
Like many other adult games, Cards Against Muggles can get really risqué. It is laden with a lot of NSFW topics and offensive jokes, so I won’t recommend it for a family setting. Still, it makes for a little grown-up fun.
It is even more fun if you are playing with your fellow Harry Potter stans, as the jokes will seem more relatable. However, if you are not a big fan of the wizarding world, no problem. This What do you meme? party game is just as exciting!
