I got an email today from the folks who make the excellent game Cards Against Humanity. Last year at around this time they sold a holiday expansion pack, which I purchased before I even got the retail version of the base game and the expansions.
At 12:40 I got the email. I was in the middle of eating lunch at work. I shoveled chicken pot pie into my face with one hand, and started tapping out my order information with my other.
“What is it?” my co-worker asked.
“Hell if I know,” I replied.
Two minutes and $12 later I ordered my copy of whatever they’re going to send me.
Less than four hours later they’d completely sold out of 100,000 copies.
- The Cards Against Humanity company will send out 12 things per participant over 12 days, all arriving to US and Canada before the Christmas holiday season.
- I had to enter something nice I did this year (hosting Board Games and Burger Night).
- I had to enter something naughty I did this year (not reposting here).
- I paid $12.
That’s it! I wonder if the 12 things are cards crowdsourced from the naughty list. Exciting!
Even though they’re sold out, you can still visit the sign up site at Holidaybullshit.com or read the amusing FAQ.
