Sunday Funday!!!!

A Great Game to Play
Stuff I Did When I Should Have Been Working

I was at work the other day and the power went out in our building. You really don’t realize that you can’t do anything work-wise without power until you don’t have any. We all circled around for a while, a little lost and basically seeing who would be the first to say, “Fuck it, I’m outta here.” Then, my dear friend, we’ll call him X, said, “Hey, I’ve got a game in my car we can play while we wait for the power to come back on.” Sounded like a fun idea, why not?

The game X brought in was Cards Against Humanity – a Party Game for Horrible People.

I was like, “Hey, we’re horrible, let’s do this.”

Here’s the blurb straight from their site:

What is Cards Against Humanity?

Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.

The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.

Sound like fun? It IS! It basically offends any and all people. When we played we had just about every race, religion and orientation at the table. No one was off limits and it was awful and it was great. It started out a little awkwardly, I mean, we were at work. One girl was a little uncomfortable reading the cards out loud. I suppose when the card you have to read says “Pac-Man uncontrollably guzzling cum” you might get a little squicked out. I volunteered to read for her, I’m a giver that way. It didn’t take long though to get over the uncomfortable and pretty soon cards were being acted out and read in an epic voice-over manner.

My absolute favorite part was when these cards were played.

Who’s white card was that??? . . . . This gal!

It was like kismet. Because you see, I had just finished reading this story.

Galileo's Alien Gangbang

Lovingly recommended to me by our own Rainbow Stallion. I kind of feel bad for the guy on the cover. I don’t have the words to go into that book here, but I did here . . .

Of course, I could not stop laughing. There was one guy at the table who couldn’t stop cracking up either. We then had to explain to everyone else what tentacle porn was. My poor fellow chuckler started describing before he realized he was actually talking out loud and revealing to us all his expansive knowledge of tentacle porn. I kept giving him the side-eye just to make him uncomfortable, which was also fun. I like to think we all learned a little that day.

So, Cards Against Humanity, highly recommended fun times.

  • Should you play at work? Probably not.
  • Should you play with family? Depends on your family, but also, probably not. (I’m totally playing with mine though.)
  • Should you play if you are easily offended by anything ever? No, this is the part where you run away like you’re on fire.
  • Should you play while drinking with your friends? F’ing A right you should! That is exactly when you should play!


Bonus stuff from RJ Scott, be a dear and do the poll, thank you!
"Readers... I have a question for you... I am planning 2014 and have been speaking to fellow authors about marketing plans and so on... The question I have is... How do you know when I have a book going onto Amazon & other third parties? Or indeed how do you keep an eye on any of your authors?

Do you check specifically for the authors you like? See what books are on review sites? Do you find out direct from me via FB or my blog? Do you see what goes on a publisher's site and wait for it to go to Amazon? Is it word of mouth?

How can authors communicate better with you?

From the answers I received I came up with a simple tick box questionnaire."


  1. I've had maybe a dozen people recommend this game to me. MUST PLAY IT. And tentacle sex FTW!!

    I love playing a version of Apples to Apples that I call Apples to Apples Truth or Dare. It has led to many things in my various apartments, among them mooning off my fire escape and offering hugs to strangers at 2AM. =)

  2. HAHAHA! Love it! I'll have to remember that version of Apples to Apples. It just became WAY more fun :D!
