#TBT: Equestrian Cards Against Humanity

Remember when playing Cards Against Humanity was all the rage? We do. That’s why the party game for horrible people got an equestrian twist.

How does one best describe the game Cards Against Humanity? It’s kind of like Apples to Apples, if all the apples were sour — the all-grown-up, totally irreverent, discomfort-inducing version of the family-friendly card game. Played in a group, individual players take turns acting as judge, drawing a black card and reading it aloud. Black cards are a question or a sentence with blanks. The other players then submit white cards out of their own playing hands; the white cards are nouns that answer the question or fill in the blank. The judge selects what he or she thinks truly completes the statement and that submitter wins the point.

A safe-for-work tame example:

Each deck comes with a few blank cards so you can write in your own shenanigans … so imagine our delight when we discovered that Horse Nation readers were substituting in their own equestrian suggestions:

And we agreed with them that Cards Against Equestrians does, in fact, need to be a thing. So we came up with a few suggestions of our own, filling in our own white cards (the nouns) and pairing them with black cards from the game.

dear abby   dressage queens

drink to forget  no-stirrup november

hannah montana   barefoot

kids these days   FEI

santa   chestnut mares

smithsonian   bucked off

tsa guidelines   smartpaks

Of course, we could play the game the other way around, too, and fill in our own black cards … completed by white cards already in the game:

george morris   dark and mysterious

course walk   kool-aid man

switched   lunchables

this judge   pouty face

OTTB   prancing

true equestrian   crippling debt
