If you’ve ever played Cards Against Humanity, you know the game isn’t for the weak hearted. It’s packed full of vulgar, offensive jokes, and if you get upset easily, it’s probably not the game for you. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the company that makes the game is just as wild and creative as the game itself is. Because if this company likes anything, it’s wild hijinks, that’s for sure.
In 2014, Cards Against Humanity sold special edition “Bullshit” on Black Friday, which was literally just poop in a box (and yes, they actually sold out). Earlier this year, the company threatened to buy and publish Congress’s browsing history if Trump signed a bill taking away Internet privacy (let’s be real, that wouldn’t look good for Senator Ted Cruz). And now, Cards Against Humanity has done it again: this time, they bought a plot of land along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop Trump from building the wall.
The company wrote:
Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.
It’s all part of their holiday promotion, which they openly admitted to. For $15, customers could help save America and also receive 6 surprise presents during the month of December, the first being a map of the land Cards Against Humanity purchased.
Say what you want, but honestly, this is a pretty inventive promotion and you know it’s going to get a lot of people talking. In fact, a lot of people are pretty in love with it.

I just gave $15 plus tax to @CAH because honestly at this point what could literally be worse than dying because our president called an insane person short and fat. https://t.co/Fuc48DGMGJ

I don’t have a US shipping address so how about including the option to gift this to a randomly selected senator or congressperson?

Honestly, I can’t blame the company for pulling such a bold move. Everything is already terrible, so we might as well do what we can to keep it from getting worse. Sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands.
If you want to be part of the promotion, sadly, you’re a little late — there was only a limited of slots open, and they’re now officially sold out. But hey, that doesn’t mean you still can’t love the concept and support the company however you see fit.
