Cards Against Humanity Descendant

Ever since last Christmas when I first played Cards Against Humanity I've wanted to play it again. While it was an odd thing, perhaps, to play at a multigenerational family Christmas gathering, we all had bundles of fun.
Recently I purchased my own set of cards and an expansion pack to play with my friends. We're talking about a girls' party sometime in the near future. It only takes four to play. I think I have that many friends.

Yesterday at Calontir's Fall Crown Tournament event I was able to buy the SCA descendant of that game. (My lucky benefit working the check-in gate table.) Duke Garrick spear-headed the creation, production and sale of "Crowns Amongst Nobility". By the end of the event, they were sold out.

Some question or fill-in-the-blank phrase cards include:
  • What don't you want to find in your pavilion in the morning? 
  • _____________ the ultimate aphrodisiac.
  • What's that smell?
  • If I could go back in time and re-create the SCA, I would get rid of _____________ and add ____________.
Answer cards may include:
  • Haggis
  • Blind King John of Bohemia
  • A mounted procession
  • Gates of Hell
  • A loaner cup
  • Spurs
  • Wattle and daub
These are just a sampling. Not all combinations are funny or ridiculous. But that is  true with the original game too. And some answers, like perhaps "Haggis", are funny almost anytime.

Besides fun for all, Duke Garrick presented the profits from the sale to the Kingdom of Calontir. A generous way to add to the depleted Kingdom coffers.
