No, you are not reading that title wrong. Crabs Adjust Humidity is an unofficial parody expansion for the epically popular Cards Against Humanity card game. There are already four expansions with 112 cards in each deck (which you can now buy as a set). This
June, expect Crabs to infest your game again with volume 5.
[Edit: Volume 5 is not shipping in June. Vampire Squid Cards told Purple Pawn via email that the new set is expected to launch sometime in mid-July, but nothing is official yet. The reason for the delay: counterfeiters. Vampire Squid Cards must changes to the game to make it more difficult to copy. A company in China managed to make detailed replicas that were printed on lower quality materials.]
The unofficial expansion cards are printed on linen finished casino-quality cards and feature the black-and-white card design similar to CAH. The main difference (other than the name) is the red icon at the bottom of each card.
Each 112-card pack contains 80 white and 32 black that are all 100 percent compatible with the original CAH game. In fact, Vampire Squid notes that you must have the CAH base game in order to play this unofficial expansion.
Volume 5 is set to launch this
June July and will probably be priced at $14.
It is important to point out that neither Cards Against Humanity, nor Crabs Adjust Humidity are family friendly. In fact, I would considered this game to be X-Rated. If you have a sensitive disposition, you probably don’t want to play either game.
I would consider a ‘sensitive disposition’ as someone who recoils from PG material. Recoiling from X-rated material is more common sense than sensitivity.
I know some distributors are showing June as the release date for v5, but that is inaccurate. We don’t have a firm date yet, I’m afraid.
Vampire Squid Cards is my company, and Crabs is our game, so I should know. :-)
