Second Look—Crabs Adjust Humidity

Second Look - Boardgame reviews in depth. Check out that cat.

Back in October I posted about the Crabs Adjust Humidity: Omniclaw Edition, the collection of 5 volumes of the 3rd party Cards Against Humanity expansion. Vampire Squid Cards was kind enough to send me the boxed set and I had a chance to bring it to a holiday party and see how the cards stack up.

This boxed set makes a horribly-fun game just as horrible.

VSCCAHOEThere’s some great cards in this set, and there were plenty of times were drinks were spilled, or spat out, while trying to read the cards people played. The Omniclaw Edition contains 560 cards, and no rules. It’s meant to supplement Cards Against Humanity, but this edition contains enough to play on it’s own. Keep in mind, there’s no blank cards in here.

It’s got a hefty price tag of $50, which is double what that CAH base set costs with only 10 cards less. Still, if you’re a fan of the game you owe it to yourself to grab these and expand upon all the horrible and offensive.

A copy of Crabs Adjust Humidity was provided free for review by Vampire Squid Cards.

Crabs Adjust HumidityNo, 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.
