Cards Against Humanity Reveals a Pink “For Her” Edition
Playtime may have evolved since we were kids, being much more tech-centered nowadays, but if you still enjoy playing games with your besties, you’ll surely have taken on a round or two of Cards Against Humanity. However, if you’ve ever felt like you couldn’t connect to the black version of the cards, then fear not! The game-makers have come to the rescue with a millennial pink version deemed Cards Against Humanity for Her, “Designed for women.” But beware: It will cost you $5 more than the regular ol’ version. And for a very good reason.
A parody of sorts designed in response to the “pink tax” (the added cost added to women’s products despite there being no actual added value), it’s pretty darn stellar when you get down to the motivation behind its conception.
It’s kicking up controversy with folks who don’t realize it’s a farcical (yet totally on-point) take on the ridiculousness women face while shopping, but as the game’s director, Jenn Bane, told Business Insider, “We decided that hey, it’s 2017, it’s time for women to have a spot at the table, and nevertheless, she persisted. That’s why we made Cards Against Humanity: For Her. It’s trendy, stylish, and easy to understand. And it’s pink.”
