Review and Unboxing: Cards Against Humanity: The Bigger, Blacker Box

OK, so it’s been a long, long, long while…

Best start off with something good then.
Yesterday, I received something interesting in my Parcel Motel. (Review about them some other time!)
I’ve been playing Cards Against Humanity now for around a month.

I’d started small, with just the core UK box, but very quickly I added the 4 full expansions.
I finally wanted to organise them, and ended up getting whats known as The Bigger, Blacker Box.

What have we here?

It arrived into my Parcel Motel, where I picked up the longest package I’ve ever handled. (Hurrr… We’re going to have jokes like that for the rest of this article. Prepare yourselves accordingly.)

Oh, Hello!
Oh, Hello!

I wasn’t disappointed by what turned up when I opened it. It was well packed, with air-pockets protecting it well.

As the wind blows…
Free!

The outside, was as advertised, bigger and blacker than the main box. How much bigger? Well… the core box measures about a foot long. At 21 inches, it can definitely handle a bigger load. (I did say it got worse. You were warned!)

Once you get the top off, you get a glimpse of confusion and then you get a greedy feeling at what lies in front of you. a large, gaping space to fill full of your fumbled, greasy cards.

Contents wise, the guys at Cards Against Humanity really excel. Aside from a big box to store your cards and expansions, you get 10 hard plastic dividers, foam filler,a box expansion and more blank cards. 50 in total, 10 black and 40 white.

In case of the box expansion, I didn’t understand what this was at first. What it actually is, is 20 box themed cards for Cards Against Humanity.

Foamy Goodness?

The foam filler blocks are there in case you lack some expansions. The fact is, the box is bigger than all the currently released expansions, and then some!

I’ve ended up using 2 blocks, the dividers and more cards as filler.

Overall, I expected a high quality experience, and this didn’t disappoint. There are surprises still to find, but I’ll let you find out for yourself. Just don’t be afraid to dig for it!

On Progress…

For starters, please read the following link at The Register.

I find it utterly amazing that there are people out there that take the time to actually research techniques to circumvent technology and people’s attempts to circumcise just what knowledge is good for us.

While the article is negative in its descriptions of the ‘hack’, it does come across with a sense of wonder that folk are able to do this kind of thing.

Amazing, really, seeing as it’ll end up using the accounts to tell people their bits are too small…
