Playing card games is a great way to spend some quality time with family and friends. Unlike most board games and classic board games, card games do not require much time and effort to install as they do not have complex setups and can also be completed in minimal time. Moreover, not only can card games provide thousands of hours of fun and entertainment for everyone, but playing them is also a great way to improve your critical thinking and sharpen your memory. Now, while you’ve probably played or at least heard of the more conventional card games like spades and diamonds, as well as poker, blackjack, among many others, there are some truly unique card games out there that give a whole new meaning to the fun of playing cards in completely distinct and inventive ways. With that being said, if you’re an open-minded person looking for card games that are a little spicier and extra hilarious, then Cyanide & Happiness card games like Joking Hazard and Master Dater are outstanding choices to pursue.
Joking Hazard and Master Dater by Cyanide & Happiness are unconventional card games for adults that offer fun and confusing scenarios in which players compete against each other to try and create the funniest situations.
From the creators of the hit webcomic Cyanide & Happiness, which has over 11 million subscribers on the YouTube channel, these unique card games for adults are great for any game night you’re hosting with family and/or friends.
Now, let’s take a little more detailed look at each of these surprisingly quirky holiday card games and see how each one should be played.
Cyanide Joke Hazard and Happiness – Funny and Offensive Card Game
Joking Hazard is an extremely not-for-kids party card game from the brainchild of the hit cyanide and happiness in which 3 or more players compete against each other trying to use one of their cards to complete incredibly funny and gruesome, and sometimes hilariously comical styles.
HOW TO PLAY?
The rules for playing Joking Hazard are quite simple and the game can be played with a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 10 players who are at least 18 years of age or older.
First, everyone gets a deck of panel cards and a judge is chosen. The first panel of the comic is made by randomly drawing a card from the deck. The other deck is added by the judge deliberately laying down a card to create a specific scenario.
Once this is done, all players try to complete the current 2 card panel strip by adding a card from their hand, from which the judge will choose the funniest scenario.
The game box comes with a total of 350 high-quality comic panel cards, which are already printed, plus 10 cards to add your own words, if you have a good idea for one or want to write about some “silly” friends in the game in order to make fun of each other (in a friendly way and just for fun, of course).

Cyanide & Happiness Master Dater – Shuffle card game for dating
Master Dater is a messy and hilarious card game from Cyanide & Happiness in which players compete for each other’s attention and affection by combining a head card and a body card together to create perfect, cute, weird, or even terrible dating partner options that do their best to attract 3 very specific dating interests that are provided by the game’s judge.
This card game will take players on a weird and wonderful journey about love, in which everyone argues in the heart of the sexy bachelor. Play together with family and friends, defeat your rivals and win in love!
HOW TO PLAY?
The rules for playing Master Dater are simple and very straightforward, and the game can be played with a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 6 players who are at least 13 years of age or older.
First, the judge starts the round by sharing his choice of 3 specific dating interests with all players (or “Daters”). The judge’s interest cards can be dealt however they see fit, so they have to think long and hard when choosing their 3 chosen dating interests.
Players then look closely at these rough interests and figure out the best dating partner they can muster with their current head cards and body cards in order to appeal to one, two, or in the best case scenario, all 3 of these dating interests.
As a Dater, each player has several card options to choose from for the head and body of their ideal date that tries to match the 3 dating interests the game judge has given. Then, they simply have to argue their point and try to prove that the dating partner option is the one that best matches those dating interests.
The game box comes with 300 odd interest cards from which the judge chooses 3 specific dating interests each round to let players know more about the beautiful song, the heart they are trying to win, along with 230 head and body cards that players use to create the perfect date for that “sexy” single.
All cards are of a very high quality and are also spill resistant.
