House of Cards Against Humanity released in time for Friday premiere

February 10, 2014|By Mick Swasko, @swasko | RedEye

"Power, politics, passive-aggressive handjobs and other scenes that we can never unsee." 

That's how the makers of Chicago-based Cards Against Humanity describe the 25-card expansion--an ode to Netflix's original series "House of Cards"--for their popular and often politically incorrect card game. 

"Last month, someone in the Netflix marketing department had an epiphany: 'House of Cards' and Cards Against Humanity both contain the word "cards," the description of the expansion reads on houseofcardsagainsthumanity.com. "When we got the call from Netflix, we enthusiastically agreed that the two products indeed contain the word 'cards.' " 

The company is offering one pack per person for free by mail, or a free download to print at home. 

It's not the first time the "party game for horrible people" has given things away for free. While the starter deck of cards costs $25, it can be downloaded and printed at home or at a printing depot for free. Additionally, the company allows users to create their own expansion decks for free. 

Season 2 of "House of Cards" will be released on Netflix in full Feb. 14.
