Let’s be honest, Cards Against Humanity is getting kind of old — especially if you’re playing it sober all the time. Thankfully, there’s a whole bunch of adult card games available that will assure a great time of fun with your friends! And no, not all of them are drinking card games. In fact, some of these games require you to think quite a bit about your actions if you intend to win. So do read on for a quick introduction to our selection of the best adult card games available!

1. Unstable Unicorns

Unicorns are your friends now. Unstable Unicorns (available on Receesoon Fashion) is an adult card game that pits players against each other in a rat race to collect seven unicorns to win.

With each round, players get to invite a new unicorn into their stable or sabotage their friends!

Admittedly, this party game does have a bit of a learning curve as players have to be aware of how each card relates to another. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll enjoy hours of building your unicorn army!

If you’re expecting cute little kitties, think again. Exploding Kittens (available on Fwah Singapore) is a simple adult card game that mostly requires players to draw cards with each round.

Like a ticking time bomb, you and your friends will be using certain action cards to shift the chance of drawing the Exploding Kitten to the next player. It’s also a great party game if you don’t like to think too much during your turn.

The first player to ten winning cards wins! But of course, these questions are quite slanderous or defamatory. So the more your answers match up with your friends, the more disturbed they think you are as an individual. The question to ask at the end of the game is, are you really an angel?
