Holiday season is here, and Cards Against Humanity is in full spirit again, this year offering 10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa! For the slightly more expensive price than last year of $15 (vs $12 last year), I will once again be getting numerous gifts in the mail throughout the month of December. In true Cards Against Humanity spirit, for $3 extra, this year two less gifts as well!
Just like last year, I will be documenting the entire experience here on Pure Geekery. Spoilers lie ahead, so this is your one and final warning!
As of writing this piece on Monday evening, I have so far received the first 3 days gifts. Even though there’s less gifts this year, they’re coming out of the gate pretty strong so far.
Day 1 (arrived 12-05-14):
Front of day 1 envelope (address removed)
The effort put into the envelopes this hear is much higher than last year. They are completely in color, with a lot of detail. Just like last year, there will be a puzzle to go along with the gifts this year. Clues are hidden everywhere (including in the pictures on the envelopes). A special website dedicated to solving the puzzle can be found here. A video on the puzzle page states that this year’s puzzle is substantially more complex than 2013 puzzle, which took months before anyone actually solved it. Bonus points go to Trin Garritano for drinking one of the most delicious beers ever during her interview, Spotted Cow!
The holidaybullshit.com website has also been completely revamped for the 2014 promotion. On it you will find a video/picture to go along with each day, as well as a download link for each day’s envelope graphic (labeled “Today’s Wallpaper)”. As of writing this Monday evening, Day 2 just went live on the site, though I received it on Saturday, and also received Day 3’s gift in the mail today.
Enough about the the envelope and website though, you’re here about the gifts!
Day 1 Description Card
Personalized Black and White Cards
TWO PERSONALIZED CARDS! Upping their game from last year on gift number one, we now have both a black and white card with our name on it. One of the questions when registering for this year asked if we participated in last year’s event. For those that did not, they received a white card with just their name on it. For those of us who received this card last year, we received the above butt card.
Day 2 (arrived 12-06-14):
Front of Day 2 Envelope (address removed)
Day 2 Description Card
These reusable decal stickers are quality! Check out the video for Day 2 on the holidaybullshit.com website for some ideas on how to user your stickers.
Day 3 (arrived 12-08-14):
Front of day 3 envelope (address removed)
Day 3 card pack front of sleeve
Day 3 card pack back of sleeve
Day 3 card pack
10 shiny new holiday cards. These definitely are not the strongest cards I’ve seen in expansion packs, but if this is anything like last year, the cards will get better in later gifts. There’s a few solid ones in there at least.
That’s all I have to report for now. I’ll put up another post when I get 2 or 3 more gifts in the mail, like last year. Speaking of last year, if you haven’t seen my coverage of 2013’s 12 Days Of Holiday Bullshit, check it all out at the links below!
