Oh, The Horror! Brings Goofy Horror to Card Games

It’s always fun when comedy and horror have a little get together, but usually it’s in games or movies. Oh, The Horror! seeks to bring comedic horror to card games.

The idea of the game is simple, and not too different from the popular party card game Cards Against Humanity. One player, specifically starting with the oldest player in the room and moving in order of age, will pick a killer and a victim. The other players will then have to play one method card each, with the first player then deciding which method is the funniest. The winner gets a point, and the game continues from there.

To mix things up, there’s also a pair of special cards. Death Itself means players can’t choose their method card, and instead all have to just draw random ones from the deck and play that. Players can also get guardian angel cards, which save the life of the victim and lets them steal the point. Both of these should provide a fun spin on the usual social “use cards to be funny” party game. Bonus points if you can make a compelling story out of all the cards.
