While we were in quarantine and the world was locked down we still had the chance to be together far away from each other.

How to Play Cards Against Humanity – Tutorial
Players deal themselves 10 white cards from the pile that is located at the top of the screen.
Then you have to decide which of those 10 answer cards responds best to the black card which is displayed at the top of the screen.
Once you choose the responding card, you have to drag it from your private space to the bottom of the screen in one of the six blank spaces that you’ll see in the middle where your friend’s answers will be placed too.
As you can notice the game[C.A.H] rules are the same as if you were playing the game in real life.
The winner is chosen in the same way as well.
Did you know that you can even play Cards Against Humanity with 2 or 3 players?
All the players get to choose their favorite white card and the winning card will be the one that has the most votes on the game.
Now that we know how to play, we’re good to go!
Sites – Playing Cards Against Humanity Online
I’ve already mentioned which ones are available to use, so let’s waste no more time and see what, how, when each of them works.
1. Playing Cards Against Humanity on Zoom
Except that it is used for online classes, business meetings, work purposes, virtual meetings, and so on, Zoom will be your number one used platform for the sake of Cards Against Humanity games as well.
Before you start playing with your friends on zoom, make sure you buy your Cards Against Humanity, besides which you can also buy other editions if you feel like it. They can make the game more fun, and more interesting.
I’ll list you below other game editions you might be interested in:
If you want a faster game process, you could buy the Harry Potter Cards Against Muggles PDF version so you don’t have to wait for the shipping.
After you get the Cards Against Muggles PDF you can print the cards by yourself. The printing procedure is an easy and fast process by which your PDF has to pass in order to have the cards in your hands.
The Gaming Process on Zoom
Open zoom.us. The website is available to use for both desktop and smartphone users.
Next, you have to sign up if you don’t have an account or log in if you are part of zoom already.
After you are logged in on zoom, you have to send an invite to your friends and get together in the meeting.
The gaming process is the same, just that you are playing it online, far away from each other.
Each of you should show your card in front of your camera so all of your friends can see what cards you are choosing, what combination each of you is doing and choose the best card combination among your team.
This Cards Against Humanity Zoom meeting will remain one of your favorite meetings you’ve ever had on Zoom.
This way of playing the game will guarantee you hours of fun and laughs and at the same time an enjoyable time with your friends.
Playing on Google Hangouts
It is the same with google hangouts, you and your friends simply need to have a gmail account. You create a group with the friends you’d like to play, and start a video call.
How good is the playing experience on Zoom & Google Hangouts?
