Hey everyone! I made this (web) app out of pure frustration that no one has done a good job at it, would love to hear what you think! Protip for PH: open it in Safari and add it to your homescreen, it'll look like a real app.
jonas@jnsdls · Yeah, I don't know either.
@dawsonwhitfield Thank you so much for making this! I had been discussing making something like this with friends for a while but you did a better job than we ever could've in the time we have to spare. :)

Can you add the display of the black card to each' screen? I know part of the fun is in being together and reading it aloud, but I'd love to be able to do this async with a group of friends!

@kilianvalkhof it's a good idea, but it runs the risk of losing the magic of the game, you know? Part of what makes the game so special is that you're sitting around with your friends, I'm going to be really conservative with the changes I make to the gameplay since CAH got it so right.

I love the simplicity of just sharing a link to add players.

Very well executed but as stated on the site, this is a shameless ripoff of Cards Against Humanity. Morally, I can't stand behind this. Thoughts, @dawsonwhitfield? Are you considering turning this into lead-gen or creating other ways of providing a kickback to the original creators of the game?

@mroth oh! I stand corrected. Well done then. 👍

@dawsonwhitfield @rrhoover Ryan, don't feel bad. Was my first thought too and I probably would have mentioned it had you not already. Thanks for being sharp end of the "how legal is this" stick than I often am.

@rrhoover @mroth @golocalapps I made the game because I love CAH so much. Anything I can do to support them, I will. The last thing I'd want to do is hurt the people that've brought me and my friends so much joy :) That said, I think the CAH creators have the same values - which are to let EVERYONE play this amazing game, which is why they let you download it for free.
Ross@GoLocalApps@golocalapps · GoLocalApps
@rrhoover @mroth @dawsonwhitfield no problems with it. Somehow I'm often the PHer that points out to someone that they just may be skirting the edge of legality on a new project. (a couple of cannabis startups come to mind). But we do have a group that plays CaH, so I think this may be the next way we try to play.

@rrhoover @mroth @dawsonwhitfield @golocalapps I actually looked into the CAH CC licensing quite a bit when I saw "Crabs Adjust Humidity", an unofficial expansion pack for CAH which is now up to like it's 5th volume. As I've commented below, basically I don't feel that @MaxTemkin and the CAH crew are ever going to do anything about rip-offs. I don't say that to be critical of them, I just don't think it's what they're about. They're more about creating international phenomenas than about being commercial. Take Slap .45 as an example, which ran on Kickstarter last year. I know at least Max is involved with the project, but I was really surprised that they barely used CAH to promote the game at all during the Kickstarter campaign (they have since released a micro-version with the 12 days of Kwanza), and unless you caught the one bit that said "from the makers of Cards Against Humanity", you'd never have known. If they wanted to go commercial, I think they could've easily made that become a top 5 Kickstarter project - hell, even my mom has heard of Cards Against Humanity.

How about a public game? Possible @dawsonwhitfield?
