Patrick Rothfuss and Cards Against Humanity Release Special Sci-Fi Pack

Last year, Cards Against Humanity expanded its subject matter by releasing its first-ever Fantasy Pack: A dozen fantasy authors including Patrick Rothfuss, Neil Gaiman, and Jacqueline Carey brainstormed fantasy-themed cards filled with playful questions and hilariously grotesque answers. But you know what goes great with Fantasy? Science Fiction! This week, Rothfuss announced that CAH was launching the Sci-Fi Pack, another collaboration between the company and authors like Elizabeth Bear and Jim C. Hines.

For $5, this pack of 30 cards “poking fun at the Sci-Fi genre” (in Rothfuss’ words) will let you throw down the geekiest cards in your next game of CAH. All proceeds from the first two weeks of sales will go to Worldbuilders, Rothfuss’ nonprofit. What’s more, Rothfuss says, they’ll double that donation before passing it along to Heifer International, the organization that Worldbuilders supports.

Here’s everyone who contributed to the cards!

  • Delilah S. Dawson
  • Elizabeth Bear
  • Jim C. Hines
  • Myke Cole
  • Martha Wells
  • Catherynne M. Valente
  • Patrick Rothfuss

And an example of their genius in this sample hand:

On the science side of things, CAH reminds you that the deadline to apply to its full-tuition scholarship for women in STEM is December 11.
