The makers of the game Cards Against Humanity are known perhaps as much for their yearly pranks as the game. In years past, they’ve solicited donations to dig a hole for no reason, bought an island and sold literal bullshit. This year, they’re buying up land along the U.S.-Mexico border to block Trump’s proposed border wall.
The campaign, named “Cards Against Humanity Saves America,” is a six-day campaign of sending “gifts” to anyone who ponies up $15. We don’t know what the other gifts will be — other than some custom Cards Against Humanity cards, of course — but, according to the site, day one will be devoted to the border wall.
The site says:
Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.
On Day 1, all Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises.
Last year, the year of the hole was going to be the last Cards Against Humanity holiday promotion. But, they say, “We’re liars, just like the president.” The original announcement email clarified:
Two years ago, we told you that we were never doing another complicated holiday stunt again. But after accidentally seeing CNN on a TV at the airport, we realized our country needed us.
It’s time to suit up for one last mission. Cards Against Humanity is going to save America.
Unfortunately, the promotion is already full. There were only a limited number of slots — when we started this piece, there were 5000 left. But now, at 7:15 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, they’re all gone. If you’re looking to get in, though — don’t lose hope. Every so often the ticker goes back up as people cancel orders. You may get lucky!
