Games, games, games - not your typical Monopoly or Life

I LOVE GAMES - I mean REALLY L-O-V-E Games!  Below are some of our favorites.  Not your run of the mill games like Life and Monopoly (no offense to Life and Monopoly).  Some are perfectly suitable for the entire family while some are barely suitable for convicts (those are the real fun ones).  I LOVE portable games that I can throw in my bag.  I even store my LCR dice right in the change pocket of my wallet so that I am ready for a game at a moments notice.  I actually BOUGHT a game while pulling this post together.  I think I have a problem - is there a GAMERS anonymous I can join?  I will let you know if it is any good -

Click on the title of each game to check them out further.....

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.  The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.  Kind of like an ADULT version of the game Apples to Apples ~ like really ADULT! (Don't forget your expansion sets)
