Cards Against Humanity, the self-proclaimed “party game for horrible people,” isn't exactly difficult to track down in Chicago. But if you're already trying to take care of some holiday shopping and want to get a set of cards for a loved one with a twisted sense of humor, you might as well buy them directly from the source.
The Chicago-based company recently set up a physical shop in Block 37 as part of the Chicago Design Market, a series of five rotating pop-up stores on the shopping center's third floor that is curated by the nearby Chicago Design Museum. Other businesses selling their wares nearby include the guy behind those “You Are Beautiful” stickers, the locally-designed Fourneau Bread Oven and quirky gift shop, the Colossal Shop.
The Cards Against Humanity shop stocks the latest version of the fill-in-the-blank card game as well as plenty of expansion packs, including cards based around weed, sci-fi and ’90s nostalgia. Visitors can also sit down inside the shop and thumb through copies of local publications like Lumpen Magazine, Proximity Magazine and Mash Tun Journal.
It seems like everyone has at least one copy of Cards Against Humanity stuffed in a closet, but if you feel the urge to buy even more of the cards, the pop-up store is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 8pm until December 30.
