Who here hasn’t heard of the Cards Against Humanity game? There are two kinds of cards, the black cards start the phrase and leave a blank, and the white cards fill in the blank and end the phrase. The goal, of course, is to be funny. An example:
And now, one of the biggest and best fandoms has created their own version. I am, of course, talking about the Harry Potter fandom! So you all know Etsy, the online platform where people sell handmade stuff. One of their online stores, Forbidden Forest Crafts, specialises in homemade crafts and designs inspired by fantasy and science fiction, obviously including Harry Potter. The game was available for sale in the US, but very quickly sold out and now has a major waiting list. The creators, Heather, Michelle and Melissa, are looking into shipping abroad and are currently planning on donating a part of the proceeds to the Rowling’s Lumos Foundation (source). So far, no news on what is next or when the game will be available again.
But just look at those pictures, doesn’t it look amazing? If it becomes available, I will be getting my hands on one of these boxes! In the meantime, let’s all think up some cards ourselves! I’d love to discover yours in the comments!
Happy reading as always,
