Making Planning Snarky and Cool[er]: Cards Against Urbanity

A few weeks ago, I was reading Greater Greater Washington (best site ever) and came across a Kickstarter for Cards Against Urbanity, a spinoff of Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity. Like those games, CAU is a city planning game with question and answer cards. Players take turns judging a question round; he or she picks a card with a question about cities and neighborhoods. Players then try to appeal to the judge by throwing down answer cards from their hand.

Since I fully support anything that has to do with planning and fun (although planning in my mind is already fun, but I’m a nerd so go figure) I want to make sure they get pledges for 250 more decks. They’ll add 186 more cards…which is 186 more minutes I can spend playing this game. If you’re picking up what I’m putting down, visit their site and pledge! It will make you laugh and is a great way to get holiday shopping done for those other planners in your life who live under a rock and haven’t heard about this game yet.

For more info, see the CAU Facebook page or follow them on Twitter – @CardAgainstUrb.




Maybe its because its Friday…?

Happy Friday! Here’s a riddle for you (hint: it isn’t a real riddle, I was just really confused):

An office visitor just asked me in the kitchen where they could find some ice. So I opened the freezer and there was a big bucket of ice sitting there. They got some and said thanks and left. What am I missing about their initial quest to find ice that somehow went wrong…?
