The card game for horrible Brroklynites

Everyone's heard of Cards Against Humanity, the "party game for horrible people." Well, one former Brooklyn resident's putting his own spin on the card game: he's making a Cards Against Brooklyn expansion pack. This personalized set is just like the original, but with a Brooklyn edge. It has cards like "What does the R train smell like" and "The ghost of Biggie Smalls."
