Morning Brief: March 26
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."
