Cards Against Humanity, the foul-mouthed, sacrilegious card game, just released two “America Votes” expansion packs of 15 cards each. One contains a bunch of jokes about Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, the other a slew of burns aimed at Donald Trump and the GOP. They both cost $4, and regardless of which candidate’s likeness sells more, all proceeds will go to Clinton’s campaign. “We definitely took an editorial hand on this, and are certainly against Trump,” says designer Max Temkin, Cards Against Humanity’s creator.

For the uninitiated, Cards Against Humanity asks players to pair irreverent fill-in-the-blank statements (e.g. “When all else fails, I can always masturbate to ___________.”) with equally off-color responses (e.g. “Grandpa’s ashes”). It’s dead simple—“It’s the dumbest game ever made,” Temkin says—and requires only a hardy, sometimes sick, sense of humor from the people playing. Expansion packs add more… color. For instance, you can now complete the prompt “What has been making life difficult at the nudist colony? __________.” with “Jeb!” Or there’s the sad, deadpan possibility of pairing, “When you go to the polls on Tuesday, remember: a vote for me is a vote for __________” with “Actually voting for Donald Trump to be President of the United States.”
