A 'Friends'-themed deck for Cards Against Humanity is available to buy on Etsy
Everybody loves Friends, the sitcom about how easy it is for struggling 20-year-olds to get spacious apartments in New York City. The series ended in 2004, but streaming services have kept the show alive, allowing a new generation to fall in love with Chandler, Ross, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, Gunther, Marcel and Ugly Naked Guy. (I'm still bummed Ugly Naked Guy didn't get his own spinoff.)
For those that love watching Friends and saying outrageous things, good news! If you pivot, pivot, pivot over to Etsy, Daisy Store Gifts is selling a Friends-themed deck for Cards Against Humanity. The deck contains 99 gray cards, 180 white cards and no English trifles, thankfully.
The fan-made cards are available to buy for £28.47 ($37.34), ship from Vietnam, and are not officially affiliated with Cards Against Humanity or the TV show. "While there are sufficient cards to be played as a stand alone game, they are sized identically and can integrate hilariously into standard Cards Against Humanity decks," reads the description.
The seller also offers a PDF digital download of the cards for £4.74 ($6.22), so you can print at home. The download comes with printing and cutting instructions, which should no problem if you master unagi, a state of total awareness. Only by achieving true unagi can you be prepared for any danger that may befall you - like your lover leaving you for quoting Friends too much.
The deck has gotten many five star reviews on Etsy, but sadly, not from anyone named Princess Consuela Bananahammock. Madeline B. wrote, "Perfect gift for someone who loves Friends! They’re hilarious." Jasmine Wang agreed, commenting, "Perfect for Friends lovers." And Jennifer raved, "So funny! Perfect for the ultimate Friends fan! Can't wait to print them out and I like that it included blanks so we could add our own Friends' quotes into the mix. Great price and great design!"
However, a few people were more upset than Chandler after he found out Joey cleans the silverware by licking it. "Seller is non communicative what so ever," complained LA Marty. "Never received any update on whether item shipped and given and tracking #. I even reached out but no reply. Item was received, good quality. Great to have if you’re a fan of the show."
The cheaper PDF download might seem like the most attractive option, but be warned, some people had trouble printing the cards. "Was expecting to be able to print the PDF as displayed but it's an extreme hassle to even print them," wrote Artwork by Marie. "Nearly impossible to print to use." Meanwhile, Lauren commented, "These are great! It says to print them on a certain paper but I couldn't find it for a low price so I used 110 lb. cardstock and they work pretty well."
Currently there are no plans for a Friends reunion or revival, but that's a moo point.
