Cards Against Humanity

Said to be a game for "horrible people", Cards Against Humanity is a classic one to try out for those who play with their savage friends. In this game, a player known as the "Card Czar" draws a black card which can either be a question or a phrase that the other players need to fill. The other players then put down their funniest white card, and the Card Czar reads aloud all the answers. The funniest or wittiest one from the bunch gets the point for that round.
