Cards Against Humanity made £47,000 by charging $5 for nothing

As Black Friday bargain hunters rushed to spend their money, Cards Against Humanity made a lot of money selling absolutely nothing

So Black Friday has come and gone for another year, but don’t worry bargain hunters, we still have Cyber Monday and Boxing Day to look forward to.

As retailers slashed prices and UK shoppers spent billions, popular card game Cards Against Humanity (you may have played it) made a lot of money selling absolutely nothing

The company, which markets itself as “a party game for horrible people”, made $71,000 (£47,000) charging shoppers $5 for nothing in return.

Shoppers even had to tick a box which read: “I understand I am paying Cards Against Humanity $5 and receiving nothing in return.”
