Cards Against Humanity "Make a Haiku" Death Match

Lorenz Cafe


The party game for horrible people is mashed up with the Cards Against Humanity Happy Ending and a head-to-head Haiku Death Match! You know you want to! Haiku Death Match and CAH are for everyone! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2264068083841130/ 2 people get on stage - one is labelled red, the other not red. They each draw 15 CAH cards and create 3 3-card haikus, which they read one at a time. The audience chooses the winner by holding up red or not red cards which we supply at the door. For purposes of this competition, haikus are composed of 3 Cards Against Humanity cards drawn on the night of the event. Each round will be the best 2 out of 3 haikus. A maximum of 16 competitors can join this bracket style Death Match. To enter, please message Lori Beth/this event. This event will be held in the Lorenz Cafe back room. Lorenz's full menu and bar will be available during the show! Charge at the door is $10 (cash or charge accepted) and includes a ticket redeemable for a drink or selected appetizer. The winner will receive a $100 cash prize. Hope to see you all there! CW: Cards Against Humanity cards are generally offensive and will be read aloud at the microphone at this event. Attend and participate with this fact in mind. We will be using the base game. Happy Ending : When you are ready to stop playing, play the “Make a Haiku” black card to end the game. This is the official ceremonial ending of a good game of cards against humanity, and this card should be reserved for the end. (Note: Haiku’s don’t need to follow the 575 form. They just have to be read dramatically). [This is copied straight from the CAH rules.]
