Cyanide And Happiness’ Card Game “Joking Hazard” Nears $1M First Week on Kickstarter

Joking Hazard 3Just one week after launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, popular webcomic Cyanide & Happiness has successfully secured nearly $1 million for its new card game, Joking Hazard. 

Joking Hazard 4Joking Hazard is described as an offensive card game. Each player competes to finish an awful comic strip out of two panels.  One player is considered a judge and everyone else will put their favorite panel for the final part of the comic. Judge will choose their favorite and that will be the winner. Seems simple but here’s the rundown of the rules:



  1. Everyone draws seven cards: Players should always have seven cards.
  2. The deck plays first: Judge picks the panel blindly from the top of the draw pile.
  3. The judge plays second: The judge picks the second panel from his own hand and will put it on either side.
  4. Everyone else plays third: The other players give the third panel to the judge face down
  5. The judge picks a winner: The just lays them down on at a time and will pick the favorite

It was noted that the winning panel will go back to its owner for scorekeeping. The next person will become the judge and the game will continue until a player has three cards.

Joking Hazard 1The Cyanide & Happiness gang also announced that they will have some prototype copies of the game this Sunday evening at the Alamo Drafthouse Richardson in Dallas. The event will be held from 5PM-10PM CST.

The company will also be providing new perks for Kickstarter backers. This includes homemade t-shirts, pet comics, and interesting haikus. Those looking to purchase the game through the campaign may do for the price of $25. Estimated delivery is November 2016.
