"Cards Against Humanity gives you a reason to talk about the taboo. Weapons of Mass Seduction gives you a reason to do it." So says Daniel Dranove, co-creator of both the former and the latter, the latter being a sex game designed with couples in mind. How it works, per the game's website: "To play, trade favors with your sexual opponent and see who can drive the harder bargain." The Chicago Tribune gives examples of those favors, from the innocuous ("opponent writes you poem") to the beyond-blush-worthy ("ask another couple if you can watch them have sex").

Players are instructed to pick a safe word that can act as a game-ender, and they might need it: The website quips the game is so named because it's "the most dangerous card game in existence." Though Dranove created Cards Against Humanity with seven high school friends, Weapons of Mass Seduction was a true couple's effort: He made it with girlfriend Kaitlin Johnson "to celebrate Valentine's Day 2013." It's launching as Cards Against Humanity did, with free print-and-play and online demo versions available Feb. 11; he plans to turn to Kickstarter to get the funds for a print run.
