In a time like this, it seems like everything is against humanity. Knowing that we couldn't also have Cards "Against" Humanity, we decided to put a spin on the game and create Cards "For" Humanity!
Being a team of all young students, we realized, after doing a bit of thinking, that boredom has become prevalent in these times; especially resulting from the COVID-19. We also understood that boredom can lead to depression and mental health issues as people are now away from their friends and everyone is currently going through one thing or another. It is these factors that highlighted our need to create an online version of an already popular game so that people can be entertained and the joy of having fun can be restored to people's homes.
About the team
What it does
Cards "For" Humanity is an online card game that allows for up to 8 users to play the game at once.
How to Play
Players are given6 white cards. In the center of the game, a black card displays a statement with blanks. Using the white cards that they have, players submit one card in response to the statement. A judge then decides which card is most relevant and funny. The winner is given a point and is appointed as the judge for the next round.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are generally proud of the success of this project because we all come from different backgrounds and the fact that we all came together in a limited amount of time to produce a beautiful piece of work is truly amazing. That is what we are most proud of - our success, learning and teamwork.
What we learned
As a group, we learned how to create a React web app and we learned the basics of using React. We also learned how to implement socket.io to allow for real-time connections between the server and the client while the game is running.
What's next for Cards "For" Humanity
We hope to add more statements (black cards) and responses (white cards) to expand the gameplay. We also plan on having a chat available for players during the game.
