If you like the card game, Cards Against Humanity, and you have a penchant for the military — and if you’re reading this website, you probably do — then you’ll love the veteran-produced card game, “FUBAR.”
From the same minds which brought you Duffel Blog, arguably the most widely-read news source inside the E-Ring, come over 400 cards capturing the side of military life you didn’t see in Band of Brothers.
No topic is off-limits. 35 percent interest rates on Ford Mustangs? Check. Getting a new DFAC because the old one got blown up? Double check. Making an admiral the chairman of the Joint Chiefs after eight years of land war? Shut up and take my Kickstarter money.
FUBAR is compatible not only with the original Cards Against Humanity, but also its spin-offs. Want to fight counterinsurgency with your interagency fellows? A few words of advice: Shooting Cecil the Lion — Not my fault, not my problem.
Here ten of the most awful — and by that I mean awesome — combinations available in the game.
1.) Leaving your CAC in your computer undermines the finest traditions of the Armed Services.
2.) The best evaluations will always have a bullet point that describes finding your NCOs on Tinder. (Dear S3 captains…you don’t need Tinder when you’re a bona fide Internet celebrity)
3.) George Bush brought the warm Snuggie™ of Freedom to the people of the world.
4.) Service members are our greatest resource. Well, service members and making money off of wounded warriors.
5.) Your award has been downgraded to barracks moonshine.
6.) Why don’t group punishments work? Warrant officers don’t give a fuck.
7.) The best part of invading Iraq is accidentally invading Syria. (Or flying over the border inadvertently… shhh)
8.) Sorry, your DTS claim was rejected because giving Saddam WMDs wasn’t substantiated with hand receipts.
9.) After the last plagiarized War College thesis incident, the Joint Chiefs ordered ethics re-training for the entire force.
10.) Counterinsurgency only works with admitting defeat was your strategy the whole time.
