KinderPerfect is the new Cards Against Humanity, but for Parents. If you need something to keep you and your fellow parents entertained through the holiday get-togethers, cabin trips and late-nights, this is the game for you! This game was inspired by sleep deprivation and too many episodes of freaking Dora the Explorer.
KinderPerfect is simple and hilarious. A person selects a red card and the players submit from their hand a white card that they think the red-card holder will like that ideally somehow matches the phrase on the red card. The holder of the red card selects a winner from the white cards, and that winner gets to keep the red card. The object of the game is to win the most red cards.

KinderPerfect was created by Washington DC-based husband and wife team Amy and Wayan Vota. The couple was inspired by their daughters — nine-year-old Hanalei and eight-year-old Archer — to put a parenting twist on Cards Against Humanity. “My wife and I loved playing Cards Against Humanity but we felt the cards didn’t really speak to our experience as parents,” Wayan tells Scary Mommy. “What are the true reasons why Mommy drinks? I’m going to put puke, pee, and Calliou.”
The couple started creating their own parenting-themed cards to mix in to their Cards Against Humanity deck. Soon their parent friends were having so much fun with the made up cards that the group found themselves playing exclusively with their own cards. After a super successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $20,000 from 800 backers you can now order KinderPerfect on Amazon, without even making the trip to Target.
Vota says thanks to the Kickstarter campaign, they had no problems coming up with hilarious question and answer options for the original 210 card deck. “We had over 800 parents give us 7,000 card ideas — it was crazy,” he says. “Ask parents, ‘What drives you mad?’ and they’ll have a few answers.”
Using actual KinderPerfect players as sounding boards for ideas, the Votas worked to come up with new cards that could create answers that aren’t just funny but “perfectly cringeworthy.” Vota explains that the game is so fun because these cards echo the natural humor we parents deal with day in and day out. He says his goal was to create cards that would have players saying, “‘Oh dear God, let’s stop and have a conversation about the time I had to deal with a poop mural.’”
You can grab the original deck right now, or you can pre-order the brand new 400 card deck that drops next week and have it arrive in time for Thanksgiving Break! I know what we’ll be playing at our annual Eat-All-the-Thanksgiving-Leftovers-Now Feast!
