I only just discovered this game about a week ago and it peaked my interest, so I went about getting some information about it. From what I found out this is a very interesting card game and not like any other you have ever seen or played before. After all it's tag line is “A party game for horrible people.”
I hope it will help you make up your mind whether you want to buy the game or not.

Cards Against Humanity The Beginning
They actually exceeded their original goal of $4,000 by almost 300%. They actually got $15,570, which is very good and shows how much people believed in the project. Well, those backers were not disappointed.
The first expansion of the game was released in November of 2011 and sold out in three days. The game took the top two products spot in Amazon's Toys & Games category in March of 2012 when they re-released the first expansion and an updated base set that sold out almost immediately.
More sets have been released since that include the second and third expansion sets and a special holiday expansion set. The profits from the holiday expansion set was donated to the Wikimedia Foundation.
The game has received raved reviews from places like Chicago Tribune, The Onion AV Club, Thrillist, the website Dice Hate Me and BoardGameGeek.

Playing The Game
The Card Czar reads the question and the other players pass him an answer card face down that they think is funny, absurd or somewhat horrifying. Some of the cards are not exactly politically correct and can be offensive.
The Card Czar shuffles the cards, reads them out loud and picks the one he or she likes the most. The player who played that answer card gets to keep that black card and gets an Awesome Point.
A new Card Czar is chosen after each round. I'm unsure of how the game ends. One thing I read says it ends when everyone wants it to and another thing I read said something about constructing a haiku.
Anyway, people are liking this card game very much. Here's a video that show kind of how to play the game.
When all is said and done folks are finding it a fun game to play and isn't that what matters?
