After about 100 games playing cards against humanity with just the green box i found   So you can play with just the green box, but you’ll need to download the rules and playing guide and you don’t have the happy ending option to end or win the game.

Because the green box gives half the number of cards at 300, where the main game it’s designed to expand has 600 playing cards, So the Green Box gives a little less playability.

the green box was designed by the game maker as an expansion pack to update the cards of the main game box.

When the Green Box is used as a replacement for the main game you lose some of the playability you get with the main base set game because the green box gives half the number of cards, the more cards the better the playability.

After about 100 games over the week, i found playing with a small group of (2 to 6 people) gives you the best game with no repeated cards in the hour-long game, and yes . . . it fun.

The winner’s black card is given one point and keeps the black card for the duration of the game, so you can easily see how many points each player has by counting their black cards they are holding.

A new round of the game starts with the position of card czar moving to the person on the right and any player the needs more white card picking up to 10 white cards from the white card desk.

There are no changes to rules when playing the cards against humanity when you use the green box to expand your main game, and only a minor change to the alternative rules when you play a game with just the green box.

When looking at the two way the game can be played with and with out the main game there is little change to the you play the rules of the game. 

When you use mix the two box thought and shuffle to play you can use all or none of the game rules if you chose there is no changes.

But when you play cards against humanity just with the green box you can’t play the happy end rules better known as making a haiku. Because the make a haiku black cards are missing from this box.

So when play with just this box there is a slight change on how you end or win the game. With making a a haiku out, you can just use the basic rules so when you win you keep the black card for the long of the game.

Because this box has 300 cards only half the number of the main game box at 600, i recommend to use the limit a game win to winning 10 black cards.
