Introduction: Train Ticket Cards Against Humanity
Played Cards Against Humanity? Have old tickets lying around? Want to have your own deck without paying/want to recycle? Then welcome to the right place!
If, like me, you travel by train a lot, this guide will help to recycle those old train tickets by turning them into something much more interesting and fun. Since CAH is available for free under a Creative Commons license, this means that we can download and make our own cards without infringement.
In this instructable I will be showing you how to make your very own CAH deck using only household equipment. This is ideal for students or anyone wishing to save a little money!
You will need:
- A printer
- Glue Stick
- Lots of old train tickets
- Home Laminator
- Laminating Sheets

Step 1: Downloading the Cards
Head over to the Cards Against Humanity website, and download the pack most applicable (Depending on which one you want).
Step 2: Print and Stick
The next step involves printing the (now downloaded) cards onto standard A4 paper.
N.B I prefer to use the program paint for the question cards, in order to invert their colour from black to white to save on ink. This can be done by PrtSc'ing the cards you want, pasting them into Paint, then right-clicking and choosing Invert.
Once they are printed, start cutting out the squares:
After this, glue the paper onto the train ticket. I place answer cards on the back of the train ticket and question cards on the front in order to differentiate between the two:
Step 3: Laminate!
Set up the Laminator, and place the cards inside the Laminating Sheet, being careful to leave a small space between each card. Now laminate all the cards, which gives them a smooth feel.
I managed to fit 11 cards per Laminating Sheet.
Step 4: Cut-out and Play!
The final step is to cut-out the cards, being careful not to cut too closely and separating the plastic.
Now go and show your friends how clever and environmentally aware you are.
Have a great time!
