Cards Against Humanity, the popular and politically incorrect party game, offered a Black Friday deal like no other this year: you shell out $5 and get absolutely nothing in return.

"On Black Friday, everybody is selling something. We’re the only company to offer the superior Black Friday experience of buying nothing," the company explained on its website.

The trick seemed to work. Just before switching back to its normal site at midnight eastern time, the tally was just over $71,000 in sales from the Black Friday promotion.
