This year’s Cards Against Humanity secret Xmas surprise has begun, and on day one, they’ve delighted buyers (I’m one!) by sending us a share certificate for an infinitesimal fraction of a stretch of US/Mexican borderlands, along with details of their plans to keep the land secure from Trump’s attempts to seize it and build a stupid wall on it.

The have paid 300 gold to increase its attack damage, so it’s very powerful.
