Cards Against Humanity Co-founder Drops $935K on Brick Bucktown House

New, 4 comments

Max Temkin, the co-founder of the wildly popular Cards Against Humanity party game has recently closed on a 4,500-square-foot home in the Bucktown neighborhood, the Tribune reports. While the card game and its off-color humor may offend some, the cash that it has generated for its team of co-founders is no joke. Hailing from Highland Park, the team of eight co-founders launched the game from a Kickstarter campaign back in 2012, which has since turned into a notable homegrown success. The success of the game and its proceeds could certainly allow CAH's cofounders to relocate their operations and personal residences to more exotic locales, but the team, and notably the company's defacto spokesman Max Temkin, have committed to staying in Chicago. And much like the game, the ivy-covered three bedroom house that Temkin purchased for $935,000 is a bit eccentric. The building was once a machine shop, but had been converted into a really sweet live-work space.
