Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Cards Against Humanity purchased a portion of the United States' border with Mexico as part of its holiday promotion "Cards Against Humanity Saves America."

The Chicago-based card game company announced customers can pay $15 to sign up for the promotion to receive six "America-saving surprises" including a map of the land it purchased along the border to block President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.


"We've purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built," the company said. "All Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards and a few other surprises."

Cards Against Humanity didn't reveal what the remaining five items would be, but hinted at an anti-Trump theme.

"It will be fun, it will be weird, and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out," the company said.

Only 150,000 packages were made available and all of them had sold out by the end of the day on Tuesday.


Cards Against Humanity previously sold "literally nothing" for Black Friday in 2015, for a total of $71,145.
