Cards against Humanity in Second Life redux

You may or may not have played the game CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY.. suffice to say it’s much like APPLES TO APPLES or MAD LIBS but very politically incorrect. One person (the “Czar”) plays a black card, which is the Question, and then the players play the white card as an answer, and the non playing Czar player votes for the best without knowing who played them. Simple game, loads of laughs. The player in SECOND LIFE (a virtual world) sits at a table that offers them a “HUD”, or heads up display, that maintains the hand of white cards for the players, where they can play against the black card. The entire game action takes place in the HUD itself; there is no “in world” element. So players just play their white cards and react accordingly when the Czar votes on their choices. Pretty easy and elegant.. the game play is absurdly simple to execute and all the player has to do is select and vote when its their turn to be Czar. Don’t know who built this, but I’m impressed!
