Talking I'll Bet A Bit Of An Eccentric Lives Here


[Photos: VHT Studios]
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.

Not my style, but it is a very cool place. I would not want to have to clean all the "stuff" he has in each room, but to each their own.

Bucktown is a quaint little town with many different things and places. I like to go there when visiting family in Chicago. This home is done well, just not me.

I could live there, but you would need to remove the ivy cause it is dirty, brings bugs and is not good for the brick.

I wondered about the ivy and the brick too.
I love the house. I love all the books and bookcases. I prefer to admire it than live in it though. Maybe if I got rid of a lot of the knick knacks.

It's Boston ivy, nothing like English which is tenacious and does destroy brick.
BTW, It's the ivy that's covering buildings at Harvard and it's the ivy you hear growing on the walls in Wrigley Field.

As for bugs, anything outside can have them.

I'm allowing it to grow on my hse, it's currently changing colors just like the trees and will drop its leaves come first freeze.

This past yr my new neighbors put up a 8ft high raw stockade fence that will eventuallyweather, but I'm so happy some Boston ivy volunteers have started growing on it.
Can't wait for that wall of green.

Not heard of CAH.
House wouldn't suit me. Too much going on inside and outside.
