Cards Against Humanity is back with a new holiday promotion — and this time, it's hoping to "save America" and stifle President Donald Trump's border wall. 

How exactly does the company plan to do this? By buying a plot of land on the U.S.-Mexico border and retaining a law firm specialized in eminent domain. 

Customers can chip in for $15, which buys new cards for the game, a map of the purchased land, a certificate of the company's promise to fight the wall and more "America-saving surprises." As of Tuesday afternoon — hours after the project was announced — more than half of the slots for the project were sold.

Cards Against Humanity has been consistent about opposing President Trump. During the 2016 campaign, the company came out with a "Donald Trump Bug-Out Bag" survival kit, taking aim at the then-candidate. It reportedly sold out within an hour.

Though this newest project isn't really holiday-themed, it does follow the company's formula for tongue-in-cheek December gifts. Past holiday promotions include the "Ten Days or Whatever of Kwanzaa" and the "Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah."
