We made it! Thanks to the support from all of you, the goal has been reached. Yet, there is still time for others to order their first deck or to upgrade your reward tier. So, things will still be rolling until Tuesday 15th of May at 18:00.
Would you like to double your chance of making your next date a success? How about just making playing cards even more enjoyable? Then ConvoCards may be something for you!
ConvoCards are playing cards. On each card there is a conversation-starting question.
By using social science, we have developed our own conversation starters. These have been made with the intention of building an emotional connection with people through conversation. Particularly for those who are dating, among friends, long-standing partners, and those who wish to practice their conversation skills.
Each of the four suits has it's own theme.
• Why Do You Ask (Diamond)
On the diamond suit, we have placed questions leaning towards the controversial. They are, however, left open enough that it will be up to the conversationalists to decide how deep they further the conversation into the controversial topic.
• Weird or What (Clover)
On clover you will find questions that are weird for the sake of weird. These questions are made with hopes of causing some smiles, laughs and twisted facial expressions.
• Naughty or Nice (Hearts)
This suit has questions romantically tuned, but can leave you embarrassed. Also, if you are on a date, you cannot sit and talk together for four hours without any physical contact and expect to build a romantic connection with the person. Therefore, we have thrown in a couple of questions that pushes for eye and physical contact.
• Business You (Spades)
The spades suit holds a mix of fun and personality-revealing questions. These questions reside within the topic of your job and career. Seeing as how our jobs are such a big part of our lives, this became a natural choice for a topic.
BASED ON SOCIAL SCIENCE
Science can tell you much on how to hold a great conversation, how to formulate questions, and what you should talk about. The results have in some cases shown to double your chance of getting the second date. The questions on the cards have been developed based on this science.
GIRLS: There is little that is more effective to get a guy to fall in love with you than by showing a playful side. Invite him to play and converse with you on the first date in an original way. You also might just get to know him in record time. Find out if there is a connection and a future between you.
GUYS: Stand out from the crowd and bring a deck of playing cards on your first date. Be original! Show her that you want to play with her, have great conversations with her, and show her that you want to get to know her.
TESTS AND RESULTS
The questions on the cards have gone through several rounds of testing to make sure only great ones get to be on our cards.
The design on the cards has also been tested. When the deck was introduced as a normal deck of playing cards, people didn't even notice the questions on the cards. Once made aware, it was still easy to disregard the questions, and just use the deck as regular playing cards.
The reaction from people has been a great motivational boost all throughout the project!
You may use the cards as regular playing cards. You may use the cards just for the questions. And, perhaps most fun of all, include the questions in your favorite card game. You can find suggested game rules on our website.
The deck we named 'The Original'. Just like your typical deck, comprises of 54 playing cards. The cards come packaged in a quality cardboard tuckbox. They are fine-printed on 270gsm, and bridge-sized. So they fit snuggly into your pocket or tucked away in your purse.
We have also made something extra just for our KickStarter-supporters. The Original Hinged Tin Box.
The sturdy box can hold any card deck of bridge, poker or US game size. The ideal safe place for your cards.
What turned me into a we? Everyone who has helped me throughout the project. But four friends have shown to be truly helpful! You may have thought they were actors, but no they are not. They just get really carried away while playing with the cards. These four are my dear friends; Kristine, Eyvind, Julie and Simen, with Kristiansand (Norway) in the background, our home town.
