About

Thanks for checking out this project!   

When was the last time you had an actual conversation with your friends? What do you know about their hopes and dreams, their most cherished memory, the one thing you can wake them up for in the middle of the night, or how they would spend their last day on earth? We are so caught up in our own lives, with our phone in hand, that we seem to forget to connect with the people that are right in front of us. About things that matter to us. With these cards, you can put your phone away and start listening to each other and reconnect. You will never run out of topics to talk about anymore and you will learn a great deal about the hopes, dreams, drives, fears, motivations and habits of your conversation partners. Whether you have known them for years or you just met! 

Let's put our phones away and have a meaningful conversation.

Sometimes, when I'm around people, it's just a habit to scroll through my phone aimlessly. Diverting my attention to my phone seems to be easier. And other times, I simply don't know what to talk about. And I dislike meaningless small talk. So I decided to do something about this!  

Simple, elegant, light-weight card deck. Easy to carry around.

I came up with over 200 questions that aims to dive deeper into one's personality, figuring out what shaped their story, how they work the way they work and what makes them tick. I culled the questions to 100, which will offer plenty of conversational topics for a long time! Putting them together in a simple card deck allows people to carry the cards around wherever they go. It's an easy conversation starter and doesn't take up much space.

There are no rules. Just questions. 

You can choose whether you play this game with two people or twenty, whether everyone has to answer the same question you draw, or whether someone draws a different question for someone else to answer. You can use a couple of questions as inspiration for a conversation or you can decide to tackle all 100 (and make it a very long day/night!). You can do anything you like. Just start picking up a question and (re)connect with the people around you! Let's put the phone away and engage with each other, face-to-face, whenever we can.

What is the money going to be used for?

The funds raised will help to start production of the cards and to create marketing materials (e.g. website, campaigns, branding, etc.). My aim is to get people more connected and realize we have so much more in common together than we think. Really listening to someone else's story is one of the best gifts you can give someone. And this card game will help start this! 

A couple of examples of what questions you might be asked and what the cards look like, below:

 Specs and delivery time

Dimensions of the cards are 56 x 87mm, with a gloss finish on 300 gsm card board. The cards will be delivered in a box containing two sets of 50 cards each. Production will start end of February, with the first batch ready to be dispatched early April. Depending on your country, it may take up to three weeks to get delivered via standard postage.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges are getting the decks out in time! This will be a manual labour of love initially, and it will require a lot of time. I do my own design work and have found a supplier already. However I have never worked with the supplier before, so need to do a test batch before I can print the large order. This may take some time and adjustment.
