My family was stuck in a routine of what I call “family screen time”. When we sat down for dinner it was everyone for themselves to find their screen of choice; tablets, video games, phones, etc. I decided to give your cards a shot, now at dinner time the kids are no longer fighting over who gets which screen, but who gets to pull the first question card! It has been such a bonding experience for us all. Jack (8), Scott (5), and even Cole (almost 2) all enjoy their turn to pull a card and answer the questions. Thank you so much!
I thought these would be a great way to stay connected with my grown children who are stationed out of state. I text them every morning a random card. The first day was ok, the second day was ok, the third day had me in tears reading what my youngest said. She said the worst part about her family order was feeling the pressure to be as good as her siblings. She said she feels like she is a failure to our family. What I saw though, was pure love!!! Not only did the other three immediately let her know how much they loved her; they encouraged her and motivated her and brought a smile to her face that she’s been missing. Today, it was instant laughter with an answer to a question. We had a two-hour conversation filled with tears this morning. It was one of those much-needed momma/daughter talks. I look forward to the next 195 days!
Does exactly what it needs to do. Takes those boring silent dinners and everyone with a nose in the cell phone moments into enlightening fun conversations for all ages. First use with first card turned into hours longs fun, rewarding conversation with a positive experience we each learned something about one another. Thank you so much.
Our entire family loves this game and looks forward to it daily. We bought this to eliminate television being on during dinner. My kids are 6 and 4, so they answer accordingly but it's fun to see how their minds process and respond. My husband and I are learning things about each other as well. Beyond getting connecting more, it's a valuable tool to help develop critical thinking and conversation skills. It completely eliminated the fight of turning off television for a screen free meal. It's simple and the kids remained engaged through all of dinner. I've noticed we've been lingering and talking more even after dinner is finished.
Buy these. Do it now. Our girls, 20, 12, and 9, always love getting these out. Their mom and I keep them in a cabinet drawer and it is very rare that we are the ones that get them out. If you want to bond as a family and have quality conversations.
We have 3 boys, 5, 14 and 17 and believe it or not these cards work perfectly to get conversation flowing among all of us. The first card was pulled and I started learning things about my children that I didn't know. The most surprising thing was that my teenagers enjoy this. They actually WANT to sit at the dinner table and talk to their parents! The cards are written in such a way that the 5-year-old can chime in with his own perspective, which is great because he often gets unintentionally left out of the conversation. He really enjoys getting his turn and having his ideas genuinely listened to.
My bf and I had a great time with these cards. They are very thought provoking questions and have been a great for when we spending time together, helping us to better know and understand each other on a deeper level. These cards are like having butterflies during the first month of dating all over again! They are an excellent choice when traveling together and really help to pass the driving time.
We are seniors who have many years of experience but we are thoroughly enjoying this game anyway! Because the questions can be broken down into categories somewhat related to the length of relationships, it stimulates honest conversation on a variety of subjects: some just for fun, others quite serious. This game would be IDEAL for younger, newer couples who are still exploring the basics of a meaningful relationship. But the questions asked/answered are also fun/provocative/revealing even for couples who've been 'round the block for me than 50 years! Have fun with it!
This deck is amazing!!! My husband and I have a standing weekly date night and we will pull a card or two and just spend hours talking. It helps us dig into things without it starting as an issue to work through, so there's no negative feelings around the questions. It's helped our marriage so much, my psychiatrist bought one to help with her practice!
Being married for almost 20 years, we kind of ran out of things to talk about to communicate with each other. This definitely got us talking again!
My fiance and I really enjoy these cards. I was a bit skeptical when I got them not sure if we would like them or not. I bought them for a camping trip and packed the cards along with several other card and board games. For the entire week this was the only game we played we just really enjoyed getting to know each other so much more.
I bought this because my wife & I take lots of little road trips. She doesn't speak much: she drives so much for work that she's accustomed to just listening to music. So I used the cards yesterday & it not only helped the time speed by on the 2.5 hour trip on our holiday but I feel so much closer to her. She rarely shares deep thoughts. I loved it! We will be staying with my extended family for awhile due to work so I'm going to ask them some of these questions!
I was running out of ideas when I came across these cards. We love them! My kids are ages 1-12, and they look forward to this at dinner. They usually ask me to do several at a time. I like that I can stick a few in our backpack when we go places they have to wait, like the dentist office, when I need something to keep them occupied and they can’t be physically active. I really appreciate this deck of cards for making that aspect of my life with five kids much easier!

We made a rule: no technology at dinner time. Lots of grumbling UNTIL we got this. We each pull a card and go around the table and answer. This has sparked more spontaneous conversations as well. Perfect for any family with kids that typically respond with one word answers! And topics appropriate for all age groups!
I am thoroughly enjoying these cards! They are exactly what they claim to be, talking points and help having a conversation with your kids. My daughter loves these cards and she picks out one card everyday during dinner time and we all take turns to answer the question. The questions are so appropriate and sharing our answers is helping us to know each others thoughts likes and dislikes. We as a family are having some fun moments together thanks to these deck of cards
Wonderful tool for teaching kids to develop social skills! I had my 9 yr old grandkids over the weekend & wanted something to keep their attention that wasn’t electronic. I ordered the Kids pack. It was a huge hit! We spent two hours answering questions & talking about each of our answers. It was a blast & the kids loved it!
Bought this for my girl scout troop to use as ice breakers. So of course I tested on my kids, neighbors and friends kids first! It has been a huge hit! 100% recommend this!
Our kids love having this at the dinner table and it sparks some great conversations! Perfect for 8 and up! Our 4 year old tries to participate! 😊
We have had so much fun as a family with these cards! We have an 18, 15 and 12 year old - all boys - so you know conversations don't just happen spontaneously. But after the first card and all the laughter that ensued, they were asking for another card. Looking forward to many more family meals with great conversation and laughter!
I bought this as a fun way to stop and connect with my 14 year old. She was annoyed at first but now every morning and right before bed. She asks me to pick a card which we do. We are laughing and connecting on what matters.
Wow have these changed dinner conversations! I’m good at asking questions but these cards change the game! I love where the conversations go! THE BEST!!!
I loved that these were a great size for travel and that the font and font size were literally easy for all ages to read. The questions also made everyone slow down and think and in a good way. We look forward to playing this with our parents /grandparents later. We think they will love it also!
We use these with our kids when we have family dinner. Although it says Teen, my 10 year old loves to participating in answering questions. These were recommended to me by a friend and I recommend them as well. I am learning a lot about my kids and it keeps them off their electronics!
I was so surprised by the amazing conversation starters here. No fluff, but real conversations. I'm very pleased with my purchase. Thank you!
Bought this item for my men's prayer group to use when we need the occasional break from deep diving the Scriptures. The questions are highly thought-provoking and enable you to dive as deeply into a topic as you desire. So far, this has been a big hit with our group!
As a Pastor, I'm using one card per week to open our Bible study. The goal is to have my congregation think critically about how they talk/present the Gospel!
Our Youth and Young ministry is taking a good advantage of this talking cards. Our guys love it and really surprise us with their response
My entire family loved answering the questions on the cards. Great insight from your authors, fun and meaningful- even the little ones could add to our conversations. Thank you
We just received this, read through a few and did one so far, and these are awesome! Great way to get closer to your partner, and get out of a date rut. We plan to do another one in a few days. Love it!
I really like the different categories of cards. Pick the category you're up for that day/night and have fun. Some feel silly! But that's okay! It absolutely sparks imagination and we've modified or customized our interpretation of the cards to suit. Fun anniversary gift!
This game is full of fun ideas.We read every card. Like a good book, we couldn't put it down.I could list some of our favorites but I don't want to ruin the surprise.I'm a regular gamer of all types of board, card and tabletop games.These cards are on good quality card stock. Nice storage box.Bright printing with good colors. A good buy that won't break the bank but worth every penny.
These cards are incredible - there are so many different date ideas in here that it would take us years to go through them all! Talk about being spoiled for choice! A great investment, I highly recommend these!
This date night box was really great! There are enough date ideas here for years of dates. The ones we have done so far have been fantastic, can't wait to do more!
Perfect questions to get any grandparent interested in playing. My dad was very resistant at first because he felt like it was just a silly game. But once he was asked the first question, he entered story-telling mode and his memories/experience descriptions are so entertaining. It truly is a remarkable game.
The questions in this set are varied and thoughtful, we all learned something as we considered just a few of the questions. Yes, you can find a list of questions like this on the internet, but this is a very well curated, organized and elegant set. It's a GREAT set of questions. I looked for lists like this when my mother was dying of cancer and would have been thrilled to have this but this is even better for less intense situations. I am happy to have it and will keep it for a long time. I'm tempted to run a video to record some of the answers we share.
Excellent game!!! I play with my young grandchildren and my elderly mother. It is so relaxed and makes you feel happy!!!
I purchased these in anticipation of an upcoming family holiday, so I got this deck to help us interact meaningfully and have significant conversations. I expected some resistance from the family, so I tried out some of the questions on my husband tonight. We had the best conversation we'd had in months. Upon reflection, I realize that using these cards cultivates both the skill and the habit of asking good questions, listening and sharing more deeply.
Apart from play, there are loads of benefits for using this. Perhaps the most important ones are helping little kids to ask good questions and having them learn to quietly listen to the answers.This was for a five and 6-year-old boys who are skilled at reading and communicating already and gives them some fun topics to further strengthen their ability to speak with adults.Very, very happy with this play tool.
