    1. A conversation card game that'll give the gift of good conversation and quality time.


    The box includes 100 unique conversation starters ranging from basic and lighthearted to more serious situations. With questions like, "What was your proudest moment from the last 12 months?" and "What's one dream that you've tucked away for the moment?" you're sure to find something you and your S.O. can really connect with.

    Promising review: "This game, if we should call it a game, is so wonderful. We opened the box and just randomly started choosing out cards. Some of the cards were quick and straightforward, while other were more thought provoking. We got some good laughs out of this and it was truly a refreshing change compared to our previous casual conversations. I see this can being very useful for couples who want to get to know each other but also for couples like us, who are so busy in our day-to-day with the work and kids. It gave us something different to talk about outside the typical operational 'how was your day' type of conversations." —Orit
