The best encounters with friends are those where we can talk honestly about what's going on in our lives, sharing triumphs, joys, fears and longings - without the usual shyness or reserve. The Confessions Game is designed to get a group of friends into some of the very best sorts of conversations.
With the help of a dice and some cards, the game asks participants to answer a series of questions around career, sex, money, relationships, family, gently inviting everyone to share important bits of themselves in an intimate and playful atmosphere.
The game guarantees that the warmest, most fascinating conversations won't have to be left to chance. If played properly, it should have moments of true sadness. Encountering the vulnerability of another person is one of the most helpful things that can happen to us - it normalises our own troubles and allows us to understand the reality rather than the facade of others.
The cards cover five categories:
Questions cover topics such as:
Which of your friends do you envy the most?
If you were braver, what would you be doing with your life?
Would you rather be poor but esteemed, or rich but ignored?
What bad trait of your mother have you inherited?
