LOVE TALK ©
LOVE TALK is an intense card game of 72 questions curated to deepen connection and offer more understanding. It is a journey of rediscovering who we are underneath the ideas of who we think we should be, and sharing that discovery with someone special.
Questions are intended to be asked in numerical order, as each card builds upon the previous. It can played with lovers or friends, or used as a self-reflection tool for setting a new standard of relating and overcoming fears that arise in the process. Love is all around us; we just have to go out and get it.
*Due to the depth of some of the questions, consider using them as daily prompts rather than attempting the entire deck in one sitting.
The game is fun, although I feel the state of the relationship the players are in can make certain cards redundant (to give an example: asking about family history can work for new relationships, but may be skipped for those that have been dating for a while).
I think the progression of the intensity of the cards can be improved too: it supposedly goes from less to more intense, but there seem to be a mix mash of intensities a third of the deck in and that can be a slight turn off. All in all it is fun to play with your partner.
Hiiii! I actually really appreciate this review. Unlike the uphill climb of SEX TALK, I would def say that LOVE TALK is more like waves -- from deep to fun to personal, back to deep then romantic, etc etc. And truthfully, I feel love is that way -- lots of ups and downs, but a journey worth taking nonetheless xx
The discussion that these cards started was indeed intense. At first we both were unsure about the deck of cards. We did skip a few questions (that we plan to return to at some point) but as we kept going, we got deep and connected in a very interesting way. I don't think this deck is for everyone, but if you're feeling brave, if you're feeling the pull -- I say go for it :P
This is such a powerful tool for facilitating interpersonal communication. I would recommend it for all romantically partnered couples but also for personal self-reflection and even between friends. The questions are thought provoking but not intimidating.
