We’re not really strangers card deck and box

“Dig deeper.” The phrase printed on one of the cards encapsulates the essence of the game. Made to create profound connections and engage in meaningful conversations — all things that have become increasingly harder with the superficial society that we live in today.

The game is structured around three thought-provoking levels — Perception, Connection, and Reflection — each a key step on the journey of understanding others and oneself. The game unfolds as players take turns drawing cards, each containing questions designed to stimulate introspection and dialogue. As players progress through the levels, the conversations become progressively deeper, and the connections more profound.

Level One, “Perception,” encourages players to confront their assumptions and see how well they read others. It lays the foundation for deeper interactions by challenging preconceived notions and fostering a profound view of fellow participants.

Level Two, aptly named “Connection,” creates an environment where individuals can shed their societal masks and reveal their genuine selves. Here, players take turns posing profound questions rarely encountered in everyday conversations, leading to authentic and heartfelt moments between the players.

Level Three, “Reflection,” represents the culmination of the game’s journey. It invites players to share their most profound thoughts and feelings, encouraging vulnerability and authenticity.

Upon completing all three levels, the game concludes with a compelling final card. This card, aptly named “The Final Card,” serves as a coda, providing a fitting closure to the shared experience. The exact content of this card is for you to find out but it is nothing less than a well-thought-out conclusion that leaves players with a lasting, impactful impression of the journey they’ve undertaken.

“We’re Not Really Strangers” is a game that corresponds to the universal desire for understanding and intimacy. The game is perfect for bonding with friends, quality time with family, date night with a special someone, or even forging new relationships with a stranger. Whether you’re looking to strengthen existing bonds or create new connections, this game promises an enriching and memorable experience for all.
