I didn’t know what to expect when I bought the game, so I thought I’d describe it. Players draw cards instructing them to perform actions (i.e. send a meaningful text to the person across from you using only emojis) or describe something about their lives. Some topics are funny and others are serious. Everyone takes turns drawing cards and carrying out their instructions while the other players serve as listeners. Then, one of the listeners restates the words or actions of the card-drawer. If this is done to the satisfaction of that player, the listener gets to take the card. The person with the most cards wins.
An unexpected perk of the game is that it got me out of a funk I was in. I wasn't even sure what brought on my blues, but paying attention to my loved ones and getting a little silly really lifted my mood. I learned that focusing on others can lift my spirits.
