6 Fun Card Games to Inspire Deep Conversations With Your Besties

Card games are such a fun way to get to know the people in your life on a deeper level – whether it’s with friends you’ve known forever, or with new people in your life.

Who doesn’t love a chance to get to know each other better?

These can be used for fun nights in with friends, at a party with a bunch of friends or to have deeper conversations with your partner.

Card games are a great way to get started on conversations and questions that may be hard to have, or never crossed your mind. They also make you feel more connected with your friends at night. Who doesn’t want more purposeful friendships?

These are some fun options for card games that’ll get your friend group feeling more intimate.

1. Where Should We Begin – A Game of Stories

Esther Perel created a game that will help you go into storyteller mode. If you’re not already familiar with Esther Perel, you need to be. She’s a speaker, podcaster, and author who talks about intimacy in relationships – and her approach is transformative. This game can be shared with friends to strengthen your relationship with the power and story of storytelling.

“The pandemic left us missing intimacy and play. I developed a game that would help us do both. The game is designed to help us connect and reconnect in a time of social atrophy.” – Esther Perel

2. Holstee Reflection Cards

You want a healthy option for playing card games? Spark meaningful conversations with this deck that’s all about mindfulness and is informed by positive psychology. 

These cards can be used with your friends, family, a friend, or even yourself for journaling.

3. Who’s in the room? Party Game

What does your circle of friends think about you? Each question starts with “Who in the room…?” 

For example, “Who in the room pees in the shower?” And everyone points to the one they think best fits the prompt.

You’ll definitely need a kind-spirited group for this one, so no one gets their feelings hurt. But who doesn’t love to stir the pot and liven up a party with some fun banter?
