Navigate an irreconcilable divide with your partner

Players: 2Playtime: 15 minutes

Content Warning: This game centers unhealthy power dynamics, creating frustrating and unfair experiences that the players must reconcile.

The Conflict

The players star as a fairy tale couple – the stable stalwart 🏰 & intrepid idealist 🦋– mired in a quarrel. Change your partner’s mind by shifting cards of your suit into their deck, keeping some cards for their actions.

Will you cooperate for a mutual agreement, or will you dominate the story?

If no one changes, you might just separate.

Print and Play

This print and play requires 4 sheets of paper: 1 for the hookbox / play area, 1 for the rules, and 2 for cards.  The backs of the cards are optional.

Play Online

This game was a finalist for the Life.Love. Game Design Challenge, as a non-violent game about power and control in relationships.
