This is a cute game. I guess my husband and I are pretty "bliss"ful because we had to toss a few cards aside as we already do a lot of the ideas regularly (and the rewards too). It's a great way to reconnect and there are some surprise missions in there. It's actually fun to recognize when your husband/wife is completing the mission. It creates mindfulness and ensures you're being thought of. The directions are not well written and while it says that each person should pick 7 strategy cards, there are 7 TOTAL strategy cards in the box. And, they look just like the mission cards (different design please!) Uncommon Goods was lovely about sending me a new box since there weren't enough strategy cards and the 2nd box also had 7 strategy cards. Design flaw or directions flaw.
Seems like a fun way for each partner to learn more about the other.
My husband and I are very competitive, this was perfect for getting us to do nice things for each other. We had a lot of fun our first week. Need to play again soon!
The game that make it fun to be competitive with your spouse!
Bought for married children's stockings. They couldn't quit talking about it. We got it for ourselves and have purchased for others. Everyone has enjoyed this game. It spurs you to do kind things for each other and to have fun in ways you might not have thought about. Creative, interesting and can be competitive or not depending on the couple.
Literally SAVED our marriage at 16 years. Thank you both for such a simple way to stay connected. Better than the 10 years of therapy-marriage counseling we had. Game forces you to look for the positive in the others actions and requires simple actions. Love it!
This didn't really motivate us to change much. We help each other all the time and are lucky enough to be able to afford the rewards all the time. I guess we could make up our own missions and rewards, but then why buy the game?
This is more of a way to ensure your spouse feels loved and appreciated in small, everyday ways than it is a game, which is the beauty of it. It's fun to have small tasks to do for your spouse, and to have those activities be suggested--that way, some things come up that you wouldn't normally think of, therefore can be especially nice surprises.
I am super competitive, so this game helped me to not only be a great wife, but have fun trying to "beat" my husband at being kind. It's a blast! Since gameplay takes place over the course of a week, it is a super fun way to make otherwise "normal" weeks exciting!

I bought this for my daughter in law for her birthday (she had it on a wish list), my son happened to lose his job that week, it sounded like this was a great distraction and sparked some extra romance in what could have been a tough week! This is such a great idea!
