Cards on the Table
Between manspreading, mansplaining, and the myth that one can't possibly "have it all," simply being can be tough enough for a woman in modern society. So why not tackle the hard stuff with laughs? With ample room for discussion built in, Kathryn Ekloff, Amber Hanson, and MaryBeth Pecha's Persist The Game encourages you to assemble your girlfriends and dish up a healthy dose of solidarity, plus, of course, a wee bit of cheek. Players rank their values, completing milestones in each of four familiar categoriesócareer, health, leisure, and relationshipsóto win. Whether answering a "would you rather" (think higher pay vs. work-life balance) or acting out a gal-centric charade (like public breastfeeding), each card gets you closer to achieving your goals. But with cards subject to your BFFs' thieving fingers so they, too, can achieve theirs, things get competitive... and, as in life, they keep you on your toes. Perfect for a night in with your favorite femmes. Made in China.
