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 categories—career, health, leisure, and relationships—to 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.

Kathryn Ekloff, Amber Hanson, and MaryBeth Pecha first met in the trenches of corporate America, where the further they progressed, the more alone they felt as women. After months spent venting about the lifelong pressures of womanhood over stiff drinks and tapas, the trio stumbled upon an idea that made them feel... well, a little less alone. Although they knew they weren't the only ones fighting society's pressures and prescriptions, Kathryn, Amber, and MaryBeth still struggled with moments of self-doubt and fear. In an effort to fight back and build a strong community of like-minded women and allies, they developed Persist, a card game that encourages players to strengthen their bonds with one another, laughing, learning, and sharing one's woes all the while. (Now that's what we call "girl power.")

It made me so happy to send this off to a girlfriend who had a harder year of stupid gender politics in the office, in her career, with her family. She loved it!
