OVERVIEW OF THE AND
The And is a wonderful card game where both players are the winner. The point of the game is to strengthen the relationship you have with the other player by asking deep, sometimes intense, questions. Although the questions may be difficult to answer, there are options to pass and leave the question unanswered.
There are numerous editions to this game, depending on what the players are looking to get out of it. There are Couples Editions, Family Editions, and many more. There is a game for each relationship that may need strengthening. Take a deep breath, dive in, and grow.
To begin setup, both players will randomly choose 12 cards from the deck. Sit facing one another with about a foot distance in between you. The game is ready.
To start the game, take 30 seconds to relax and look at each other. Each player will then take turns asking each other the questions on the cards, until either the questions run out, or the players decide to take a break.
Every question must be read out loud, but the other player does not have to answer it. To show that a player wants to pass, they must look the other player in the eyes for 10 seconds, and then say “pass” aloud.
END OF GAME
The game ends whenever both players decide. It can be when all questions have been read through, or it can be after a certain amount of time. This game is meant to bring you closer, so in the end, you are both winners.
