SUGGESTED WAYS TO PLAY

 

The LikeU Expanded Deck includes 120 expertly curated, thought provoking questions. The yellow questions help us explore what makes us unique while the blue questions help us explore what makes us human. The LikeU Travel Deck is the compact version of 100 of our favorite questions. 

 

There is no right or wrong way to play the game! Since we believe in the power of play and imagination, we encourage you to imagine new ways to play the game with friends, partners, colleagues, teammates, and even complete strangers. We’ve included some suggested ways to play below! 

Free Play (Multiplayer) - Place all of the cards face down in a pile. Take turns reading the questions out loud. All players  should answer each question. We encourage you to share a story or experience related to each question. If you prefer, you can choose to play with just one color. The yellow questions tend to be more lighthearted, and the blue cards tend to be more thought-provoking. 

 

Prediction (Multiplayer) - Place all of the cards face down in a pile. The players will take turns choosing a card, and reading a question from either the yellow or blue track out loud. The group will attempt to answer the question for the person who drew the card. 

 

Fact or Fiction (Multiplayer) - Split the cards evenly among all the players. The player who celebrated a birthday most recently goes first. The first person will choose to answer one of the questions they hold in their hand. The person sitting to their left has to decide whether they answered the question honestly or dishonestly. If they guess correctly, they collect the card and place it down in front of them, if they guess incorrectly the person answering the question gets to keep the card. Continue clockwise around the circle until all players have answered each question. Whoever has the most cards in front of them wins. 

 

Zoom Play (Multiplayer) - The player with the physical copy of the card deck should place all of the cards face down in a pile. This person will read a question from either the yellow or blue track out loud. Every player will answer each question. If another player’s answer to any question interests any player, encourage that player to share the story behind their answer.  

 

Rapid Fire (Multiplayer) - Split the cards evenly among all the players. Set a timer, each player will have 30 seconds to answer as many questions in their hand as possible. The person who answers the most questions in 30 seconds wins. Repeat play until all the questions in the deck have been answered. 

 

Writing Prompt (Single Player or Multiplayer) - Pick a question from any card. Write a journal entry, short story, or poem (real or fictional) that answers the question. Raise the stakes by allowing someone in your group to read what you wrote. If you’re feeling brave, encourage each other to read out loud to the group. 

 

Large Group Play - Break into small groups. Split the cards evenly between each group. Have each group go through all the questions allowing every person to share their answers with their small group.
