ENSPIRE Contributor: Elizabeth Casillas
Conversation Games LLC owners, Cassidy Bass, and Dominic Jones have recently created a new card game to push away quarantine boredom. Created while on a trip to Paris, France, Conversation Party is a game designed to amuse while debating. The game has three card types, Q&A, Statement & Reaction, and Open Discussion. Meant for 18 and older people, the game has three decks: “Love & Relationships,” “Love & Relationships: After Dark,” and “This Is Not A Game.”
During their trip to Paris, France, Bass and Jones realized how great it was to have fun without phones or gadgets in people’s hands. At the dinner party, there were no distractions, the entertainment was old-fashioned conversation. Everyone on the Paris trip was from different backgrounds, but they were able to hold a stimulating conversation on a range of topics. Bass and Jones recall it feeling like the group had been friends for years. Because of this positive experience, Bass and Jones wanted to emulate it in their game.
Conversation Party got its start through social media. Bass and Jones spent funds making sure their game was advertised heavily on Facebook. It was through social media that the game was able to achieve its sales, and it was social media that inspired some cards. Design and packaging held a bit of a challenge for the couple, but with their previous experience, they were able to bring the card game to life.
The creators pictured this game as a fun way to spend game nights, dinner parties, and road trips. The different cards target controversial topics such as money, sex, relationships, and religion. The card decks are all debatable, and depending on the players some cards could be seen as controversial.
“That’s the beauty of our games, the content may be the same but the vibe will always be different based on the dynamics of the group playing,” the founders said.
Overall, Bass and Jones hope The Conversation Party series brings joy to their users. The mission of Conversation Games LLC is to create fun and engaging games that build connections between people through stimulating conversations.
