What’s the coldest you’ve ever been? If you were a foreigner in your own country would you like it? What fictional place would you like to visit + why?
Have you ever found yourself across the table from a friend, partner, family member or a first date, blanking on what to talk about, all while deep down craving to feel more connected and get to know them better?
Inside the When Traveling box you’ll find 150 carefully curated travel questions designed to bring you closer to those you love, to break the ice on a first date or have to fun with a group of friends, all through the universal language of traveling.
This game isn’t about one upping each other on who’s traveled further, seen more or collected the most passport stamps. It’s about swapping stories with an open-mind and an open-heart while reliving your favorite travel memories through 150 questions designed to bring you closer to the people around you.
While designing the game, we asked more friends than we can possibly recall to test the game. We tested it with friends in LA, New York, Dubai, Poland, Hawaii and the UK. We tested it over zoom, in person, in the car, on a plane, at restaurants, with our high-maintenance friends and our easy-going friends; with friends that travel non-stop and those who travel once a year.
The outcome was always the same...people learned more about each other (in a good way, not in a creepy stalker way) and they all left feeling connected, uplifted and inspired to travel more. Maaaybe a few of them whispered that it was 'the best travel game they’ve ever played' but that’s something you’ll have to decide for yourself! We would love that!
When Traveling is the first in a series of card games, created by When The Game. More languages and packs coming later this Summer!
P.s - Some tips on being a great listener… (Most of us aren’t great listeners, but that's easy to fix). Whenever we hear someone speak, we automatically ask ourselves questions like ‘What does this have to do with me?’, ‘Where is this going?’, ‘Which part is important?’ or, worse, ‘When is my turn to speak?’. Needless to say, it makes the person speaking feel unheard and unseen. During the game, when you hear someone share their story, ask yourself a different question ‘What does this person really care about?’. It will make you hear the real meaning behind someone’s words and help you connect with them on a whole new level. Remember, being a great listener is a superpower!
