Ladies Night Game
Learn about your friends through four categories of intimate and interesting questions. Sample questions include: "What is my favorite vice?" "Which ex-lover of mine do I think was the most romantic?" "What chore do I despise the most?" and "What outdated fashion trend do I secretly wish would come back into style?"
Win the game by being the player that best guesses how their friends will answer. Cards are in both English and Spanish.
Includes Ladies Night Spinner, 1 Ladies Night game pad, 40 "Just for Fun" question cards, 40 "Lifestyle" question cards, 40 "Style & Beauty" question cards, and 40 "Love & Relationships" question cards, Ladies Night answer pad.
This game focuses on communication and is designed for group gatherings/parties with friends.
While this game contains several questions that are very binary in gender expectations/heteronormative, a large number of the questions do not rely on gendered language/assumptions. For example, while one question might read "Which of my old boyfriends would I most like to hear from?" others use the more neutral term "lover," as in "What do I most often wear when I want to turn a lover on?" The game does tend to assume a game participant who is a heterosexual, cisgender woman, but most of the questions are not gender specific and could be answered by anyone of any gender.
That said, you can always pre-screen your cards before an event to decide which are best suited to your group-- just remove any you don’t care for! The name of this game says "ladies night" in the title, and quite a few of the questions focus heavily on topics or questions that are often considered "feminine" in our culture. Again, this may or may not be a concern depending on the group playing the game.
Each card's question is written in both English and Spanish.
