From the king of pop philosophy and renowned author of the runaway hit card game HYPERtheticals comes more wild conversation starters featuring a range of unique new prompts. This new card deck, infused with Klosterman’s trademark wit, asks you to take a stand on matters of morality, social taboo, and personal identity.
• Each card features an outlandish scenario that begins with “Imagine a person,” bound to prompt lively discussion in any environment: Imagine a person who is your genetic clone, a perfect replica of you raised by different people in a different place. It comes to your attention that your clone is trying to destroy you, and you have three options: go into hiding, find your clone and attempt to reason with it, or attempt to destroy your clone before it destroys you. What would you do?
• The cards range in theme, allowing you to select the perfect cards for any audience, whether friends, coworkers, or family.
• Each card is color-coded to distinguish between kid-friendly and adult-only topics, as well as to mark questions that might provoke the deepest discussion, making for a truly versatile and revealing experience.
