A Game for Falling in Love

Introduction: A Game for Falling in Love

I'm currently running a crowdfunding campaign to create a professionally printed version of The Love Game. Since my main mission is helping people fall in love, I've created a DIY version that is FREE for non-commercial use. I've included the PDF which you can download and easily print off, as well as some general background information on the project.

Enjoy this free version and if you love it, consider supporting the crowdfunding campaign by buying a deck or two!


Can 36 Questions make anyone fall in love with you?

On the 1 year anniversary of being dumped, I woke up and read a fascinating article in The New York Times: Mandy Len Catro resurrected a 20 year old research study and in one evening after answering 36 questions with a partner...they fell in love.

Play The Love Game and…

  • Turn awkward, boring small-talk into an unforgettable conversation.
  • Get the person you’re playing with to fall in love with you, deeper & faster.
  • Find out if someone is or isn’t your soulmate.
  • Feel more seen & understood with your current Lover.

I still believe in the power of true love and wanted to use this toolkit to help more people fall in love, so I spent the next day building a free app called The Love Game. Within the first 48 hours over 150,000 people played The Love Game, hundreds shared it on twitter and Mark Zuckerberg even "Liked" it :) In a few short days, The Love Game has already become "the date activity everyone must try!"

Inspired, I realized that a physical card game version of The Love Game would be more intimate and special than an iPhone app where you could get distracted with texts and email. Physical cards would be used by couples to create special moments or given as romantic, inspiring gifts - for lovers or friends wanting to catalyze romance.

I spent my 34th birthday designing the cards and packaging; sourcing a manufacturing partner and putting together the crowdfunding page -- I move fast ;) Now I'm ready to get this game to world and help people fall in love! P.S. The Love Game also works great with couples-in-love who want to go deeper into intimacy or even for friends who’d like a deeper bond.


  1. Simply download the PDF
  2. Print on card stock or heavy paper
  3. Use a paper cutter to trim the cards to poker card size.
  4. Find a partner and fall in love! :)

If you enjoy this game, I'd love for you to support and share the crowdfunding project over on IndieGogo.


With Gratitude,

    I like your idea. However, I am having a little trouble finding where the PDF is to download the DIY version. Any help would be much appricitated.

    This is a pretty neat idea.

    This post might be a slightly better fit in the forums, but the fact that you're sharing a DIY version of your game for free is awesome. That's a respectable move. Best of luck with the campaign!
