Why We Play

When couples become more deeply connected, other issues and challenges start to magically dissolve and dissipate within the new found connection. And we want nothing more than to see you experience more “in-love” moments in your relationship.

WARNING: Side effects may include more fireworks in the bedroom.

It has started so many wonderful conversations that I wish we would have had years ago. We played for a little over an hour & it seemed like a matter of minutes. So fun! We laughed & I cried all in the same game. Love them!

My husband and I used the Connection Cards the first day we received them in the mail. By playing with the cards, we were able to make our emotional connection more intimate in a short amount of time without the discussion turning to the “normal” topics. We both heard words of appreciation from our spouse that we may not have expressed to each other except through the natural flow of the CONNECTION CARDS! Thank you Austin and Rachel! Thank you for BMM!!!

We love The Connection Cards! They have brought about so many meaningful, insightful, and important conversations that we would not have otherwise had! We have been together for 6 years now and we have learned so much about each other within just a few rounds of gameplay. We are looking forward to getting through all of the cards and seeing what else we can learn about each other!

Austin and Rachel have created something brilliant here!
Loads of proven and effective research and strategies are boiled down into this simple and powerful tool.
In just a few minutes we went deeper than many therapy sessions could have taken us, and the cards gave us the tools to navigate the highs and lows of this deepening connection.
This is going to be a game changer in marriage therapy!

The questions on the Connection Cards are so fun and thought provoking, and they really dig down deep in ways my husband and I probably wouldn’t think to go without them. Having your deepest self known by the spouse like that is so freeing, and improves every area of our relationship! (Especially the bedroom. 😉) We are definitely going to be buying extra desks to give away for Christmas gifts!!
