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.

These cards are a great way to start conversations and dive deeper into uour marriage relationship. My wife and I have found that they are angreat way to really get to know each other. They arent just “questions and answer” cards, they really help and guide conversation into deeper waters. They are great for anyone who really wants to connect on a new level. It doesnt matter if you have been married for 30 years or 3 days, these are worth the investment!!

so… I might have had a “typical guy” inward reaction to this game as we read the gameplay directions and got ready to start. i might have slightly thought… here we go, this is going to be so cheesy and lame… let me just appease my wife and go along with it. LITERALLY after the first card, that mentality was shattered and i was IN IT. this truly can be just for fun, or truly HELPFUL. I think what is truly great about this game is that it works for anyone in any stage of relationship/marriage… and by that i mean whether times are tough right now or if things are great and you both feel like “5’s”. I believe that so much that im going to get a few to give as gifts!

Whats also great is i know that this game was built upon pure motives and heart and by some of the most genuine caring and loving people ive met! Cant wait for expansion packs!

We’ve only started using the connection cards and already know they’re going to be great for our relationship. Just the first couple questions sparked meaningful conversation so we couldn’t get any further until our next date night. Thanks Austin and Rachel!


Love how much it has improved our understanding of each other!

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!!!
