Actually Curious is a card game that brings people closer together, using the science and psychology of emotional connection to teach tools of active listening and empathy.
The game was created in 2018 by Curiosity Lab founder Michael Tennant, drawing on references from psychologists, journalists, crisis negotiators, game developers, our parents, and friends. The Lab came up with a game that teaches the tools to have conversations with empathy. Playing a fun and competitive card game is a sneakily effective way of disarming the defenses and getting into important topics.
The original Curiosity edition explores questions of background, values, and views on important issues like diversity & inclusion, the environment and mental health.
There are four levels in the Curiosity edition. Start at the blue questions and work your way up to the most vulnerable pink questions, meeting each other where you’re at and getting vulnerable together.
