Stay or Leave? Card Game
A simple card game to help you decide whether your relationship has a future.
The decision whether we should stay or leave a tricky relationship is among the most challenging any of us has to make. Is our relationship essentially normal in its frustrations, or is it beset by unusually pathological patterns that should impel us to get out as soon as we can? Are we in danger of compromising too much? Or too little?
This card set has been designed to help guide you through this complex thought process. It contains a set of reflections and questions to help us clarify some of the core issues we should work through before quitting or committing. It reminds us that the answers we need are within us already, waiting for the correct tool to extract them.
How to Play
Read through the questions on the cards and assess your answers for whether – on balance – they belong more to the Leave or Stay pile.
Count up how many cards are in each category and reflect on the decision with the help of the instruction sheet.
Ask questions from the cards to friends and family when consoling them to aid their perspective.
The design uses green and red overlapping circles to reflect how difficult it is to be certain of any situation we find ourselves in. On the reverse side, the white of the card and the minimalist typography give visual space to contemplate the questions at hand.
