    My Partner And I Created Card Games That Help “Rehab” The Art Of Conversation

    My Partner And I Created Card Games That Help “Rehab” The Art Of Conversation

    How We Came Up With Rehab.

    About 6 years ago, my boyfriend, James Schlimmer, had his best friend and his wife over for drinks. At the time, the friend and the wife were having some communication issues. James realized that the night ahead was going to be awkward and stale if his friend and his friend’s wife weren’t on good terms. So what did he do? He broke out a legal pad and a deck of playing cards. On the pad of paper, he wrote down 52 open ended questions that corresponded to the cards on the table. Each “game player” had to pick up a card and answer the question that matched on the pad.

    As the night went on, James’ friend and his friend’s wife were opening up those lines of communication. At times even, both of them would reach over and touch the other on the arm or kiss on the cheek. By the end of the game, the wife said “Wow, I feel like I just went through Rehab, you know, couples therapy.”

    The idea of the game stuck with James and it wasn’t until he met me (Ashley Chaffee) that we took that idea and made it into a tangible reality thus the birth of Rehab Gaming USA™ and our first game; Rehab-a couples release™.

    Here’s the skinny on our games.

    In a society that is controlled by smart phones and instant gratification, we have lost sight of the importance of face to face communication. Whether it is communication with your partner, family, or friends, we feel more comfortable expressing our thoughts behind a keyboard and screen instead of verbalizing our ideas in person. We created Rehab Gaming USA™ to address these issue. Our card games are designed to help “game players” focus on communicating with each other in a non-intimidating way by asking fun, serious, and sometimes silly questions. Thus ‘rehabbing’ the art of communication and getting back to basics.

    Rehab-a couples release™, is a couple’s card game that is designed to promote genuine interaction and entertainment between couples. A couples release™ can be played one on one for date night, or in a group setting. The game is 100% PG rated so feel free to play it with the in-laws or when your adult children bring over their significant other(s). The game asks relevant questions that were created by us, a real life couple, that allows each player to discuss topics that our partners want to hear. The game is guaranteed to bring you closer and help spark the conversations that get lost in the normal day to day tasks.

    Why this game is so relevant? We had a lady buy our deck, she has been married for 55 years and came back and told us that after playing with her husband, they remembered why they fell in love. We are also a lot cheaper than couples therapy. In all seriousness, we want couples to open those lines of communication and get closer.
