What is Intimacy?

Intimacy is a card game that creates a space for players to practice consent, discover what intimacy means to them, and practice being intimate with others.

To play: each round, pick your partner; then, draw a Touch card and a Question card, and perform the Touch card while maintaining eye contact and discussing the Question card.

I wanted to see more games that encourage loving interactions; something that could help people get to know each other better and appreciate one another, so I decided to make it myself."

Intimacy was the first game to encourage me to embrace vulnerability with other people not just in-game, but in day-to-day life too."

Reviews

Intimacy made me think, more so than any other game I've written about. It made me hold my hangups to the light; made me consider how often we take boundaries for granted; When was the last time you asked someone during a game 'Are you comfortable continuing to play?'"

Intimacy is a new card game in which players touch one another with their hands and discuss their feelings about physical connections./Created by Aubrey Isaacman, it’s designed to promote physical consent as well as closeness."

Intimacy gave me this unique feeling of having a close connection to someone new. In each moment Intimacy directed our focus on a certain motion, sentence or feeling, leaving a lasting sense of connection and calm, well after I'd finished playing :)"
