Level up your conversations with this introspective card game

ReFlex the Game is the perfect companion for your lockdown

While we're all cooped up in our own homes, keeping up social connection is more important than ever. But with the news cycle front of mind, stimulating conversations about just about anything else might not come so easily. 

Enter, ReFlex the Game. There’s never been a better time to get your hot little hands on a copy of this card game that is designed to engage your critical thinking skills and open up broader conversations. With questions like “What did you learn too late in life?” or “What’s your go-to lie to avoid committing to plans you’ve made?” and the spicy “Do you think you are or can be seen as problematic?” 

ReFlex the Game is the brainchild of Sydney-based slashie Flex Mami, a noted DJ, MTV host, and author. You can catch her encouraging critical thinking and imploring her followers to “facilitate your own nut” and take ownership of their sex lives (and lives at large) on Bobo and Flex, the podcast she co-hosts, and her Instagram page (where she also shares colourful DIY projects, fashion lewks, and a playful makeup approach that has been talked up by Jameela Jamil). She also made an appearance on the most recent Aussie season of Big Brother.

In addition to the original ReFlex card game, there's also a bunch of expansion packs (with questions designed by guests like Tanya Hennessy) and new games in the range. The babies could just be the conversation starters you need to facilitate fun and introspective discussions with the housemates or family you’re currently contained with, the mates you’re checking in for a video chat with, or that cutie whom you’re courting from a distance.  

Card games and expansion packs range from $39.95 to $29.95 and can be purchased online from the Flex Factory Store.
