10 Conversation-Starter Card Decks To Keep You & Your SO Entertained
Social distancing with your partner is great if your personal and professional situations allow you to live together peacefully. But let's be honest: Staying home day and night, even with the person you love, can get a little boring. Sure, there's Netflix, and probably plenty of projects you’ve been putting off around the house you can use to fill your time. But this period is also a great (if unexpected) opportunity to get to know one another on a deeper level, and with conversation-starter card decks it can be a lot of fun, too.
If you're not familiar with the concept, these are decks of cards, or sometimes games, with questions you can ask your partner that inspire deeper conversations and offer you an opportunity to learn more about each other. They range from decks that are fun, lighthearted, and bring out your silly sides, to really thought-provoking questions that invite you to explore your deepest thoughts and desires. And of course, some decks are more flirty and intimate, in case you want to get to know each other better while making things a little spicier in the process. If that sounds like a way you'd like to spend some quality quarantine time with your partner, then here are some great options for conversation-starter decks to help get you going.

1. Our Moments Couples Edition
This deck features 100 questions and conversation starters that will give you the opportunity to learn something brand new about your partner.
2. Intimacy Deck by Best Self
Featuring 150 prompts, this deck is broken up into six categories: Past, Random, Life, Relationship, Intimacy, and About You. Depending on your mood, you and your partner can explore different aspects of each other.
3. TABLETOPICS Couples
TABLETOPICS has more than 20 different editions of conversation-starter packs for various situations, from first dates to DIY therapy, so they really know their stuff when it comes to ice breakers. This set is created specifically for couples to get to know one another on a more intimate level, which makes it a great way to spend some quality time while social distancing together.
4. So... Card
While So... Cards aren’t specifically for couples, they do come with deep questions that can help you understand your partner in new ways. They might even contain questions you've never asked yourself before, thus giving you the opportunity to get to know yourself better.
5. Let’s Mingle
This deck is designed for both couples and friends, and it's all about adding a little spice to your conversations.
6. Talk Flirt Dare
This deck is divided into three categories. The “talk” deck has conversation prompts that encourage deep conversations between partners, the “flirt” deck takes things to the next level by promoting flirtation and sharing secrets, and the “dare” deck is all about sexy foreplay.
7. PDA: Please Don’t Ask
When you’re ready to get a little extra naughty, the PDA game is what you're looking for. This timed game makes players answer revealing questions that can really turn up the heat.
8. The Ultimate Game For Couples
This deck can be played with your partner, or in a team against another couple. The prompts are a mix of more intimate, thoughtful questions, with some lighter, sillier ones interspersed. This is great if you want to get to know one another without things getting too serious.
9. Reveal Or Conceal
This set of cards serves as both a way to ask deep questions you've never asked (or perhaps even thought of) before, and also a competitive board game. Each player takes a turn answering the question, and the person with the most interesting answer gets points. Or if you just want to use the cards to spark new conversations, you can forgo the point system all together and utilize the questions as jumping-off points.
10. Love Language
Like the Intimacy deck, this Love Language features thoughtful and probing questions broken down into categories: Family, Intimacy, Couple, Individual, and Past & Future.
With these conversation starters, staying in may end up being your best couple’s adventure ever.
