Esther Perel Launches New Card Game, “Where Should We Begin - A Game of Stories”

July 7, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Esther Perel, the psychotherapist, podcast host, and New York Times bestselling author, today announced the launch of her new project, Where Should We Begin - A Game of Stories.

“This game is an invitation to rediscover ourselves and each other as we emerge from social isolation,” said Esther Perel. “Each card combination guides us towards mischief and mystery, humor and honesty. Using the same prompts that arise at my dinner table and in my therapy office, the game unlocks the storyteller within and reveals just how much more there is to know about those we thought we knew.”

Developed over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Where Should We Begin - A Game of Stories was finalized over the last few weeks of January, while Esther was quarantining off-site with a group of friends she’d known for 25 years. It is both a playful dinner party starter and an antidote to social atrophy.


The game contains 30 prompt cards, 250 story cards and thousands of combinations. Each Prompt Card sets the mood or tone for a story: “Share something risky” or “Share something you wouldn’t tell your mother,” while the Story Cards inspire tales about “The worst date I’ve ever been on” or “A dream I’ve never shared.”

Recommended for ages 18+ and for groups of 2-6 players. Friends, lovers, and family are invited to play, along with co-workers and colleagues using “safe for work” rules.

Where Should We Begin: A Game of Stories is available exclusively at for $40. For more information on how to play, visit
