THE DEATH DECK
The Death Deck offers up thought-provoking questions with a large dose of humor to help take the taboo out of the topic of death. Unique among card decks and conversation tools, this witty game encourages players to share their thoughts and stories and gets people talking about personal preferences on life’s ultimate decisions in a non-threatening and surprisingly fun way.
