Examples from Instagram of how other people use the cards:
Last year I watched a @ted talk about how to skip the small talk and connect with anyone by having meaningful conversations with them. I loved it! I downloaded a sample of the questions and kept on my phone and whilst on my last trip in Nepal I met a few people and we ended up at a bar chilling and decided to play a game. Instead of the drinking games I suggested we try BIG TALK. Simple rules, ask the question, follow up the answer with "how" and "why". For those 30 minutes we played we felt like we had known each other for a far longer period. I must admit, you may feel vulnerable but i felt I could trust these strangers who some are now friends I'll say. We played a round of about 20 questions - intense and profound! I just got the full set of 90 questions delivered today, can't wait to have fun with my friends here playing.
Elia Rani used Big Talk question cards at an outdoor yoga and picnic fundraiser for building a new school in Nepal. She set a CHALLENGE for guests to #makebigtalk with each other and share their most interesting stories by the end of the night to win a prize! The event was called "Give, Grow, Gather" and was held in Singapore.
