Okay, read this description and tell me if you would ever – ever! – play this:
In this innovative game, each partner gets a box of coloured pebbles, with each colour represent a different emotion. Throughout the week, each person will place the stones that represent their feelings in their box. At the end of the week, you and your partner will sit down together to reveal your stones and the reasons you put them in the box. This habitual talking and sharing will lead to more open communication, and couples will soon discover that it is much more important to share the happy moments than to hold onto grudges.
I mean, it’s a good idea in theory, but if I suggested to my husband he hoard coloured pebbles to represent his feelings … and then we sit down and discuss it, well, there’d be a husband-shaped hole in the wall.
If perhaps your relationship is more mature than mine (wouldn’t be difficult), then you can get this game for $100 from Uncommon Goods. Or you could buy coloured pebbles from an aquarium shop.
