    - Jessica Wild, Yoga and Pilates Instructor

  • "Through my experience of playing Ego Cognito, I've gained one strong friendship, made acquaintances with people I may never have connected with otherwise. I have learned to soften my own hardened walls, and opened not only my eyes, but my mind as well. I am extremely excited to see the opportunities playing Ego Cognito will provide me within the near future!" 
    - Casilia Ward, Photographer

  • "These questions spark the flame of transformation, and what is learning without the transformation of the student? The things we ask ourselves and others shape the foundation for how we reach our full potential. I have had beautiful moments using Ego Cognito with my students to teach conversation skills, and look forward to many more."
    - Paulina Lai, Behavior Interventionist

  • "I am an introvert who has a hard time expressing myself openly around other people. Before Ego Cognito, I had trouble expressing my thoughts and feelings without getting talked over, looked down, or cast aside by people who wouldn’t take their time to fully understand someone that are different apart from them, or not willing to show patience to let me open myself up without the need to end up being frustrated from my introversion. It was a constant struggle for me to find comfort from others that shows courtesy and respect to those around them without me coming off as needy or desperate to accommodate my introverted tendencies until I played Ego Cognito. Ego Cognito is not just a question game, it is the bridge that’s there to welcome all sorts of personalities from people you have come across in your life. Having the game to be the guideline between different personalities around me does help to ease my social anxieties without feeling fearful of being judged heavily under the guise of societal standards. With the times I play Ego Cognito with others, or just by myself with a pen and paper in hand, my mind has broadened to the point where I no longer perceive my life negatively, rather I see it as an ongoing change of state at a different stage of life I’m going through. I’m here to keep myself going, and I like to thank Ego Cognito for guiding me to be a better version of myself."
    Angela Nguyen

  • "Ego Cognito is a game for the new decade, for the conscious, aware student or professional who's focused on self-emancipation and growth. The depth-seeking, thought provoking nature of this game's experience is a welcome addition to our society's dwindling of substance and meaningful connection. These cards should be in every classroom, common room, on every lecture table or dining table for kids and adults alike to explore who they are and what they believe reality to be. It's a game built for purpose, with intention and love, and to help people expand into more thoughtful and caring versions. Highly necessary for today's youth!"
    Maria Lee, Owner @ Tribe Fitness

  • "Ego Cognito is a fantastic playing game for people who wish to connect deeper within themselves and with the people around them. It's the ultimate get-to-know-someone conversational card game. In today's harsh societal social climates, this game has not only made me feel much more connected to my friends and family but also to myself. After playing many games with different groups and types of people, I found this game always succeeds to help an individual realize something new about themselves and/or life itself. I'd recommend this game to anyone who has a desire for depth in life and/or curiosity in themselves and people, and to have fun while doing so!"
    Jodi Fung, Forex Trader

  • "I had a wonderful experience playing Ego Cognito. It actually makes you ponder on thoughts about your own personality in a whole new way. And every time you play the game, you walk away with new findings about yourself. Also of course you really understand and learn about the other players life and experiences. I would definitely recommend everyone to try this game to learn about yourself and everyone around you."
    Thomas Philip, IT Specialist

  • "My husband and I love playing Ego Cognito at dinner parties and for games night. It has taught us things about our friends we never knew and helped to break the ice with new acquaintances. It was fun, easy to learn and thought provoking. We really enjoyed this simplistic yet challenging game of discovery and connection."
    Jenny Sims

  • "Ego Cognito is a great game to play with past, current or new friends. It helps build connections and understand others around you. This game really helps bring up the better old memories that is great for laughs. I would recommend this for people who aren’t too out spoken and for those who have too much to say. It helps balance both worlds. Ego Cognito creates great memories that are linked to outrageous laughter!"
    Sandra Thambiaiah

  • "When I first heard about Ego Cognito, I thought it was an interesting concept. It wasn’t until I played it that I realized how impactful it was. In my opinion, it is the best way to break the ice with strangers, and to deepen new and existing connections of all ages and cultures. Ego Cognito makes the difference between meeting people and bonding with them through a combination of fun and intellectual conversations. On an individual level, this card game does not end for me when I stop playing it. Each time, it leaves me with many questions to reflect upon and gives me the opportunity to explore my awareness further, while keeping an open mind."
    Yousra Benjelloun

  • "Ego Cognito was very revealing and surprising at times because you learn things about yourself that you don't usually think about. It's always interesting to see what other people have to say. People can surprise you with what they think to the questions in this game. It's really nice playing with people you don't know. It breaks the ice in an organic manner. It takes conversation and puts it at the heart of the game. Really great on dates. The game is practical and really helps introverts open up and helps extroverts direct their energy to somewhere in the conversation. It gives everyone a chance to talk. This game helps you to observe yourself from a less narccistic perspective, and get you to truly think about yourself, you could lie, but you know your own answer, it's hard to lie to yourself. It gets you thinking about yourself in a less biased manner. This type of game is really useful. It probably could be used in psychiatry sessions. It's a great conversation starter. I think it would be useful for people with social anxiety. Ego Cognito has a wide spectrum of use it can be used for family and corporate and anywhere in between. It brings people closer and makes the bonding process easier. It helps you learn about others beyond just a basic level."
    Ilya Penkov, Tech Recruiter

  • "My personal experience with Ego Cognito has been enlightening to the say the least. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my friends by playing this game! It can help people discover their strengths and learn about themselves. Definetly a great self enlightenment and discovery tool. I recommend introverts and entrepreneurs to play this game to easily open up the room for having useful conversations with others. Overall, I think Ego Cognito is a great game to break the ice and make new friends with. Ego Cognito is simple to understand and very easy to start playing with your buddies!"
    James Chien, Entrepreneur

  • "I was thrilled to know that this icebreaker game existed. I had the pleasure of coming across the paths of a young fellow who had this game. We were working in the film industry together on one particular day and he brought this game to work. I peeked at the cards and loved the questions. Why did I love them? They were uplifting, positive, and introspective. In fact my sister had bought an icebreaker game a couple of weeks earlier and it was very not uplifting... quite the opposite of this game. And I wished that something more suitable to my taste existed.. which was kinda cool that I came across Ego Cognito!"
    Shiraine Haas

  • "When I was first introduced to Ego Cognito, I was a little skeptical. As with many card games, I wasn't sure what to expect. I really think this game is an awesome social development. At first it was all about crafting fun ideas, seeing who could come up with the craziest answer, but now, I realize that it's truly about discovering more about others, and more importantly about yourself. Ego Cognito makes you think about things that aren't usually at the forefront of your mind. This game is great for 2 people to even 8 people in my opinion. It can be played with your friends, new acquaintances or old. I really recommend playing it with your parents! You'll find out some interesting things you never knew. I never knew I could learn so much about my friends, family and new people through a card game. But ultimately the game taught me a lot about myself... it's also a great way to break the ice and skip awkward conversations because I can almost guarantee 5-10 minutes in, if everyone is being even slightly genuine, amazing connections can be made."
    Ludwig Coleman

  • "This icebreaker game is an easy and fun way to increase connection between new and old friends. I love how the questions can push you gently outside your comfort zone to think in fresh ways. Not only does it create authentic connection but valuable self awareness. I would recommend ego cognito to anyone whether an introvert or extrovert, this game is a wonderful way to learn about yourself and others while having fun!"
    Tessa Bantock

  • "When I played Ego Cognito with my roommate who newly moved in, we hit it off just quickly! It really breaks the ice and even go deeper. After playing this, we talked with each other all the time, and we had great days while we were living together. She really liked it and brought some copies when she goes back to Japan for her friends. We never really know what people have experienced, Ego Cognito makes that easy to explore. Sometimes, people can become great friends with only a small push. Sometimes life can be negative, but Ego Cognito makes it easy to be positive and enjoy moments together. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys having something to do with friends, wanting to discover each others future desires or dreams. I would also say, don’t play this with people who you don’t want to get along with or become friends with, otherwise you might just become great friends! With these questions, you can share your thoughts and dreams with your friends (or friends to be). It even digs your unconscious thoughts if you play it many times. You will end up realizing what you really think and believe. And your thoughts and ideas only get bigger and bigger, then it attracts more ideas and people who you need, and your dreams may actually come true!"
    Naoko Masuda

  • "From all the times that I have played Ego Cognito, I have encounter from many deep to entertaining discussions with friends, family and even strangers! Throughout my times of playing Ego Cognito, I received a lot of social support to help me be more open, learn new ideas and develop a positive-self image. IMHO, Ego Cognito makes it easy to bring people together who just wants to create fun and meaningful moments at any time. While playing Ego Cognito, when it's your turn, take your time and see where each card can take you!"
    Danica Tran

  • "Ego Cognito is one of the best icebreaker card games I have been introduced to till date. This game inspired me to push my mental boundaries of thought and express them in a transparent most effective way socially among friends, family and colleagues. This is a total mind opener and a conversation stimulator; the questions are highly thought provoking and self reflecting in many ways! Those of you who are introverts or struggle to engage in new social meet ups, its time to say goodbye to all the hesitancy or awkwardness you’ve probably encountered along your life and embrace a completely new level of social confidence and build a broader rewarding social circle for yourself!"
    Frenil Zaveri

  • "Ego Cognito is a great game to play with others if you want to connect on a deeper level. While this game is fun to play with friends, I was also able to successfully facilitate a group therapy session with this game as an icebreaker because it allows players to be rewarded for honesty and openness. It is a very unique game and I recommend it highly for anyone interested in having deep and meaningful conversations."
    - Vanessa G., BTR Recreational Therapist

  • "Every time I played Ego Cognito I had the opportunity to understand people in ways that deepened our friendship and relationships to the tipping point of going from friends for a season to friends for life. It helped build commonality in our diversity and forced me to delve deeper within myself to find out the most beautiful and ugly parts of myself. At the end of the day it helped me grow so much!"
