Instructions & Inspiration

Elementum Cards are all about getting back to human connection. Modern life has much to distract us from each other, and when we're together it can be hard to think of fun things to do.

We've taken the hard work out of having fun 😊


Our Family Edition has 70 question and activity prompts inspired by games we've played as a family for over forty years. Each card has something different - an interesting question to reflect on, a conversation starter, an idea for a fun or creative activity.   


➡️ How to play

Here are some common ways that families use Elementum Cards but do whatever works for you!

  • Get the family together and take turns to choose a card and do the activity. The person who chooses the card decides the rules.
  • Choose a regular time and get the cards out. Family games night - sorted!   
  • Friends coming over? Pick a card for everyone to take turns answering. 
  • Choose an activity card to do together in the future. 

Players can skip a card, super size an activity or adapt the instructions. So for example, if it says to draw you could choose to act, sing or speak instead.  


🌏 Where to play

You can play Elementum at the dining table, in the car, at a picnic table near the beach, on the ferry, at school, in your camping tent … pretty much anywhere. If the card doesn't suit your surroundings, move on to the next one.
