Infrequently Asked Questions



How do I play The Deep?

Just follow the rules that come with your game (we even printed them on the underside of the box lid so you wouldn’t lose them; we're smart like that 😉).

In a nutshell, here’s how you play:

  1. Select one of the five decks (each represents a topic).
  2. Distribute the cards to the group, face-down (no peeking!).
  3. The person with card #1 flips it over and reads it aloud.
  4. Get an initial glimpse of how people feel by conducting a blind vote (everyone votes with their eyes closed). Hot tip: Everyone should keep their hands up when they open their eyes to see how the other people voted.
  5. Discuss your votes (5-20 minutes per card).
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 with card #2, then card #3 and so on.

How many people do I need to play The Deep?

We’ve played with up to 20 people, but you can play the game with as few as 2 people.

Also: some people have told us that they’ve pulled a card every once in a while by themselves just to contemplate!

Is COVID causing any delays?

Due to COVID-19, shipping carriers may be operating with delays of 1-3 days on top of already defined transit times. Certain locations, especially larger cities, are experiencing additional delays due to labor shortages. During the holiday season, shipping carrier delays may be even longer due to high volume. 

We will will do everything possible to deliver your order as quickly as possible. However, some of these factors are unfortunately out of our control, so we appreciate your understanding during these unusual times.


Do you offer gift wrap?

Yes! When you click on your shopping cart, you'll see a checkbox with the ability to add gift wrap for $10. Gift wrapped items come in a beautiful, matte black magnetic closure box, and are tied with black grosgrain ribbon.

Please note that gift boxes are designed to fit The Deep card games (1 game per gift box). If you'd like more than one Card Game gift wrapped, please adjust the gift wrap quantity in your shopping cart. For example: if you buy 2 games and would like both games gift wrapped, make sure the gift wrap quantity is set at 2 in your shopping cart).
