We decided to test the game Personalogy by taking it to a casual dinner and pool party and it ended up being the highlight of the evening!
We introduced the game to an eclectic group of participants including a native Floridian with a Master's Degree in education, a Spanish teacher from New York city, a career military veteran from the Midwest, a minister, a grocery store manager and an antique collector. What we learned about each other was enlightening, entertaining and a whole lot of fun.
Personalogy is a card game that encourages conversations that you probably would never have had otherwise. In fact, one of their ads states, "Personalogy: The conversation starts here."
Personalogy comes in a small, baseball-sized box. The box contains cards imprinted with 120 "intriguing, clever, off-the-wall questions and surprising answers."
The goal is to see if you can predict the other players' answers and why.
You pull a card from the box and read the question:
"Which hobby would interest me most and why?"
a) Pole Dancing
b) Basket Weaving
c) Bird Watching
d) Collecting Action Figures
e) Train Watching
You decide the answer that best fits your personality but keep it to yourself.
All of the other players then take a turn sharing what they think best fits your personality in their opinion. What makes things even more interesting is that they also have to share why they think that way about you. Some of the reasoning can be hilarious. Some can be incredibly enlightening.
Once everyone has shared their opinion of your personality, you reveal which of their answers was the most accurate.
Then, the next player in line pulls a card from the box and reads the next question allowing everyone to give their opinion.
Several times, our test group burst out in uncontrollable laughter at some of the answers especially when they had to explain why they felt the way they did.
Personalogy is advertised as "A social catalyst, relationship builder, culture connector and conversation starter."
It excels on each of those goals.
If you are looking for a fun, portable and easy-to-play addition to your next dinner or cocktail party, date night, game night, road trip, Summer vacation, girls night out, bachelorette party, or family get-together, Personalogy is an excellent choice.
