This is harder ice to break than, say, launching into a round of Mad Libs or sports trivia, but Rapinoe is offering both a suggestion and a solution.
The deck, which costs $25, comes with 21 letter-pressed cards divided into five themes: revolt, rediscover, reimagine, redefine, renew. Each card contains a question like, “If you could shake up any industry right now, which one would it be?” or “What revolutionaries from the past do you admire? Which of their qualities do you wish to embody today?”
Rapinoe says the quartet developed a version of the deck last year, when hosting an event for their lifestyle brand re—inc. The participants’ positive response to the conversation-starting prompts convinced the group to “scale the idea … of getting people to think about and talk about these questions.”
