The Rank Game encourages family and friends to turn off their devices and have fun getting to know each other. Includes optional Faith Expansion Pack.
Most people are aware of the dismal statistics or news stories about how technology, screen time, advertising and social media are eroding social lives. You may have experienced this first hand in your own life. Even when we want to quit tech and spend more time having real experiences in authentic relationships, it often appears harder to simply be together face to face. We often exchange our work computers for more screen time in our off hours: video games, television, movies, and discover, we really have not left tech behind at all!
So how do we bridge the gap between technology and real relationships? The Rank Game offers a fun solution!
The Rank Game is a card-based game that shows how well you know your family and friends. The ranker ranks four items, and the guessers guess how those items were ranked to achieve points. The game features four fun game modes based upon the number of players.
I played the Icebreaker mode designed for 2 people with my husband. With the two-person version, there is no winner or loser, but that didn’t stop us from seeing which one of us knew more about the other! The versions with 3 people or more all have one rotating Ranker, and the rest are Guessers who compete for points.
The object of the game is to go through cards on different topics and pick the response you think the Ranker would pick. My game came with: Everyday Life, Adulting, and Leisure Time. I also got the Faith pack, which is a nice addition. Expansion packs include: Risky Business, Sports and Outdoors, Culture Vulture, Guys Night, Relationship Goals, Girls Night, The Faith Pack, and two customizable packs you can create on their website. Each pack has a specific color. The green Everyday Life pack has topics for all ages. Yellow Adulting cards have topics for 12 and older. Blue Leisure Time cards have activities anyone might enjoy.
Using a score card, which isn’t necessary for the 2-person game, we played each card to see who had the best answers about their spouse. In a larger group, you guess the answers about one person–the Ranker– for each round, and alternate the Ranker with each color (or deck) change.

Even for just two players, it was a fun way to spend part of an afternoon although more people playing and keeping score would add a bit more competition to the game. I recommend it for the whole family, for groups of friends, college gameroommates, or even as a fun team building exercise for business. But don’t just take my word for it! The Rank Game achieved its Kickstarter goal, being fully funded in 48 hours. It was a Toy Fair 2020 favorite pick
