Fog of Love
|Publisher||Hush Hush Projects|

Fog of Love is a card game for two players who act out a stormy love affair. You play from the very first sparks of attraction through in-law encounters, awkward situations, arguments, parties, thoughtful gifts, secret affairs, kids, and reconciliations to a hopefully happy ending.
Each player has a character made up from different personality traits that influence what they desire and want to avoid. You can become a one-legged, disorganized, cocky female pilot who gets a kick out of adventures; a kind, nerdy male tv celebrity who is ambitious and sensual; or a cute, flirtatious, impulsive and cynical female florist with a big nose-piercing. The possibilities are almost endless. Will the characters end up in a satisfying relationship and get married — or will it all end in a dramatic break-up?
You learn what it takes to make the relationship work, build insights into each other, and hopefully find out whether your partner is sincere or just bluffing.
Each player alternately introduces crucial scenes with important choices to be made. As in real life, you have to decide between what is best for you and what is best for the relationship – and you need to consider what your partner decides as both of your decisions will have impact on the shared outcome.
Balance, intuition, and calculated choices are key to success in this romantic game, where both can end as winners, losers, or something in between...
