Lark /lärk/ n. Something done for fun, especially something mischievous or daring; an amusing adventure or escapade.
We believe that there are better ways for us to belong together. We're here for abundance through play. And maybe a bit of mischief along the way.
I’ve played with a mix of friends - some of us are avid gamers and some of us abhor them, but everyone enjoys Lark.
This game is very special in how it always yields experiences you never would have had without the game and without the specific group of people.
Everyone has a unique lens and since the players effectively make the game themselves based on their interpretations of the prompts, it's always a different experience with each group.
It is not a game that can be played all the time, everywhere. It needs a group of people who are excited to be creative and to experience things. It's not great when people just want to relax or are not interested in thinking about themselves or others. But when you can get a group of people willing to do some weird and spontaneous yet good natured stuff it is a special experience.
Also I recommend using the die less to make odds and more just to choose who does each task. People don't generally like to put creative effort into an idea just for it to not happen. But I can see the odds system being helpful in certain groups who are less open, just not in any I played with.
This game is more of a way to experience your friends than a competition. The goal is to open up and create deeper connections with laughter along the way
We played this with our best friends, and I have to say, it just might be one of the best weekends, ever.
I’m so happy I ordered Lark, and I just know it’ll be a regular choice from our game chest. Thank you for putting so much thought into Lark.
Looks really fun and flexible — a combination of conversational games and improv. I haven’t had an opportunity to play it yet, though.
Played this with a new friend. We so enjoyed getting to know one another better with this well designed game.
Such a great balance between light & fun and deep & philosophical.
Looking forward to sharing with more friends and playing with a larger group of folks!
Lark has proven to be a favorite in a short amount of time. The thoughtfulness that has gone into the questions and the play shines through. We have been singing Larks praises to our friends! Thank you for creating such a connecting, playful, whole hearted game!
Lark is a game I love breaking out and playing with people that I want to get to know better and in intimate spaces, at parties where some folks know some other folks, but not everyone knows everyone else, or even just pulling out prompts with a partner one on one for a date night. The game is fun and endearing, and does a great job of opening up to those with whom they are playing. It can be raucous or cozy, playable with either a cup of tea or a shot of whiskey in your hands.
Personally, my favorite prompt is the “Giving Good Compliments” one. Watching folks reflect on compliments that have impacted them, sharing them, and then giving one is so sincere and heart warming that it will brighten your whole day
I’m not much of a game person but I LOVE Lark. It’s the best game ever!! Some of my favorite moments so far are my monologue as a balloon caught in the wind, my sister’s blinded race across her house to touch her cat, and my husband’s anti-pasta murder mystery podcast. For real, don’t get this game if laughing to the brink of death is not your thing. I love that this game can be anything & is amazingly different every time! We’re thinking of bringing some cards on a backpacking trip in the spring & can’t wait to share the silliness with more friends!
Lark is fun, engaging, and very adaptable! I love how versatile the game is to the environment in which you want to play. You can play with a partner/good friend and use the cards to deepen your connection with one another, or play in a group to help people get to know each other. It's the perfect blend of silly and serious, so a great game to keep around.
Too many of the games I’ve played with friends are rooted in negativity. My partner and I bought this game because we knew this was going to be uplifting and still extremely fun. It does not disappoint!! What a pleasure to play with a loved one!
Lark is a really creative and spontaneous game. It takes on the personality of the people playing it. I love how Lark can inspire thoughtful discussion one minute, and the next we're doing doing completely unexpected and hilarious!
Wanna actually finally have one of those fun, meaningful, memory-making, peak nights with your friends that you assumed would be easier to come by? Play Lark.
I love Lark because you can bring it anywhere and play it whenever you want to spice up a social gathering and have unexpected adventures. It's a versatile, creative, playful game that anyone can make their own!
This game is my favorite! I would definitely recommend playing with any size group but especially large ones! This game makes for the most fun on holidays or any get together! It is sure to lead to great times had by all!

Here's What People Are Saying
“For real, don’t get this game if laughing to the brink of death is not your thing. I love that this game can be anything & is amazingly different every time! I feel more connected to people when I play it & I feel GOOD. Playing Lark makes me realize why I typically don't like playing other games: they generally bring out competitiveness and separation in people.” - Amoryn S
"I never thought I’d be describing a card game as beautiful, but Lark is in fact that game- simply beautiful, from the design, to the wonderfully curated prompts, to how you feel after playing it with friends." - David P
"Ridiculously creative, never the same twice. My friends love this game. Like a lot." - Lloyd V
"In two words; heartfelt, goofy." - Ella K
"Concept is super easy and I basically cry from laughing every time I play. 10/10 would recommend." - Nicolette
"I've played it in 20 minutes with friends before dinner where we draw a few quick cards to laugh and connect, in hours-long sessions where we make our way through all the cards in the deck, and in lengths and settings in between... Lark is a joyful experience!" - Olivia L
"Truthfully, it's one of the most fascinating games I've ever played." - Bela C
"There are a lot of mean-spirited party games out there; this is not one of them. Always good-natured, it elicits thoughtfulness, creativity, and hilarity in turn, depending on the card, the whims of the dodecahedron, and the mood of the crowd. Never the same, never boring. Beautiful design, beautiful content. Highly recommended." - Dan R
