"Simply beautiful, from the design to the wonderfully curated prompts, to how you feel after playing it with friends." - David
"This is such a great game for anyone looking to add some laughs or conversation to any social situation. It's perfect for adding some shenanigans to everyday life." - Sam
"Ridiculously creative, never the same twice." - Lloyd
"In two words; heartfelt, goofy" - Ella
"Truthfully, it's one of the most fascinating games I've ever played." - Bela
"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
- Two prompts per card to make the game more portable and less wasteful
- Three different types of prompts are color coded so you can add depth and variability based on your get-together.
- Yellow: silly & action- oriented
- Red: sincere & exploratory
- Blue: ambiguous, requires the card holder to add their own spin to the prompt
- __(parenthetical prompts)__ give you the opportunity to depart from the given prompts and lean into your own creative genius and the moment at hand. They also create long-lasting variability so the game is never the same.
- Wild Cards add an element of chaos and distribute power to players who do not have the die.
- Two 12-sided die in case you lose or make a gift of one.

How To Play
Challenge your friends to get out of their comfort zones in fun and affirming ways using the card prompts and a 12-sided die.
The Dealer (the person holding the die) says, "James if I roll a 6 or 8 and Tater if I roll a 7 or 10 you have to do your best impression of me." Dealer gets consent from James and Tater so she rolls the die. It lands on a 7 so Tater performs his best impression of her. She can now discard and draw a new card and Tater becomes the Dealer. And so on.

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.
This game has an interesting pitch. A game that embraces vulnerability and encourages deeper connections is something that intentionally attempts to highlight one of the best aspects of board gaming. I believe the game succeeds, but requires a group that really needs to be open and know each other. On the other hand, if you ignore that aspect of the game and just play the prompts that focus on having fun, I think you will find the game to encourage creativity in a way most other games aren’t able to.
I really don’t think this game is for everybody. If you have a group that maybe plays tabletop RPG’s, and can improvise interesting things on the fly, then you will have more fun with this game than somebody who doesn’t feel confident in making something up in the moment.
The most fun I had playing Lark was with my cousins whole, sitting around and doing various challenges with occasional moments of wholesome fun in between. In our time playing, we reminisced about times we shared, appreciated, one another, and made a really fun jingle for some commercials.
I think the game is definitely worth the price, and it’s a unique experience that you won’t really get anywhere else. If you have one person who can think outside the box and make some creative props, then you could have a lot of fun with this game. If you don’t, you’ll just have to dig through the cards a little more defined the prompts that are really fun without being a little unvomfy for your average silly game night.
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.
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!
This game will push you out of your comfort zone (in the best way). Playing this game with large groups is sure to lead to some unexpected and memorable times!
Such a fun game to play with new or old friends. Easy to learn and it makes you get creative! We’ve had so many laughs from Lark.
Lark is great! So fun to play and easy to bring anywhere.
