IMPACT 0445: BUILDING MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS WITH A CARD GAME
What started as a mini passion project in 2018 became a reality when Isaiah Chia, 20, started a Kickstarter project to fund his card game, Table Talk. Raising $11,112 of their $10,000 goal in 2020, the card game promotes meaningful and intentional conversations between players to get to know each other better.
Through this card game, Isaiah aims to alleviate loneliness among youth by improving the quality of relationships with meaningful conversations. He mentions that depression has risen 15% among Singaporean youth, and a strong social support system is one of the factors that lower the risk of falling into depression or other mental health issues.
