Developed in India, this colorful and thought-provoking interactive game promises to be challenging for Indians living inside and outside of Mumbai, where it was developed on the city which it is based. It promises to also be interesting for anyone watching India and is saying, "Who ARE these people?"

Culture Cards™. Why?

Mumbai, India is a place the world is hearing spoken of more and more in the news—yet about whom the world knows little. There is a need for us all to learn about India and what makes it tick, really tick, and that means answering the question, “Who are India’s people?”

Mumbai, India is a culture that is not just one but a multitude; a representation of all of India; a place where cultural, religious, caste and economic differences separate people; a place that is changing so quickly that individual cultures are being swallowed up—disappearing with urbanization. It is a place in need of preserving its cultural identities. It is in need of appreciating its own cultural distinctives.

Culture Cards™ promises to help answer the world’s question of who Indian people are in a thought-provoking way, and to help Indians appreciate their own culture and those of their countrymen. An excerpt from the back of the box:

“It’s worth it. As you play with friends, 100 cards challenge what you value in Mumbai’s diversity of cultures—and in your own culture. Culture Cards™ ask questions about people, places, geography, the arts and history in Mumbai. 'Wild' cards stretch your thinking and your preconceptions. This interactive game will get you talking with your friends about what’s important. Really important. And that’s worth it.”
