AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) November 26, 2019
Today BestSelf Co., the leading voice in making self-development fun, announced the launch of their first game, ironically called the WorstSelf Game to Roast and Toast Our Worst Selves. Just in time for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and holiday shopping, the WorstSelf game lets people own up to the fact that everyone has bad habits, for example: “You don’t ever commit to an invitation in case something more fun comes up,” or “You oversleep for work but blame traffic. Every. Single. Day.” Available online at the company’s website, the game is available for $25 and can be shipped anywhere in the world.
WorstSelf is the first game unveiled by BestSelf Co., and builds on the success the company saw with their new Discovery Decks, which were released earlier this year and focused more on introspection and use with a partner (the new Intimacy Deck) or solo / at work - like the Courage over Comfort, Edison, and Icebreaker decks. With 150 prompts, the WorstSelf card game is all about the fun of toasting and roasting friends, perfect for holiday parties. The small deck can easily be carried in a backpack, purse, computer bag.
“We had a lot of fun creating this new game. We are big fans of Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity, so we definitely wanted to bring the best aspects of both of those games to ours. As a result, we think people who like those games will love our new WorstSelf Game,” said BestSelf Co. CEO and Co-Founder Cathryn Lavery, who has received the Forbes 30 Under 30 distinction and Fast Company’s Innovation by Design award. “And we’ve all had those questions go through our heads - am I actually the black sheep in the family? Am I the most anal-retentive in my group of friends? Or maybe, do they really know how annoying their gum-chewing is?”
The trick to the success of Lavery’s approach to product development lies in the element of gamifying personal development, or in other words, making the hard work that Brene Brown talks about seem fun. Ms. Lavery describes this mix of taking real-life character flaws and taking the seriousness out of our approach to “fixing” ourselves: “We all have issues, none of us are perfect. And while we believe as a company that we should be working toward creating our best self ever, sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. The most well-rounded, healthiest people I know are able to laugh at their own worst traits.”
For those who are ready to laugh at themselves - and their friends and family - the new WorstSelf deck can be purchased at BestSelf.Co and for a limited time only. To purchase a BestSelf Co. deck, visit https://bestself.co/collections/prompt-decks
