A LGBTQ expansion to hit romantic comedy board game Fog of Love is in the works from designer Nikki Valens. Begin by each player choosing blue or pink for their player roles. You’ll then snag the cardholder, choice tokens, and token box with your color and place them in front of you. Read the card out loud. Then make your choices and resolve any additional effects. How to resolve these will be explained below.
In terms of playing the game, it’s a storytelling experience rather than a traditional board game. You and your partner need to actively step into the character roles for it to work.

Notice that each player's side has a color: blue and pink.The result also affects each character’s satisfaction, plus their overall disposition, which is tidily broken down into six core elements – discipline, curiosity, extroversion, sensitivity, gentleness and sincerity – that shift up or down over the course of the game, resulting in a final balance in each half of the couple that dictates the way the story concludes.
At the end of the game each player will be committed to an end objective, these may be complementary, allowing you both to win together. Though it's quite possible that even then only one, or neither of you managed to reach your goal.

Amy’s Thoughts Don’t forget to take your and your partner’s destinies into account when you make challenging decisions. If you can’t deduct what destinies your co-player is trying to fulfill, you may be left broken-hearted in the end.Fog of Love proves to be the game for two players. Besides, it can help you with creating and playing two vivid characters. They’re the ones that meet, fall in love, and face challenges putting things together to make relationships work.

It’s simple yet far more impactful and fun than you might expect, thanks to the sharp writing on the cards and the inevitable outbursts of debate (after a disagreement) or joy (with a match). Changing a feature or an occupation will impact your personality tokens. Remove the token provided by the discarded card, and add a new one for the new card.
