Smol Tok is an ice-breaking and community-building card game designed to grow meaningful conversations, trust, and relationships - minus the bullshit. Every card is a question, and every question a peek into what makes us human.

The Smol Tok universe is expanding. It currently consists of five editions that delve deeper into life, love, and everything in between.
