About the Game

The goal of Cloud Nine is to collect and share all the special things in life that bring you happiness and joy, while learning what everyone else loves.

The Cloud Nine deck is made up of Cloud Cards and Action Cards:

  • Cloud Cards each feature something that brings joy, with prompts to inspire conversation.
  • Action Cards have special instructions that affect gameplay and strategy.

Like You Think You Know Me, Flatter Me, Rabbit Rabbit, and Lost for Words, Cloud Nine was funded on Kickstarter, raising nearly $10,000 from 222 backers.

How to Play

To start the game, draw nine random Cloud Cards from the deck and place them face up in a 3x3 grid, known as "the Sky." The Sky is shared by all players, and must always be filled as cards are taken.

On each turn, players can choose from one of two options:

  1. Take a Cloud Card from the Sky. If you see something you love in the Sky, take the Cloud Card and add it to your own collection. Replace the card you took with a new card from the deck.
  2. Remove a row of Cloud Cards from the Sky. If you don't love any of the Cloud Cards, you can discard an entire row in any direction, replacing it with three new cards from the deck to choose from. If you still don't love any of the cards, your turn ends without adding a new card to your collection.

If any card you've drawn from the deck is an Action Card, you must use it immediately, following its instructions before ending your turn.

The first player to collect nine Cloud Cards is the winner! Now try spinning all nine cards into a story about how you'd love to spend one beautiful day packed full with things you love. (Bonus: Go out and do it!)
