There are people out there putting money in vending machines and then quickly walking away. On purpose.

Others are asking strangers to cut in front of them in line. It’s all part of the game.

“Sneaky Cards: Play It Forward” is a new card game that’s the ultimate reminder that random daily moments and interactions with strangers can be a lot of fun.

It’s the ultimate way to mix up your day and challenge yourself.

Sometimes you interact with people, sometimes you do a nice thing, sometimes you make art.

You may have to find someone who provided great service, and then give them an extra-nice tip.

Or you may have to approach the first person who makes you smile and give them the card that tells them so.

Or maybe you have to give someone a card without them even knowing you gave it to them!

Sometimes you gotta be sneaky. That’s how Sneaky Cards works.

One part sneaky, one part delightful happiness. And because you can register your cards online before you play, you get to track where in the city, state, country — or world! — your completed cards end up.

You never know if the person you gave a card to at that coffee shop will pass it on to someone else, or rather, play it forward, and register it online. But you’ll get an email alert if they do. Because … Internet coolness!

The game has come a long way. It was originally based on a winning concept in 2009 by then-16-year-old Harry Lee and later brought to life by game developer Cody Borst. It’s starting to roll out for purchase to the masses, but you can still download the free version and cut out your own cards too.

It’s a game that turns everyday life into a game of sharing fun and happiness.

We get into our day-to-day grind and it can get so boring and repetitive that we barely look up to see what’s actually going on around us. A game like Sneaky Cards can definitely make your day more interesting or enhance a conference or party that’s already awkward to begin with. Might as well mix it up!

It’s fun to get excited and be pulled out of your comfort zone sometimes — not to mention be surprised with random acts of kindness.

I think Sneaky Cards does all those things quite beautifully and can even make for a good story (or several of them).

Getting to know one another (and ourselves!) helps to expand our minds and be our very best. It may even make someone’s day.
