...and then we held hands is a co-operative game about finding balance. To win, the 2 players must complete objectives and reach the center of the board.
The players take turns trying to fulfill the current common emotional objective by discarding emotion cards to move from node to node. They must do this without verbal communication, emphathizing and always considering each other's situation when making a move.
A player can use their own cards or their partner's, but if their move causes their partner to be unable to movie, the players lose and the game ends. While moving from node to node, their balance shifts, and they are not able to refill their hand.
The game features a card-splaying mechanism in which players change their "perspective" to reveal a new set of options.
The players win by meeting in the center while in a balanced state and within 1 turn of each other - something quite difficult, and therefore very rewarding when achieved.
