Cards Against Mundanity - Teamwork & Employee Retention Game


#1 Teamwork game and program for remote, hybrid, international, and multi-location teams. More than 100,000 people are using it. Please email me directly at with any questions. 

Trust is the one thing that changes everything.”

All the greatest teams have one thing in common - extremely high levels of trust, caring, and connection that brings out the absolute best in each person. It enables teams and organizations to accomplish seemingly impossible feats together.

Why? Trust is THE essential ingredient, lubricant, glue that brings together an organization's business strategy and people strategy. It’s the key to high performance and great communication and teamwork.

Cards Against Mundanity is a structured culture- and team-building process to build extremely deep trust, caring, closeness and connection authentically in minutes (safely) by sharing deeply personal and meaningful experiences in groups.

It can be used by an individual, team and entire company. It works exceptionally well for remote, virtual teams located across the world. Just use video when you play it.

HR professionals and departments use it. Sales leaders and managers use it. Executive teams use it. Literally every job function, size company, in every industry (including education, sports, startups, and more).

Cards Against Mundanity (the corresponding workshop) is being used by more than 100,000+ employees at Amazon, Southwest Airlines, Ernst & Young, Google, Gillette, Microsoft, Oracle, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Worldwide Express, CareHere, Oklahoma City Thunder (NBA team), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Novartis, Merck, Intel, and Thermo Fisher Scientific, and many small- and medum-sized colonies, along with government organizations, education and nonprofits.

What’s the benefit? It’s a scientific approach to maximize performance, engagement, teamwork, communication, problem-solving and innovation in any size company and any industry.

How does it do that? It skyrockets trusts to the highest level in minutes (versus a decade) by sharing deeply personal, meaningful experiences in groups. 99% of teams never accomplish what this process can do. It’s your competitive advantage.

It’s based on a famous research study where 30% of the participants (who were complete strangers) created the closest relationships in their lives in 45 minutes.

Individuals can use this to accelerate their career success by building great relationships with coworkers, managers, leaders and every person they interact with.

It can also be used with third parties such as customers, prospects, and partners to close deals faster, upsell more, etc.

I also conduct onsite and remote programs and workshops teach leaders, managers, employees, and HR department how to use the strategies, processes, and game to maximize performance, teamwork, communication, and much more. It's also used to reduce individual and team conflicts. It's being used in new employee orientation and onboarding, as well as the hiring process. Companies are using this as the foundation for their culture. 

I'm a frequent speaker and also use the game as part of an interactive presentation that builds deep, close relationships in minutes. Conferences and companies have me conduct it at the beginning of their event to get people talking, comfortable, building relationships, and maximizing engagement.

Success Stories (30+ testimonials)

“Jason’s presentation and Cards Against Mundanity game instantly resonated with our group. It was the start of new and much deeper and meaningful connections across our organization. In my experience as a sales leader, I know that candid, vulnerable conversations are absolutely critical to building a strong foundation of trust within a team. When strong relationships are fostered, salespeople reach a higher level of engagement and performance levels. Jason’s unique methodology ensures a quick path to skyrocketing trust and creating candid dialogue in a really fun way. Every sales organization would significantly benefit from his workshop and game. You can apply it with customers and prospects as well.”

Matthew Smith 
Senior Director, Head of Corporate Sales, Southwest Airlines and President of AA-ISP

“The workshop and game were excellent. The team was very appreciative of the team building game and workshop. It kept coming up as one of the best experiences they’ve ever had. They were able to quickly open up, be vulnerable and build much stronger and deeper relationships that extended beyond their small groups to our large, global team. Throughout the following two days, we hosted some guests from other groups, and we asked them to answer random cards in front of the audience. Their answers were surprisingly deep and instantly helped to establish trust between them and our teams. It made each of the sessions in our off-site much more valuable. I’d highly recommend this for any team and team off-site.”

Alberto Grazi 
Senior Leader and Head of the Video Solutions Group, Google

“Getting to work with Jason was a game-changer. I thought my team was close before playing Jason’s Cards Against Mundanity, but seeing how much they bonded (and learned about each other) during the hour we spent playing was amazing. It significantly increased our teamwork, communication, engagement, and problems solving. I cannot stress enough – ANY relationship will be strengthened by playing this game. I’ve played with family members, friends and coworkers in other departments and the results speak for themselves. Beyond that, Jason has continued to offer his insights & suggestions on how I can better navigate difficult situations in the workplace and manage my team better. I’m a much better leader with a higher functioning team after my time with Jason.”

Kate Stott 
Director of Enterprise Operations, WorldWide Express ($1.5B+ company)

“Our clinic was struggling to maintain positive morale and it was causing significant challenges. After attending Jason’s workshop, I was able to take his strategies, best practices, and tools and put it into action. After our first team building session, I noticed a significant difference in how the group was communicating and collaborating with each other. Their performance also improved. The transformation has been incredible and continues to grow. Word quickly spread within my company on how successful this experience was so there are plans to use Cards Against Mundanity in other clinics across the nation. I highly recommend any team and organization play his team-building game and leverage his expertise. It’s business changing.”

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
