Hello and welcome to the Polygon Show and Overboard crossover! In this episode, we’re playing Fog of Love, a customizable romantic comedy turned into a board game.

The game is designed for two players, but we’ve assigned teams for this round. Each team represents a partner in the relationship, and are given choices in “scenes” to find out more about the other person and see if there’s a connection that can be made. At the start, each side chooses traits, an occupation and a name. The other team gets to choose your character’s outstanding physical features. What attracted you to this person? What did you first notice? Was it their charming counterfeit watch? Body odor? Broad shoulders?

Fog of Love isn’t about “winning” or how the relationship ends — it explores the nature of your beautiful (or in our case, very strange) relationship and how it could evolve.

Will internet celebrity Blake and stoner lawyer Gabby (pronounced goh-bee) make it as a couple? Find out!
