The Creators Behind Head Scratcherz

Gabrielle and Douglas Lichterman

Head Scratcherz is the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Gabrielle and Douglas Lichterman.

We were inspired by salon-style discussion groups we hosted weekly for many years in New York City. Our friends and colleagues loved returning again and again to talk about a wide array of interesting topics.

After moving to Saint Petersburg, Florida, we continued this tradition by hosting a local MeetUp group for four years, which attracted hundreds of discussion-loving folks from around the area.

Enthused by the success of our discussion groups, we wanted a way to help other people outside of our groups enjoy their own inspiring discussions, too.

So, we compiled our favorite thought-provoking questions into convenient-to-carry decks of cards to help folks enjoy deeper, more meaningful—and fun!—conversations over dinner, while traveling, during parties, on dates and everywhere else. And, that’s when Head Scratcherz was born!

Form Your Own Head Scratcherz Group

If you love thought-provoking conversations as much as we do, you can create your own discussion group, too. Assemble conversation-loving friends or use MeetUp.com to find others who enjoy deeper talks.

Use our Head Scratcherz Original Edition deck to get your group started, then our Starterz deck to help you come up with head-scratching questions of your own!

Where to Find Head Scratcherz

Head Scratcherz is available exclusively from TheGameCrafter.com, a U.S.-based small business started by three avid gamers who wanted to help game designers get their card and board games manufactured and sold more easily.

We’re happy to support TheGameCrafter.com and recommend it to gamers, teachers, students, parents and anyone else who’s had an idea for a game, but didn’t know how to bring it to life.
