    I am a part of a Secret Santa with my graduating class that has been going on for years now, and the person that this was given to loves games and travel. So when I found your game, I knew this would be beyond perfect for her! This is what she said:

    "Awesome travel themed card game with prompts to meet fellow travelers or get to know peoples travel stories! Love love love it! It will be perfect for my trip to New Zealand this summer!!

    THANKS SECRET SANTA"

    Thank you so much for bringing joy to my SS this holiday season! Anyone reading this review, definitely get this game!!! :-)

    My experience with this game has been excellent -- I would give it six stars if I could. It's the only game I've ever seen of its kind -- an easy to play, conversation-based game that leads to new information, stories and connection in such fun, cool ways. It's a must-have for those who travel or who have an avid traveller in their lives -- and so beautifully packaged, you'll be proud to give it as a gift.

Video summary: A video of some 20 high school students from Victor School playing Paths Crossing during their trip to Guatemala. Their trip was sponsored by FLYTE, one of the nonprofits Paths Crossing supports.

A fun party game that inspires ethically conscious travelling

We as travellers, often more unknowingly than not, have a profound impact on the cultures, economies, animals and environments in the places we visit.

Each year, as increasing numbers of tourists roam the globe, the problem of over-tourism rises along with them.

Yet while we will inevitably leave some kind of impression on the cultures we visit, we can choose to respect and support these communities and minimize the negative environmental effects, by making conscious choices about how we travel.

As a frequent traveller ever concerned with these issues
—and always looking for a fresh card game to while away the downtime—Paths Crossing's creator thought to devise a fun way to spread awareness about sustainable travel, one which would spur us to think more deeply about the myriad human, animal and environmental issues we face as travellers.

After months of hard work, Paths Crossing was born. Now - it is ready to travel with you.

Frequently asked questions
Why don't you accept returns?

We factor the environment into every business decision we make at Paths Crossing - it’s a part of our core mission - and online retail returns are incredibly harmful to the environment: Reverse logistics (or returns) generates 5 billion pounds of landfill waste per year in the U.S. In the return process, trucks burn roughly 1.6 billion gallons of diesel fuel, resulting in 15 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. In 2017, 11.3 percent of all purchases were returned, amounting to $380 billion-worth of goods.
We believe that the “shop online in excess because returns are free” culture is the real issue here. Let us all be smarter online shoppers - research before purchasing, avoid impulse buys, consume less and purchase mindfully.
