Analog Card Game To Reduce Smartphone Usage
1. A Game for Partners
2 people agree to the game. They each get a series of cards they can play when they catch the other doom-scrolling their phone.
2. Requirement: Book
Each player should have a book that they can read or even share a book. If they are already working on a book (e.g. a novel), great, but any reference/textbook/religious text can be used - the kind of book you can open on a random page and learn something. Paper magazines or newspapers could do if they have long-form articles.
3. Rule - Deferrment
If the person does not perform the task required by the card immediately, the penalty doubles. i.e. they can continue using their smartphone but will end up doubling the quantity of the task.
