Enjoying the side quest deck! Hoping to get the arcane one as soon as I hear it’s restocked!
Great way to add some variety to my journals!
I'm thrilled with my Side Quest Deck. It's full of great ideas to break up a stress feedback loop, or to add spice to a day off.
I really love these journals. I have the side quest cards which I will use for daily goals. Can’t wait for the space journal to come out
Its nice to have a deck of small easy to take care of tasks for days when I need a little help getting going.
LOVE the side quest deck. I ran into some roadblocks today with my tasks I had planned, but still was in "work-mode" and didn't want to relax. Whipped out my handy dandy quest deck and was assigned the noble quest of making my bed! So I did it. My next quest involved reading. Sometimes if I skip something on my to-do list, I'll add in a side quest. These prompts help me stay productive and caring for myself, super nifty. 5 stars
This deck of cards saved my marriage!
The cards are great, but the case was really difficult to open and I had to rip it. Would be nice if this came in a case rather than a paper box that gets caught on itself.
Long story incoming! I bought the Side Quest Deck for myself, and it has been helping me through my depression. I pick a card from the deck, and it’s some sort of organizational task, mindfulness activity, craft/creation task, or something that brings ultimately brings happiness. I made the rules for myself that I can’t put a card away to pick a new one until I’ve completed what I randomly selected. The 2nd card I ever picked was “organize the kitchen”. Let me tell you…this has been a task that’s been looming over my head for YEARS. I spent the past 2 weeks organizing, even though the sink would fill up with dishes and the counter would get dirty and filled with stuff again…I kept plowing through, cleaning and organizing, purging things we don’t need, etc. I finally got to the dreaded corner of the kitchen where things go to die. I’m too short to reach the depths of this corner, and I haven’t touched it in years. I purged all the useless cookbooks that just gather dust (gave them away on my local Buy Nothing Facebook group), deep cleaned, and came up with a plan to make this corner usable space. The picture for my review is what I am most proud of. Since purchasing this deck a month ago, I’ve completed 10 of the 52 cards. I am so thankful that I stumbled upon this deck through a TikTok video. Thank you for creating a fun way to embrace my inner geek and provide a means to dig myself out of the depressive hole I am in. I cannot recommend this item more!!
I love my Sidequest Deck! I came across this on TikTok and it's a useful tool for the days when I feel unmotivated and don't know what to do. I love how whimsical it is! Highly recommend!
The heroes journal is so helpful for my son. He loves setting and achieving new goals with it as a guide, and it’s an incredible gift for people of all ages. Truly wonderful!
I like this deck, it contains tasks that are well-being oriented but not strictly necessary. They are usually a managable size commitment, both in terms of energy and mental oversight. It is fun to be suprised by what you pull, and it is very helpful to have direction for when you have energy but no ideas. I think I would prefer if some of the cards had two or three tier levels, so you could pick the variant that best matches the day's functioning level. For example, yoga: option A: three poses or stretches option B: 15 min yoga
Its a Gift for my Girlfriend so I didnt opened it. But she wanted it so I think it will be good.
Really enjoy the variety of activities.
I love the side quest deck. It's such a fun way to fill spare time. Also got one for a friend and I can't wait to gift it.
I got my Side Quests cards within days of my ordering them and I absolutely adore them! Now, i sometimes cheat on what i want my sidequest to be (i have a problem with doing things i don't want to do) so i sometimes put a card back and get another. That way i actually end up doing the sidequest vs getting annoyed with a sidequest that i don't want to do and dropping the whole thing.
My wife and I use this deck every day, it's a fun way of getting yourself motivated
The side quest deck is so much fun! These provide great daily goals that challenge me to get creative and connect with others. They are also beautifully designed and include a quote on each card, which I love! Highly recommend!
Love this Sidequest Deck! It gives me fun tasks to accomplish throughout the day instead of wasting time scrolling thru social media. Each task is small enough to be doable yet leave you with a feeling of accomplishing more than just the basic “get thru the day” stuff.
Today's side quest was "write a 5 star review for a local small business." Since I live only a few miles from The Hero's Journal HQ that makes them a local small business to me, so I'm here to say how much I like my sidequest deck. Sometimes I will pick a quest out and think "I don't wanna do that", but then I do it. And getting outside my comfort zone a little really enriches my life and my experience with the journal. And, if I really just don't feel up to doing a particular card that day, I put it back and draw another. When I find one that feels like self-care, I add it to my "seize the day" list. I don't know why but it feels extra good to check off a goal I didn't necessarily choose for myself. Anyway, I highly recommend this add-on. Keep 'em coming y'all!
My boyfriend and I love this deck. We take a day, choose cards and complete our quests. It has led us to new places to eat, beautiful views on hikes, becoming closer as a couple and having so much fun!
Bought the Magic Academy one as a gift - ended up trading it with the Adventure one, and taking the magic one for myself.
Even better than the journal itself!:) Maybe a good starter for those who aren't committed to writing too much but want to invest some time to their self-care:) very pretty made, i hope there will be a sequel!:)
I got the side quest pack to add a bit of spice to the main story of my life. It's done just that! I was so surprised at the variety of quests available. Definitely keeps me on my toes. The deck is also illustrated wonderfully, and packaged as well as name-brand card games, so you can take these with you anywhere!
I bought these cards as a gift for my adult son and he loved them. He said they're pretty dope!
These are fun ways to fill time during the day. Instead of grabbing my phone and wasting time scrolling I can pull a card and do a quest.
The cards are so cute and the quest have so much variety! 10/10
I really like the side quests! They are sort of a fun little way to get more done during your day, but it adds an element of surprise and fun to the accomplishment! The cards are well made, beautifully designed, and I love getting a motivational quote along with the side quest!
Love the idea of the Hero's Journal and the new page designs makes this awesome! I have started using the previous version of the Istoria Magic Academy journal and love using it. The added sidequest deck is brilliant! I look forward to working my way through them.
Great prompt's to be more engaged and challenged to participate/communicate with others beyond what is needed to just get through the Day.
This is a fun tool but some of the cards aren’t exactly do able for me, this only applies for about 3 cards so I still highly recommend them if your looking for something to do in the day or inspiration to create your own side quests.
These cards are so cool . Cool Creative and helps get you going if you are having “writers block” don’t know what to do or go to day . Draw a card and see where it takes it and use it to get your daily quest started . Stay at home and do simple ones or go out and explore .
