Simon spoke to Robert Burgin from ABC Radio Sunshine Coast. You can listen to Simon talk about the game and its beginnings on this link, about 1 hour 32 minutes into the program (and just after the song What I Like About You by The Romantics, an old favourite of ours!).

Speaking of songs, does anyone have a playlist for their funeral? 

My cousin, in her meticulous funeral planning, curated a selection of songs by her all-time favourite artist, Prince. Music can evoke so many memories and it was comforting to hear songs that she loved. Now I can’t help but associate Purple Rain with her; every time I hear it, I think of her. It’s wonderful.

Carked It! offers three music-centric cards for contemplating how music fits into your plans:

Dance at the Funeral – plan a lively gathering where friends and family joyously dance around your final resting place.

Dance at the funeral bye card

Mix Tape – craft a personalized playlist featuring your favourite songs, ensuring that your funeral becomes a celebration of your musical journey.

Ashes to Vinyl – pick a playlist you love and have your ashes transformed into a personalized vinyl record—a tangible legacy for loved ones.

In today’s episode, Tsultrim speaks with Simon Lowe, the creator of a fabulous card game called “Carked It!”.  Simon developed this, at times, very funny card game as a way of connecting people and opening the door to friends, family and even strangers, to talking about life, death and beyond in a light-hearted, fun, and positive way. As we all know, death is certain, but the manner and time of our death is uncertain. But this lovely card game will surprise and undoubtedly ease you gently and with lots of humour, into the important conversations that we all need to have about the inevitability of our death, the importance of life and to ensure we prepare well for both…..before it’s too late.
