Sweet Surrender Board Game

The cover art for the board game. Very classy.

A great sex toy store sent me this D/s board game to try out, and I must say – I was impressed. You could easily play this game as a vanilla couple looking into kinky sex or with a couple modifications, you can play it as an established D/s couple as well. The board game itself comes in a really pretty box that will easily work for storage for the game. The game includes a playing board, a blindfold, a small rubber flogger, a feather, a dice, two playing pieces, two different massage oils, and Dominance and submission cards.

The game itself was made for vanilla couples looking for kinky sex. You roll the dice and if you land on a “sub” spot, you pick that card, and if you land on a “Dom” spot, you pick that card. All of the sub cards are things to do your partner while the Dom cards are split between making your partner do things to do you and “punishing” your partner. Once you reach the end “final scene”, you both are supposed to take the ideas you’ve made throughout the game and make a scene of your own. All-in-all, this game was made really well, and the slave and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. For us, we just pretended every spot corresponded to our own orientation. (If I land on “sub”, I’d still pick a “Dom” card.) My biggest complaint about most board games is that you get cards like “act out your favorite sex scene”. So we go ahead and do it. And then…what? We had sex, so now the game is just stupid. Sweet Surrender isn’t anything like that. All of the cards are foreplay – only the final scene is supposed to be your “finale”.

The board for the game. Notice the "shadows" for the items and the squares on the outside.

The board itself is pretty cute. It has the squares around the outside to move your pawns on. (By the way, there are only two pawns. This is only meant to be a two player game.) Inside of the squares includes little “shadows” where you’re supposed to place all the supplemental BDSM items it comes with.

The blindfold is probably one of the nicest “cheap” blindfolds I’ve ever seen. The inside is just regular fabric, but the outside is just some faux leather. It makes it feel (and look) really nice, though. My boyfriend also says that it keeps out the most light out of any blindfold that we own. You can wear it by the two elastic strings that attach to the blindfold.

The feather is really cute. It sheds everywhere though straight out of the box. After a couple uses, it will stop shedding so much. It’s just a plain feather with a little peacock-printed feather in front of the black feather to make it pretty. It’s not a pathetic feather at all. It’s pretty well made and even comes with a little “stub” so you can hold onto it while using it on your partner. It’s very soft and sensual.

All of the items (minus the board game pieces and one massage oil packet) included.

The little rubber flogger is actually a lot smaller than it seemed in the cover. I thought we’d be getting a semi-full size rubber flogger. No, the little flogger is only about seven inches tall and the “handle” (that looks suspiciously like an anal toy) measures about two inches of it. It does do the trick as a flogger, though. It’s small enough that you can’t hurt your partner because it can’t gain enough force, but you will definitely feel a little sting while using it. The little handle actually makes it easier to hold as well. It does smell distinctly of rubber straight out of the package. Consider leaving it out to “unsmell” before your first play if the smell of rubber bothers you.

The two Penthouse Massage Oils were included as well. Each oil is only a half of an ounce, but boy, does that half seem to go on forever. One flavor is the warming wild strawberry and the other is warming cherry. Some of the cards tell you to place it on your partner and lick it off. It has a good enough taste for that short-term, but if you keep drawing those cards in a row, you may want to consider skipping it; it’s not tasty the sixth time or so. It does make the skin slick as well as your hand, so you may want to keep some paper towels handy to dry off your hand. (Or make your partner lick it off. Both work.) The little twist tops of the oils come directly off, so these are definitely one-time use after you open them – there’s really no way to reseal it.

The cards themselves are cute. I prefer the black/pink color scheme of the sub cards, but both cards do include good, fun things. The cards themselves are slightly smaller than playing cards, so you could store these in a playing card box. Examples of “Dominance” cards include: “Make your sub crawl over to you on their hands and knees with a blindfold on. Reward them with a good spanking” , “Order your partner to massage your feet” , “Pet your partner and tell them what a good little slave they are. If they fail to show proper gratitude, punish them in a manner of your choosing.” Submission cards include: “”Confess something naughty about yourself to your partner. Beg for punishment and forgiveness.” , “Bend over, grab your ankles, and beg your partner to spank you.” , “Crawl from one side of the room to the other. Your partner may then give you a reward of their choice.” , “Place the feather tickler between your teeth, and run it all over your lover’s body.” There are 25 different cards for both categories.

All-in-all, I was pretty impressed by this kit. It got my boyfriend and I giggling and having fun. It did bring a lot of new actions to the table. (The boyfriend remarked “All I’m doing is playing with your feet!” in a fit of giggles.) It does make for a great game to play to try out new BDSM actions with your partner. The Sweet Surrender Board game is available at this sex toy store I trust. It’s a game I recommend every couple buy.
