Klarna, the leading global banking, payments and shopping service, has launched the Money Talks card game to spark genuine and meaningful conversations around spending, saving and shopping to help break the stigma around money.  

Informed by the Social Vulnerability Scale, which is proven to foster closeness in conversation through mutual vulnerability, Klarna’s Money Talks card game will facilitate open and honest discussions between players in a positive and fun way. Reflecting on the Scale, the game comprises three levels and a wildcard round, with each level touching on a different theme, including relationships, personal habits, mindsets, and financial basics. 

Launching in collaboration with some of the UK’s most popular podcasters on the Acast Creator Network, including Vicky Pattison, Kate Thornton and comedy duo Will Mellor and Ralf Little, listeners will be able to hear the hosts play the game firsthand. Listeners will hear the worries and anxieties their favourite hosts have experienced and be encouraged to start their conversations with their friends.  

Emily Thomas, UK Consumer PR Lead at Klarna, said: “Sparking honest conversations about money is the first step in reducing the stigma and anxiety surrounding this taboo topic. At Klarna, we are dedicated to educating our users about responsible spending and encouraging financial wellness. The Money Talks card game will do just that, by having fun but also opening up honest discussions around spending, shopping and wellbeing.”

Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Klarna, the global retail bank, payments and shopping service with 90 million users globally, officially launched in Ireland today, empowering Irish consumers with a better shopping experience and greater control, transparency and choice over how they pay. Irish consumers will be able to shop online and split their purchases into three interest-free equal payments (‘Pay in 3’) through both the Klarna app and directly via integrated partner retailers.
