Check Mate Retreat

The Real on Relationships


Welcome to the Check Mate Retreat. We are the Founders and Co-Creators of Check Mate Games, a card game that helps to create a fun environment for you and your mate to ask those tough questions. College-sweethearts, best friends, Husband & Wife and now parents; we have taken the journey that many of you have taken and learned early on just how important it is to keep the lines of communication open. We know how important open communication has been for our family and now we endeavor to share what we've learned throughout the years with you.

"Success begins with communication."
