Surprise yourself with random cards

Creative thinkers from Albert Einstein to Mark Twain describe a new idea as the combination to two existing thoughts – which is why we've designed Shooglebox to make it easier to stumble upon unexpected connections.

So, if you’re looking for inspiration, why not ask Shooglebox to surprise you by offering up randomly generated cards that might spark an unexpected thought, connection or new idea?


Use the plus icon at the bottom right of the screen to add a card and choose the Surprise Me option – the icon with a question mark.

You can scroll through the randomly generated cards – choosing to Discard or Add each card to the box or stack you're in.

If you're using the Shooglebox iOS or Android app just swipe left to discard and right to add.

To leave Surprise me, just click the X in the top left-hand corner.
