This game has a wonderful concept, to teach children how make decisions based on principles. There are two versions of this game, the kids and teen-adult. I bought both of them when I visited their booth at the toy and game show at Chicago’s Navy Pier. I also had time to meet and discuss the game with the game’s developer. He has a good item here, and I suggested he market it more in therapeutic catalogs and at social work/counseling conferences. He thought this was a great idea. I hope to see him in Chicago at one of our conferences soon (of course I will invite him). The game reminds me of the UnGame but with a different set up and updated questions. In fact the questions from the Ungame can be used with this game board. I really like that student learn to match the principles in the game (honest, courage, loyalty, service, trust, love, work,patience) with the scenarios. In the past I had a game called “Scruples for Kids,” and it presented similar scenarios for you to address and advance along the path of the game. This game assists you with opening up the lines of communication with your students, while discussing how to handle life’s challenges. This is an excellent group game.
