What does ‘advanced facilitators only’ mean?

This activity is likely to be confronting for some individuals and upsetting for others. It is possible that teams without high levels of openness and emotional maturity may act inappropriately. While highly impactful, we do not recommend that this activity is run by first time facilitators or those who aren’t confident in their ability to manage a room and lead difficult conversations. Think about your audience and consider if this will be the right fit.

What do we need to play this game online?

You can play this game by sharing the playing board and persona cards electronically. We recommend using a shared digital workspace e.g. Microsoft Whiteboard where you can make it more fun by creating tokens for each player to move along the board.

Can we buy a physical playing board and cards?

Not yet! A life-size playing board is in the works. Subscribe to our mailing list below to be the first to know when it is available for purchase.

Do you do custom boards?

Yes! Get in contact if you would like more information about custom activities targeted towards your specific organizational requirements.
