A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Take one of the cards, perform the challenge stated on the card and record a video of yourself as proof (see additional game information).

2

On the video, say the deed and at the end of the challenge, mention a person who should take on the challenge to take part in the game.

Then, that person too needs to complete the task and can nominate another person. This way, players initiatie the 'challenge of goodness'.

This is such an original game. I really like the idea of doing something good for someone else in a game. By sharing it online, you can inspire so many people to do the same.
