A step-by-step guide to play the game


Divide the players into groups of maximum four.


Start a group discussion whereby you involve family responsibilities and child labour. Suggested questions:

  • What characters do you see on the panel?
  • Which situations do you see on the panel?
  • How do you think the characters feel? Which emotions do you see?
  • What do you think will happen next?

The players tell what they think the characters on the panel could be saying. Fill in the speech bubbles by writing their words on the blackboard.


The players look for similarities between the picture on the panel and their own situation. They can express how they feel about it. Suggested questions:

  • Were you ever involved in a similar situation?
  • How did you feel during this situation?
