Everything you need to play this game

A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

This game is played by 4 players. Each player gets a bottle top (pawn).

2

The game starts at the top of the panel and ends at the bottom.

3

The first player spins the rotation disc (or throws the dice).

4

The bottle top of the player will be placed on the image under the indicated number. For example: if a player spins 3, 4 or 5, he will place the bottle cap on the slum area for the first level.

5

Now the player needs to invent a story, explaining why he was born in a slum. The other players listen to the story.

6

After the story has been told, another player will spin the disc and come up with a story about the image he landed on.

7

If all players have invented and shared their stories for the first level, player 1 will spin the rotation disc again and will place his bottle cap on the indicated number of the second level. The player now needs to continue the story he started before.

8

By going through the different levels, you go along your life path, which is very often full of surprises. If you reach the bottom of the panel, you will reflect on what happened during the game: What did you do? Were you lucky or unlucky? What did you like about your imaginary life?

9

To end the game, you can talk about what you would like to change about your life path: Which options would you prefer and why? How are these options linked to your dreams in real life?
