A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Gather a group of about 4 players in front of the panel. The game is a collaborative board game, so no need of making teams, since the everyone will be part of the same team.

2

Pull the carton cover back one space, until you see the first activity. Complete the task before continuing the game.

3

Pull the carton cover further. The players will be confronted with a dilemma (for example: going to school – staying on the street). Ask the players to make a choice and to motivate their choice before the street educator. Since the rest of the board

game is still covered by the carton board, the players are never immediately aware about the consequences of their decisions.

4

Pull the cover back in order to see the results of the decision.

5

Continue with the next exercises until you reach the end of the board game.

6

After the game, start up a reflection with the children about their decisions and about the consequences these decisions had on the course of the game.

Extra game information

The Fanjo board game is covered with a carton board. Slide the carton board on top to a little bit to the right after every step until the next activity or the next dilemma is visible. This way players don’t see the consequence of their choice immediately, which

creates the space to start up a discussion with the players.

Variations

It’s important to come up with activities and dilemma’s relevant for your target group. Come up with different dilemma’s like:

  • Health
  • Drug use
  • Jobs and professions
  • Family situation
  • Street life
  • Conflict with family members
  • ...

Specific learning objectives

Learn to imagine the consequences of certain decisions
