A step-by-step guide to play the game


The cards are shuffled and divided amongst the players (current version: max 4 players since 4 themes and 16 cards, but more themes/cards/players possible).

See additional game information for a list with all the themes and cards per theme.


Players draw cards from each other until one player holds 4 cards of the same theme. This is a 'quartet'.


The player holding the 'quartet' pins its cards on the game board whereby she/he ranks the cards the cards from 1 - 4 depending on what is more important to him/her. The objective is to have a group discussion on the theme once the cards are in a certain order on the board.


Afterwards the game continues and the remaining players repeat steps 2 and 3 until each theme has been completed on the board and discussed.

Very simple but cool quartet game about things that make children happy! The card deck of 16 cards is ready in a second, and allows youth workers to use a playful game methodology to discuss serious topics. The ranking of the 4 cards is a very good idea. Fun guaranteed, thanks for sharing team PWC!
