Everything you need to play this game

A step-by-step guide to play the game


One player chooses a situation from the game board and makes up a short story about it. 


The next player brings in a new element to continue the story (e.g. a new character/object/situation/…). Suggested questions to facilitate the process:

  • What can happen next?
  • Who is the first person looking at?
  • Do you see similar persons on the panel?
  • How does this person feel?
  • Do you see characters with the same or an opposite emotion?

Then, a third player picks a character and again adds up to the story, connected to the previous person. 


Continue until the story is finished.


  • Choose three different characters on the panel. The players link these characters to each other by inventing a story.
  • Search game: the players look for a certain situation as fast as possible. You can use the small squares on the right to search for.
  • Have a general discussion about the market with the players. Suggested questions: What is your favourite place in this market and why? With whom do you go to the market? Why? What are you mostly doing there? Do you have a lot of friends there? Did anything special happen to you at the market yet?

Specific learning objectives

  • Being able to be empathic with another person's situation.
  • Learn to express personal experiences, fantasies, thoughts and feelings through a story.
