A step-by-step guide to play the game


A player chooses one situation from the game board and talks about what is happening and what is risky in that specific situation (e.g. a child is being beaten because it didn't make enough money on the street. Father beats with chair and is clearly drunk. Other child witnesses what is happening.) 


After explaining the situation, the other players must find a possible continuation/action to react to the situation on the game board. Possible actions to choose from are:

  • Find help
  • Take action: confrontation or avoidance
  • Be passive, don't act
  • Joker: they can choose themselves 

All the players make a roleplay out of it and discuss the chosen reaction. Topics that you can talk about in the discussion are: Shelter, love, freedom, money, clothes, school, safety, friendship, health, food. 


Repeat with another situation of the game board.

This panel is full of situations street-connected children are confronted with on a daily basis... The storytelling methodology is a fun, creative and accessible way to reflect with the children about risks they face on the streets and how to deal with them.
