A game is born
In early 2015 I was trying to think up ways to spread the use of empathy in a way that would be easy and even fun for people to use. So by July I created version one of a card game called Play To Evolve. I started by printing it on cardstock using my cheap home inkjet printer. A few months later professional looking decks were being shipped all over the world.
Can kids play?
I gave quite a few decks to schools in hopes that children would start learning empathy using this method. Sadly, the game was too complex in some ways for younger kids. Even some adults struggled. So, after many play tests and iterations, as well as new ideas as to ways to use the cards, this latest version is the easiest yet to play and suitable for a younger and older audience.
I've also added a lower-priced "pre order" option for those who want to save money and are okay waiting 3-4 weeks for delivery.
Learn empathy through a game?
Yes! Playing this card game will
- Level up your family's emotional intelligence.
- Deepen all your relationships.
- Increase responsibility and power.
- Decrease susceptibility to manipulation.
- Improve negotiation skills.
- Heighten awareness of other perspectives.
- Shift into having a more positive outlook.
Who - besides you - does your purchase help?
Every deck purchased contributes to my ability to print more at a lower cost. This is causing a gradual lowering of price so that more people can afford the game. Increased resources also means I can spend more time working on the mobile app version of the game that I'm building, which will be far cheaper because of printing and shipping costs being zero.
Where can I get it?
If you live in Austin, you can come to my free weekly "Emotional Intelligence Play Group" where I usually carry extra decks with me and we play the game. Details and RSVP:
