How to play
It was designed with flexibility in mind, so that players can make their own instructions. Here is one option, for more info you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is important to me in my life?
What do I find important in my work?
What do I find important in my relationship?
What do I find important in the education of my children?
What do I find important in my faith?
Choose one of the questions and keep it in mind until the end!
Go through the cards and make a rough pre-selection of values in line with your question. The rest of the cards can be put aside. Choose 10 cards from this rough selection that you think represents you the best. Put aside all other cards. From these 10, choose the card that is least important to you and put it away. Eventually, 5 cards will remain. Place them in order of importance for you.
You can use these values as an insight to answer your question. Example: I find it important to have …(value) in my …(chosen topic, i.e. relationship,work).
