Cards of the characters


The game was tested during the training course- Game in Action, funded by Erasmus+, with team players.
We realized than having Marc like character was useful.
Finally, one of the players gave us the ultimo answer, every character has his skills, but they need each other to be powerful. That is the idea we wanted to discuss than in the end the difference is a power for the community. Everyone is without prejudge, and all skills helps the community.
To create collaboration between the children, it will be nice to play with team and the ending discussion is a team work .
The game can’t be without the questions, and the discussion, if not it’s just a strategy and enjoying game.
The evolution of the game and the discussion can create empathy and consciousness of the real liufe.
