More than 100 fun challenges and thought provoking questions,
backed by science and packed into a card game that will make you
and your friends happier.
A GAME WITH CLEAR OBJECTIVES,
STRATEGIES & AN EXTRA FUN FACTOR
Each game you’ll play will be a totally unique experience.
Each card has a unique illustration - and there are 132 cards in once deck!
We decided to add an extra category and call it joy, because … why not?
We’re adults, we can do whatever we want!
THE SCIENCE OF WELL-BEING
Decades of research in a deck of cards!
The theory that heavily inspired us is called
the Six-factor Model of Psychological Well-being
which was developed by an American psychologist
Carol D. Ryff. Her work relies on knowledge that
goes far back into the past – to ancient Greeks and Aristotle.
He wrote in his Nicomachean Ethics that the goal of life is not
merely to pursue pleasures, but to live virtuously and develop
a strong sense of meaning.
Ryff came up with six areas that are crucial for one’s
psychological well-being: purpose in life, personal growth,
self-acceptance, autonomy, environmental mastery and positive relationships.
What we did was scour the psychology literature to find various
questions and challenges that a person could easily do to improve
those six areas.
THE WELL-BEING GAME IS FOR YOU
We’re certain you’re gonna love playing this game
We cannot tell you hom much fun we’ve had creating this game.
Yes, we scoured through hundreds of articles to find the best
questions and challenges that would actually have a meaningful
impact on one’s well-being – and that took a loooong time.
But mostly we remember hours upon hours of playtime with all sorts
of cool people. Whether it was mother and her daughter playing the
game in a quiet cafe opening up to each other, us on someone’s birthday
party with 15 Macedonians who managed to cross the language
barrier, got creative, and modified the game into spin the bottle
activity, or as the game was initially intended: a small group of
friends having a picnic and simply sharing a few hours in a meaningful
way while having fun – the game always brought something new and
interesting to the surface.
But as much as we enjoyed this period we know it’s time to let
The Well-being Game go into the world and meet new people.
People who, just like us, need more meaningful conversations,
fun experiences and who care about their well-being.
